SPOUSE OR COMMON LAW PARTNER

CANOZ VISA SERVICES

Spousal Sponsorship Canada

The Canadian spousal sponsorship program is a way that empowers the permanent residents and citizens of Canada to sponsor their spouse or common-law partner for the permanent residency of the country. Being one of the subclasses under the Family Class Immigration Program category it welcomes a substantial number of permanent residents to Canada every year.

If this is a pathway that you are considering attaining Canadian permanent residency, either as a sponsor or sponsored person, then there is much to explore.

We at CanOz ensure to answer all the questions professionally and ethically, that might cloud you when it comes to Canadian Spousal Sponsorship Program.

Are you eligible to sponsor your spouse to Canada?

You are eligible to apply for the sponsorship if you fulfil the following requirements:

  • You must be a Canadian Citizen or permanent resident.
  • Should be at least 18 years of age or more.
  • Must prove that you intend to live in Canada once the sponsored person becomes the permanent resident
  • Should be living in Canada.
  • Able to demonstrate that you are not taking any social assistance (exceptions excluded).
  • Able to take care of the basic needs of the person you are willing to sponsor.

*If you are living in Quebec, you are deemed to fulfil some additional requirements as prescribed by the Immigration authorities of Quebec.

How much time is required to sponsor a spouse to Canada?

Although the general processing time for a spousal sponsorship application is approximately 12 months but due to the current pandemic the duration has been a controversial issue as the working capacity of IRCC has been affected.

However, the standard processing time is 12 months but at times it takes longer to process the application as per the nature of the case.

To cast away such delays and ensure that your spousal sponsorship application is processed effectively you should do it right the first time. The team of experts and professional immigration consultants at CanOz have a great success rate. Consult our experts today to discover the best way to get your loved ones to Canada.

What documents do you need to file an application?

To validate the application, you would need to prove the authenticity of your relation with your partner, for which you may require:

  • Marriage certificate (if you are married)
  • Invitations and photographs of the wedding
  • Birth or adoption records of children (if you and your spouse have together)
  • Evidence of registration of the marriage with a government body

Also, you are required to submit any two of the following documents:

  • Proof of a jointly owned property by you and your spouse
  • Joint ventures
  • Utility bills bearing your names
  • Copies of ID’s issued by the government
  • Car insurance
  • Pay stubs or taxation forms that proves that you both reside at the same address

What is the cost involved in sponsoring your spouse to Canada?

The application processing fee is different for different cases. The government fee is aligned as follows:

Sponsorship Fee $75
Principal applicant processing fee $475
Right of permanent residence fee $500
Biometrics $85

*However, if your spouse has dependent children then there will be an additional cost involved of $150 for each child included in the application.

*For those in Quebec or plan to live in Quebec post the issuance of permanent residence are supposed to make an additional fee payment of $289.

How much funds are required for this program?

Contrary to other types of Canadian sponsorship programs, you are not required to meet any minimum level of funds to sponsor your spouse. Nevertheless, at the time of sponsoring a family member to Canada, you must sign a declaration stating that you would provide complete financial assistance to the sponsored family member to meet their basic needs.

You remain obligated to provide the financial assistance to your spouse for at least 3 years from the day your spouse, common-law partner or conjugal partner receives their Canadian permanent residency.

Who is considered as a common-law partner for common-law sponsorship in Canada?

According to IRCC, a common-law partner is not legally married to you, but has been living with you for a minimum of 12 months consecutively.

What are the documents required for sponsoring your common-law partner to Canada?

To sponsor your common-law partner, you will be required to provide the following documents to the immigration officers as an evidence:

  • Documental records for any children you and your common-law partner have together
  • Photos of you and your common-law partner that proves the status of your conjugal
    relationship
  • That you have lived together for at least one year

However, our immigration experts at CanOz help align your documents including letters of explanation that can attest your relationship status.

Ways to sponsor your spouse to Canada

As we all know that the Canadian government prioritizes family reunification, they have made it easy for Canadian permanent residents and citizens to sponsor their spouses. Although there are two options that you can consider while sponsoring your spouse to Canada depending on your case, we at CanOz surf through the minutest details of your case and help you pick the right option.
  • Inland spousal sponsorship: You can consider this alternative of sponsorship if your spouse is currently in Canada on a valid temporary visa. Also note, the application for sponsorship is also filed within the country.
  • Outland spousal sponsorship: This type of spousal sponsorship is the way to good to go with if your partner is not currently living in Canada. Here, you can marry your spouse in their home country, and later file the spousal sponsorship application at the Canadian visa office in that country.
Please note, that these two options come with their respective pros and cons. Therefore, you must first determine which option suits you the best. If you are looking to sponsor your spouse but do not know where to start, we are here to help you understand the basics and explore these two types of spousal sponsorship in detail.
