Canadian citizens and permanent residents may be able to sponsor family members for permanent residency in Canada under the condition that they meet the requirements. To qualify as a family class immigrant, an individual must be related to their sponsor in one of the following ways:
- Spouse, common-law, or conjugal partner
- Dependant child
- Siblings, nieces or nephews, and grandchildren who have been orphaned, are under the age of 18, are not married, and are not in a common-law relationship
- Other relatives, related by blood or adoption, if you do not have living relatives in the aforementioned categories
If a relative satisfies the above requirement, other factors such as income, criminal background, and medical history will be taken into consideration. As a potential sponsor, you are also required to meet certain conditions related to age, commitment to financial support, and a proven willingness to remain in Canada.
