Members of the Family Class

Canada’s family class immigration program is designed to unite Canadian citizens and permanent residents with their loved ones.

There are two parties to the process, a Sponsor and an Applicant:

  • “Sponsor” is a Canadian citizen or permanent resident that wants to bring their spouse, common-law partner, or any other eligible family member into Canada.
  • “Applicant” is the one that is applying to come to Canada and wishes to live in Canada on a permanent basis.

Four Main Categories for Family Reunification

Canadians can sponsor certain family members and relatives to settle in Canada as permanent residents. The four main categories that fall under the family reunification program are:

  1. spouse or common-law partner;
  2. parents or grandparents;
  3. Dependent children – adopted or biological; and
  4. Other close relatives.

Helping you prepare accurate and complete documentation

Once it’s determined that you are eligible to sponsor your family member, you will need to gather all the necessary documentation and complete the sponsorship application. This can be a complex process, and it is important to ensure that you have provided all the required information and documentation. An immigration lawyer from Edmonton Law Office can help you to gather and prepare the necessary documentation and ensure that your application is complete and accurate.

If your sponsored family member is granted a resident visa under this class, they will be permitted to come to Canada and live with you on a permanent basis. However, certain conditions must be met for the sponsorship to be successful.

For example, you must be able to provide for the basic needs of your sponsored family member and any dependent children and meet specific income requirements. Book an initial consultation with our immigration lawyers, and we’ll help you understand these requirements and ensure they are met.
