Are You Eligible to Sponsor Your Spouse?

The first step is to determine your eligibility as a sponsor. To sponsor your spouse or common-law partner, you must be a:

  • Canadian citizen

  • Permanent resident of Canada

You must also meet the following requirements:

  • Be 18 years of age or older

  • Be able to financially support your spouse and any dependent children

  • Not be receiving social assistance for reasons other than disability

Understanding the Sponsorship Process

The spousal sponsorship program is a two-stage process:

  • Stage 1: You Sponsor Your Spouse

In this stage, you'll submit an application to Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) demonstrating your eligibility and your genuine relationship with your spouse.

  • Stage 2: Your Spouse Applies for Permanent Residence

Once your sponsorship application is approved, your spouse can apply for permanent residence status. This may involve medical examinations, background checks, and an interview.

There are two streams under the Family Class Sponsorship program:

  • Spouses and Common-Law Partners in Canada Class (Inland): This stream is for applicants already living in Canada with valid immigration status.

  • Family Class (Outland) Sponsorship Class: This stream is for applicants living outside of Canada.
