Family Sponsorship Services
Spousal and Parter Sponsorship
Spousal and common-law partner sponsorship is a two-step application in which the Canadian first applies to the government to be approved as a sponsor, then once that application is approved, the foreign spouse or partner applies for permanent residence on this basis. There are certain requirements that designate a partnership as common law.
Canadian citizens and permanent residents can sponsor their foreign-born dependent child or children to immigrate to Canada. A dependent child means a child under the age of 22 who is unmarried and not in a common-law relationship. The child may be your biological or adopted child.
Sponsored parents and grandparents will obtain permanent resident status, allowing them to live in Canada indefinitely, to work or study and access to social services such as medical care. A parental sponsorship application is a two-step process whereby the Canadian applies to be approved as a sponsor, then once this application is accepted, the foreign parents or grandparents apply for permanent residence on this basis.
Undeclared Family Members Sponsorship
Family members include your spouse or common-law partner, any dependent children, and any dependent children of your dependent children (grandchildren). If you fail to provide information on or don’t disclose a family member on your application, they are considered ‘undeclared’.

Claudia P – Parental Sponsorship
We were pleased to help Claudia appeal her case when Immigration failed to accept her father into Canada. Our team guided Claudia throughout the process, including helping her prepare the relevant paperwork, filing the appeal, and helping her prepare for the appointment. Mr. Matthew accompanies Claudia to the appeal in person. Claudia’s father was able to get Canadian residence status within one and a half years.
