“Group of 5” Sponsorship Application for Canada

Hi Mary and Subuhi,
Thank you so much for all your hard work and your professional service you provided for my sister Saliha’s Group Sponsorship Case.

I reviewed the application and I am very satisfied with your service and I think you guys are excellent. I would not be able to handle this type application all by myself.

Thanks again!

      Hello Ahmed. Thank you for contacting us. Yes you can submit a Group 5 application. A Group of 5 application is one where five (5) Canadian or Permanent Residence can get together and sponsor an individual. They can be any individuals. The most important aspect of this application is the available income they have to support you.
      If your group needs assistance in putting together this complex application, please contact us directly at 1-416-410-7484 or directly at
      Best of luck,

    1. owen

      Hello Sam,

      Family sponsorship is something we can definitely assist you with, and we can also assist with refugee applications which can be complex because you will need to definitely prove that the applicant faces dangerous and difficult conditions in their home countries, but fortunately our experienced immigration team has a lot of experience in this area. We would be happy to help you immigrate, and once you fill out our free online assessment form, one of our immigration professionals will be in touch with you shortly

  8. Nihilah

    I applied group sponsor application in September 2012, and submitted all documents, but i did not get any reply from Canadian immigration from Delhi.
    All my family members are in Canada. I am the last member of my family.

    How can i get my file number from Canadian Immigration from Delhi?

    1. Michael Niren Post author

      Hello Nihilah
      It is hard to say since we did not handle your case. You can email the Embassy for an update or hire a law firm to take over your case.

  9. Brian Velho

    I live in India and am 26 years old.
    How can I come to Canada with my parents? Can I work in Canada?

    1. Alicia Kim

      Dear Brian,

      If you wish to immigrate to Canada and establish a new life in Canada with your parents, you can apply as a Skilled Worker. To do so, you need to have a valid offer of arranged employment in Canada or have one year of continuous full time paid work experience in one of the occupations ilsted in the National Occupational Classification list. Skilled workers are selected as permanent residents. Then, you may sponsor your parents.

      Hope this helps.
