Canadian wanting to sponsor Conjugal Partner
I’m a Canadian Citizen (21 years of age) wanting to sponsor my Conjugal Partner (18) to come to Canada. My partner currently lives in the U.S, and is a citizen of the U.S. I am unsure of how to go about this. Or which would be easier:
Would it be easier to sponsor her as my conjugal partner. In which case I must have a specific income to provide for us? (I have no children or dependents, it’s just myself that I provide for at the moment). Or, would it be easier for us to get married, and I apply to sponsor her? Is there a specific income I must attain to bring my partner here as my spouse?
I’m also curious as to the income required to sponsor someone? What would need to be my income to sponsor her to come as a conjugal partner?
