Dependent Child and other Sponsorship

Sponsoring your dependent child to Canada

Sponsoring your dependent child is an option for Canadians who have obtained status for themselves and who seek to be reunited with their dependents abroad. Eligible permanent residents and Canadian Citizens who qualify to sponsor may facilitate their dependent for permanent resident status.

In order to qualify as a sponsor, you must:

  • Be 18 years of age or older
  • Be a Canadian Citizen, Registered Indian or permanent resident
  • Be sponsoring a member of the family Class
  • Sign an undertaking promising

sponsor child To Canada

When you agree to be a sponsor, you must sign a contract called an undertaking with the Minister of Citizenship and Immigration Canada.  The undertaking is a promise to provide financial support for the dependent children. This also includes other health care not provided by public health, such as eye and dental care.

The undertaking ensures that these persons and their family members do not have to apply for social assistance. Its length varies according to their age and their relationship to you.

As you intend to be sponsoring your dependent child, there are other factors that you should consider as well. Essentially, you will need to demonstrate the validity of your relationship as well as the fact that you qualify to sponsor the dependent.

Dependent Child And Other Sponsorship

When completing pretty much any immigration application, you will be asked questions about any possible dependents you might have.

In case of any uncertainty, below is what qualifies as a dependent for the purposes of any immigration application:

A Son Or Daughter Is Dependent When The Child:

  • is under age 19 and does not have a spouse or common-law partner
  • is over age 19 and is financially dependent on his/her parents due to mental or physical condition

    Akrami & Associates was extremely professional and the most efficient legal team I have ever had the pleasure of dealing. They responded to my emails quickly, never missed a phone call and explained the process to me in such a way that anyone could understand, even me. Thanks to them, I was able to hire the workers my business needed mush sooner than I had ever expected. You can’t go wrong with them.

    Shabnam, I wanted to personally thank you for all your hard work and dedication to me and my wife. Our new lives together are all thanks to you. Considering the unique circumstances that initially prevented her, I had lost hope. I will make sure that if anyone I know needs immigration help, I will be sending them your way. Again, I can’t thank you enough.

    Fantastic news, I entered Canada without a hitch. Once the guard at the border saw the package you had prepared for me, he took about ten minutes and handed me my permit. What I relief! I don’t know why I ever tried this without you guys! Thank you!
