    It’s not easy to relocate to another country, leaving your loved ones on the other side of the world. Under the family class category, certain family members may be eligible to settle in Canada long-term and become permanent residents. They can live, study, and work in Canada once they become permanent residents, so you won’t need to apply for a guest visa or send a letter of invitation.

    Family class sponsorship, like other immigration categories, has particular conditions, such as a minimum requisite income that the sponsor must meet. If you’re trying to figure out how to sponsor someone to come to Canada, or you are already migrating and plan on sponsoring someone to Canada when you settle, you should start by looking at family sponsorship applications, eligibility, and conditions. If you are 18 years of age or older and a Canadian citizen or permanent resident, you may be able to sponsor a child, spouse, or common-law partner living outside Canada.

    When you sponsor a family member, whether it’s a dependent child or a spouse/common-law partner, you agree to financially assist them. As a result, you must work in Canada and earn a particular amount of money. Sponsoring a family member to come to Canada requires a significant financial investment and the signing of an undertaking agreement. Please keep in mind that in Canada, family sponsorship does not qualify for a tax receipt. Detailed information on how to sponsor a relative to immigrate to Canada, family sponsorship income criteria, how to sponsor a child born outside of Canada, and surrogacy and immigration issues will be posted subsequently. Here, let us look at sponsoring a Dependent child.

    Dependent Child

    The age limit for dependent children has been modified from “under 19” to “under 22” for immigration purposes. All new applications received on or after October 24, 2017, will be affected by this change. To be considered a dependent, your child must be under the age of 18 and meet the conditions for a dependent child. Children who are under the age of 22 and do not have a spouse or partner are considered dependants. Children 22 and older who match both of these criteria qualify as dependants: they have relied on their parents for financial support since before the age of 22, and they are unable to financially support themselves due to a mental or physical disability.

    In part two of this post, other sponsorships and criteria will be detailed. Meanwhile, in the comment section, which of the sponsorships mentioned earlier would you like to know about?
