What is Canadian Spousal Sponsorship?

Canadian spousal sponsorship is about bringing families together – after all, home is wherever your family lives.

Canada allows you to sponsor your loved ones for a life together. Similar to most immigration programs, the government requires extensive paperwork, documentation, proof of your relationship to ensure that your application will succeed.

Let’s see how can you sponsor your spouse to Canada in a most successful way.

Who is eligible to sponsor their spouse or common-law partner?

You can sponsor your spouse or common-law partner if:

  • You’re at least 18 years old,
  • You’re a Canadian citizen or a permanent resident,
  • You’re able to prove that you’re not receiving social assistance for reasons other than a disability,
  • You can provide for the basic needs of any persons you want to sponsor,

What are the requirements for Sponsorship?

Spouse sponsorship in Canada includes a promise to provide financial support for the person sponsored and dependent children, if accompanying the principal applicant.

Based on the type of relationship, the required documents for the application will vary. The important part is to prove that you have a genuine relationship. It is clear that every relationship is unique in its own. Therefore, you need to provide your strongest application in order to become successful with no delay.

What are the documents required for spousal Sponsorship?

  • Photocopy of your permanent resident card, or
  • Photocopy of your citizenship document,
  • Documents demonstrating your current civil status (relationship),
  • All other available documents demonstrating your relationship is genuine
