SPONSOR A PARENT OR GRANDPARENT FOR IMMIGRATION TO CANADA

You can have your loved one join you in Canada by sponsoring their immigration visa

Published by Hillfield Immigration on 17th May, 2021

At Hillfield Immigration, we can help you sponsor your relatives to join you in Canada as long as you are a permanent resident or citizen. If you have applied for express entry and are now a permanent resident, you can apply for the following persons to join you:
Spouse – this can be done with certain restrictions set by Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada

• Common law partner – also done with certain IRCC restrictions
• Conjugal partner
• Dependent children
• Parents – special IRCC conditions would apply
• Grandparents

A qualified immigration consultant or professional can also assist you in sponsoring your brother or sister, nephew or niece and grandchildren for permanent residency in Canada. Even if the family member you want to sponsor is orphaned, under 18 years and not married or in a common law relationship, Hillfield Immigration can help.

As a citizen or permanent resident of Canada, you can also sponsor another relative of any age of relationship under certain conditions. Many times, immigrants wish to sponsor an accompanying relative such as dependent children to join them in Canada.

Family sponsorships for immigration to Canada is popular and the IRCC has a specific pathway dedicated to this on their website. With the help of a qualified immigration consultant or firm, you can send an application to have your immigrant family join you in Canada and be given permanent residency from the IRCC.

Canadian citizens and permanent residents can sponsor their parents and grandparents on a first come first serve basis under the PGP pathway. This pathway allows you to apply under the program if the income requirements are fulfilled. Family members must be able to support relatives joining them in Canada. This is the reason for the PGP setting an income requirement.

A Super Visa is another pathway available to have family members joining you in Canada. This is a multiple-entry visa which is valid for up to 10 years and allows your family member to stay with you for this period of time as a long-term immigrant visitor to Canada.

This pathway is much faster in terms of processing time and on initial entry, family members are usually allowed for 2 years before being able to apply for an extension to stay longer, up to 10 years with you in Canada as an immigrant visitor.
