Start Your Assessment

Thousands of people immigrate to Canada each year with the hopes of building a better life for themselves and their families - sponsoring a family member to immigrate to Canada is a dream for most.

Once you are established in Canada and are economically stable and capable of sponsoring your spouse, common-law partner, conjugal partner, dependent child, adopted children, parents, grandparents to become a permanent resident, the Government of Canada supports such applications as long as eligibility requirements can be met. But, you should also bear in mind that many other families apply for the same status and not everyone can gain acceptance.

After one has sponsored a family member under the Family Class, and the applicant has immigrated to Canada, he or she would become a Permanent Resident. As a permanent resident, he or she would be able to live, study and work in Canada.

It should be added, that the process of obtaining such a status requires a great deal of experience and is certainly not recommended doing without the aid of an immigration professional. A simple misplaced bit of information or incorrectly submitted document would undoubtedly result in a denial of status. Prompting the applicant to have to go through the lengthy and costly process all over again.

Who is a Family Sponsorship For?

A sponsor who is currently a Canadian citizen or permanent resident is able to sponsor a number of  different family members. A sponsor who is looking to sponsor a family members to come to Canada under the Family Class, the sponsor is financially responsible to support the relatives. The sponsor may sponsor:

  • His or her spouse
  • Common-law partner
  • Conjugal partner
  • Dependent child
  • Adopted children
  • Parents
  • Grandparents

At present the Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) is not accepting applications for parents and grandparents, however, the option of a Super Visa is available.

What to ask a licensed Canadian immigration professional about family sponsorship applications?

Not all immigration professionals possess the the same expertise and experience.  Often we’ve noticed that Canadian Family Sponsorship is rejected because the right questions were not discussed.

Here are some very important questions, as a sponsor, you want to ask any person you are planning on hiring to help you with your Canadian Family Sponsorship application.

  • What requirements must I fulfill financially in order to qualify?
  • If you are sponsoring your spouse,  what supporting documentation is required to show the validity of our relationship?
  • If you are sponsoring a dependent child, what are the requirements for a child to be deemed a dependent?

Take a Look at Some of our Customer Reviews:

“They help me to appeal my parents’ sponsorship, which I submitted on 2010 by myself. I mistaking calculate wrong person, so I short $1000 on that year; therefore, my parents’ immigration was rejected early 2015. I talked to some other immigration consultants, they are either over promise or try to scare me out. Until I talked to Sunny, he is really professional and help me analyzing my case.

He is very honest person, he asked me to send all my documents to check if it’s a good chance to appeal, and otherwise it just waste money and waste time. After they accepted my case, he pass my case to Sonia, she is a very sweet lady, and she knows the immigration process through and through. They have always been on time and on top of all the documents, they are really organized. Usually appeal will take around 12 to 14 months, my case only took 20 days to win the appeal. I couldn’t believe it. My parents landed this month. I am very satisfied their service. I highly recommend them! And I am really appreciated their help!” 5-Green-Star-Review 5 out of 5 » Rating by: Anna L.

My wife and I used My Visa Source to find an immigration law firm to conduct an assessment and determine our eligibility for permanent residence in Canada. We were very impressed by the response time, professional fees, and most importantly, always able to get in touch with someone! We decided to use the firm for our case. I would highly recommend My Visa Source!” 5-Green-Star-Review 5 out of 5 » Rating by:
