In Canada a lot of services pertaining to various needs of its citizens and immigrants are available. Sponsorship can be availed of for the dependent members of their residents’ family members, for parents, grandparents, children, spouses or lawful partners. Canada Sponsorship Service believes that families must be kept together always. Applications for Family class are a priority even at the visa offices in Canada.
Sponsorship for the spouse
This is a sub category in the family class section of the immigration policies. This caters to need for bringing one’s spouse on the Canadian soil if one is a permanent resident or a citizen of Canada. The citizen can thereby sponsor a spouse or lawful partner for making them a permanent resident of Canada.
These citizens or residents are called ‘sponsor’, and they must ensure that the person they are sponsoring has the approval of Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC), so that they can get a visa. They must pertain to one of the categories as mentioned;
- conjugal partner
- common law partner
Same sex marriages are also acknowledged in Canada. The rest will be taken care of by Canada Sponsorship Services.
Outland Application for sponsorship
This is applicable for partners that are living outside of Canada. They can also still be in the country and apply for this program. They will still be allowed to travel in and out of Canada even during the application process. These applications are conducted by the visa office and are processed through them.

After getting sponsorship
There are certain terms and conditions to be kept in mind when reaching out for a sponsorship program. If permanent residence is allotted to your spouse all the terms must be followed and dealt with.
Finances are always an issue with immigrants, and thereby every sponsorship program that you decide to select would ask for a valid income on your part. For in the next three years you will be the one responsible for the finances of your spouse once the residence is granted. That was the first condition.
The second condition is, in case your spouse and you decide to part ways, your spouse will not be allowed to bring in another spouse onto the Canadian soil. They themselves cannot act as sponsors for at least five more years after they receive a residence. Canada Sponsorship Service will advise you to follow the norms in order to avail of a smooth flowing process.Follow with us
