Family Sponsorship Services By Life Ashore Immigration Consultancy Inc.
Canada accepts nearly two hundred and fifty thousand immigrants per year. Of these, many are economic immigrants that include skilled worker class, Canadian experience class, and business class. Canada also accepts humanitarian and compassionate applicants like refugees and applications from family class members or those closely related persons of Canadian residents living in Canada.
Canada’s family class sponsorship program re-unites families by enabling adult permanent residents or citizens to sponsor a relative for immigration to Canada. The person seeking sponsorship must be a spouse, common-law, conjugal partner, or dependent children to be eligible under this entry program.
To help expedite the process of re-uniting with relatives and help individuals and their loved ones avail of family sponsorship class immigration at Life Ashore Immigration Consultancy Inc., we offer personalized and professional immigration services according to standards established by the Immigration Consultants of Canada Regulatory Council (ICCRC). We have also put together information to ensure clients understand the process and choose the right path.
First of all, if thinking of sponsoring a family member, you must be a Canadian citizen or a permanent resident of Canada, eighteen years of age or older. You must also reside in Canada or plan to live in Canada once the sponsored individual arrives. Similarly, under the family sponsorship program, you must prove that you are not receiving social assistance for reasons other than a disability and a signed undertaking, promising to give financial support for the basic needs of your spouse or partner or dependent children.
Similarly, sponsors must prove their ability to provide for the sponsored individual and their dependents’ essential needs and should be unable to provide for themselves. Similarly, suppose the sponsored relative is over nineteen years. In that case, the sponsor promises to support the sponsored person for a prescribed period, and the sponsored person must promise to make every effort to become self-supporting.
At Life Ashore Immigration Consultancy Inc., we assist in family sponsorship based on legal civil marriage and common-law relationships between same-sex or opposite partners who have lived together for twelve consecutive months. We also have experience in family immigration based on conjugal relationships, meaning the sponsorship applicant lives outside Canada, and due to reasons beyond their control, such as immigration barriers, religious reasons, or sexual orientation, they could not live together.
The last category of the Canadian family program that we would like to educate on is the dependent child class. To qualify, your child or the child of your spouse or common-law partner can be considered eligible as a dependent child if they are under twenty-two years of age and are unmarried. Additionally, before applying for immigration as a dependent child, the individual must be financially dependent on the sponsor parent and unable to support themselves because of a mental or physical condition.
Other things to note are the Canadian government’s sponsorship and processing fees for family class applications. There is a “right of permanent residence fee” for every sponsored relative who is not a dependent child that is only refundable if the application is withdrawn or refused.
