Immigration Canada understands the importance of family and realizes there are many Canadian Citizens and Permanent Residents who have loved ones they would like to, and wish they were able to, bring to Canada.
To assist these people, the Canadian government has outlined a number of categories in which the dream of uniting families can become a reality. The Family Class Sponsorship is meant to do just that.
Canada’s Family Class Sponsorship programs are Canada’s commitment to keeping families together wherever and whenever it is possible to do so. The Canadian government has committed to providing some of the most benevolent family consolidating systems and programs in the world.
The Canadian government has accounted for a wide variety of relationships that meet the requirements for Family Class Sponsorship. Some of these relationships include spouses and common-law partners, parents and grandparents, and dependent children. For grandparents and parents, eligible candidates should try to meet the requirements for the Super Visa program.
Which Family Class Sponsorship program is right for you?
- I have a grandparent or parent that I would like to bring to Canada.
Parents and Grandparents Sponsorship Program is the first of many ways to qualify to have a parent or grandparent join you in Canada. This program does have a yearly limit on the number of applications accepted. Once the limit is reached, applications for the Super Visa Program may still be submitted. This program allows grandparents and parents of applicants to come to, and stay in, Canada on extended multi-entry visas. These visas could last up to a total of 10 years.
No matter which program you choose, it is important that you ensure that the parent or grandparent achieves all eligibility requirements and the sponsor also, needs to achieve Canada’s sponsorship requirements.
