Welcome to Canada

Sponsoring a spouse, partner or dependent child

You can sponsor a spouse, common-law or conjugal partner, or dependent
children if you are a Canadian citizen or a permanent resident of
Canada. To be a sponsor, you must be 18 years of age or older.
You can apply as a sponsor if your spouse, common-law or conjugal
partner, or accompanying dependent children live with you in Canada,
even if they do not have legal status in Canada. However, all the
other requirements must be met.
You can also apply as a sponsor if your spouse, common-law or conjugal
partner, or dependent children live outside Canada, and if they meet
all the requirements.
When you sponsor a spouse, common-law or conjugal partner, or
dependent children to become permanent residents of Canada, you must
promise to support them financially. Therefore, you have to meet
certain income requirements. If you have previously sponsored
relatives to come to Canada and they have later turned to the
government for financial assistance, you may not be allowed to sponsor
another person. Sponsorship is a big commitment, so you must take this
obligation seriously.
To be a sponsor:
You and the sponsored relative must sign a sponsorship agreement that
commits you to provide financial support for your relative, if
necessary. This agreement also says the person becoming a permanent
resident will make every effort to support her or himself.
You must provide financial support for a spouse, common-law or
conjugal partner for three years from the date they become a permanent
resident.
You must provide financial support for a dependent child for 10 years,
or until the child turns 25, whichever comes first.
You may not be eligible to be a sponsor if you:
failed to provide financial support you agreed to when you signed a
sponsorship agreement to sponsor another relative in the past
defaulted on a court-ordered support order, such as alimony or child support
receive government financial assistance for reasons other than a disability
were convicted of a violent criminal offence, any offence against a
relative or any sexual offence—depending on circumstances such as the
nature of the offence, how long ago it occurred and whether a pardon
was issued
defaulted on an immigration loan—late or missed payments
are in prison or
have declared bankruptcy and have not been released from it yet.
