In order to sponsor their spouse of life partner for permanent residence in Canada, a person must either be a Canadian citizen or permanent resident. However, the potential sponsor and the person to be sponsored must meet certain eligibility requirements.
If the person to be sponsored is spouse, the sponsor must have married his or her spouse in an in-person ceremony. Virtual marriages will not be considered for the purpose of immigration.
If the person to be sponsored is a common-law partner, the sponsor and the sponsored persons must have lived together for at least 12 months.
If it is a conjugal partner, they must have been in that relationship for at least one year. They also need to demonstrate that there are no legal or social barriers that prevent them from getting married or living together. They must be living outside Canada. It is not possible to sponsor a partner living in Canada.
To sponsor a spouse, a person must be at least 18 years old, besides being a Canadian citizen or permanent resident. They must also prove that they are not receiving any social assistance and are able to financially support their family.
Canadian citizens can sponsor their partners, even if they are applying from outside the country. However, they must demonstrate that they have the intention to return to Canada, once the IRCC makes a decision on their application.
The sponsored persons must also be at least 18 years old and pass the medical as well as security checks.
