Before you or Dad add a family member, carefully check the definition of what makes a family member on IRPR. In fact, family members are not family members and cannot be added to a sponsorship application. This application allows you to sponsor your spouse, spouse or spouse who is at least 18 years old or your dependent child (if you are encouraging an adopted child, use the sponsorship package for adopted children). The person you are sponsoring and their family members must undergo in-depth, safety and health check-ups. If the sponsorship is no longer valid, sponsorship and residence requests are refused. A new sponsorship application must be submitted to the ROC-O. Important: If the person you are sponsoring (or your child) has one or more children under the sole responsibility of the other parent, you must nevertheless include the child in the application. Even if there is a written agreement or court order to show that the sponsored person does not have custody or responsibility, you must list the child on the application and that child must pass a medical examination. This gives the sponsored person the opportunity to sponsor his or her child as a member of the family class in the future if there may be changes to custody or the order of life. If a permanent resident does not declare all family members at his request, he or she may lose permanent resident status.
The sponsorship evaluation will help us assess your past and current commitments to the sponsorship companies you have signed or co-signed. This form and the supporting documents you send with your application will help us decide if you meet the residency requirement and if you can help the applicant. To remain in Canada as a permanent residence, also known as a lander, you must be sponsored by your husband. Your husband can start the sponsorship process, no matter where you are. If you are in Canada when the sponsorship application was sent, you can stay in Canada until it is processed. As part of the agreement, sponsors are committed to meeting the basic needs of sponsored applicants and accompanying family members for the duration of the business. These include requirements such as food, housing, clothing, goods or services, as well as health care and dental care that are not yet covered. You can find your country-specific requirements on the Family Sponsoring Application Kit website.
In most cases, the sponsor must reside in Canada to apply for sponsorship. However, a Canadian citizen is able to sponsor his or her spouse, spouse or dependent child while living abroad if the sponsor lives in Canada, if the sponsored person becomes a Permanent Canadian Residence. Quebec has its own process to help refugees.
