Family Class Sponsorship

Posted in Family Class Sponsorship

The Family Class Sponsorship application is available if you are a Canadian citizen or a permanent resident living in Canada, and you want to sponsor close family members living abroad, including:

Spousal Sponsorship:

If you are a Permanent Resident of Canada or a Canadian citizen, you are eligible to sponsor your spouse to Canada. You will need to provide strong documentation with respect to the genuineness of your relationship. You can file an inland or overseas Spousal Sponsorship application. Depending on your circumstances, you should consider the differences of both applications so that you can determine which option best suits your circumstances.

Common Law Sponsorship:

If you have been living together in a conjugal relationship for at least one year in an ongoing 12-month period (you are allowed short absences for business travel or family reasons) then you may be eligible to sponsor your common law partner.

Conjugal Sponsorship:

This category is for partners either of the opposite sex or same sex in situations beyond their control that keep them from living together so they would count as common-law partners or spouses. A conjugal relationship is more than a physical relationship. It means you depend on each other, there is some permanence to the relationship, and there is the same level of commitment as a marriage or a common-law partnership.

Provincial Family Class Sponsorship:

Many Provincial Nomination Programs (PNPs) have Family Class sponsorship categories. This is a separate category federal sponsorship. If you are a resident of any of these provinces then you may be eligible to sponsor your family members.

Parental Sponsorship:

Another option is the Parent and Grandparent sponsorship. Citizenship and Immigration Canada will re-open the Parent and Grandparent (PGP) program for new applications on January 2, 2015, by which time the backlog and wait times in the program are expected to have been cut in half.

Dependent Child and other Sponsorship:

Dependent children may be eligible to come to Canada in order to reside with their parent(s). You may also be eligible to sponsor your brother, sister, niece grandchildren etc.

    Reception was very nice and was sure to answer the questions he could but made sure I was taken care of by a rep at the firm. Shabnam was extremely helpful and I will be calling again when I am ready to proceed.

    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!

    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.
