Who is Spousal Sponsorship (Outside Canada) For?​

Spousal sponsorship is aimed at citizens or permanent residents of Canada who wish to bring their spouse/conjugal or common-law partner to live with them in Canada permanently.

Who is Eligible for a Spousal Sponsorship (Outside Canada)?

As a sponsor, you must be able to prove that you

  • Are legally a citizen or permanent resident of Canada;
  • Are at least 18 years old;
  • Can provide the basic needs for you and your family, including food, clothing, and shelter;
  • Can support your spouse/partner financially; and
  • Can ensure that your spouse/partner does not need to ask for financial help from the Canadian government.

Your spouse/conjugal or common-law partner must be at least 18 years old and must have medical, criminal and background checks. You will also have to prove that a genuine relationship exists between the two of you, providing solid evidence of your involvement and commitment.

The Spousal Sponsorship Process

First you must apply to become a sponsor. Your partner also needs to submit an application for permanent residence. The process involves several steps that can be confusing for someone who isn’t familiar with how Immigration Canada works, and ensuring that all the supporting documents are included and completed correctly can be challenging.
