Sponsoring a distant relative

Is it possible to sponsor a family member that is not a blood relative? I have a distant cousin that I have grown up with for most of my life. I recently have been granted permanent residence in Canada and now wish to send for her.

    Hi. You may under certain circumstances sponsor a relative regardless of age or relationship ONLY:

    1) if you do not have a living spouse or common-law partner, conjugal partner, a child, parent, grandparent, sibling, uncle, aunt, nephew or niece who could be sponsored as a member of the family class, and

    2) if you do not have any relative who is a Canadian citizen or a permanent resident or registered as an Indian under the Indian Act.
