Family Sponsorship

Canadian Family Class Sponsorship is internationally recognized as a comprehensive and inclusive initiative that reflects Canada’s longstanding commitment to family reunification, a principle deeply rooted in its immigration policy history. The Family Class Sponsorship program, integral to Canada’s immigration framework, has evolved significantly over the years. Initially designed to reinforce the nation’s social fabric by reuniting families, the program has been refined continually to accommodate Canadian society’s changing dynamics and needs. It stands today as one of the most accommodating and generous family reunification programs worldwide. 

Canadian citizens and permanent residents can sponsor family members for immigration to Canada. The following are the primary categories of Family Class Sponsorship:

Sponsors can sponsor their spouse, common-law partner, or conjugal partner in applying for permanent residence in Canada.

This program allows the sponsorship of parents and grandparents, offering them permanent residency in Canada.

Canadian citizens and permanent residents can sponsor their dependents and adopted children, ensuring family unity.

Includes sponsorship of orphaned brothers, sisters, nephews, nieces, and grandchildren. In specific, exceptional circumstances, other relatives by blood or adoption may also be sponsored

Frequently Asked Questions(FAQs) about Family Sponsorship Program

Under the family class sponsorship category, the following individuals can be included in the sponsored person’s application:

  • The spouse, common-law partner, or conjugal partner of the sponsored person.
  • The dependent children of the sponsored person.
  • The dependent children of the sponsored person’s spouse, common-law partner, or conjugal partner.
  • The dependent children of the sponsored person’s dependent children.
  • The dependent children of the sponsored person’s spouse, common-law partner, or conjugal partner’s children.

The sponsor must undertake to provide the sponsored family members with:

  • Food, clothing, shelter, and other basic requirements of everyday living; and
  • Health needs (e.g. dental, eye care) which are not covered by public health services available to all Canadian citizens and permanent residents.
  • The obligation to provide for the essential needs of the sponsored person(s) will only arise if the sponsored person(s) is unable to provide for these needs on their own.

The sponsor and the sponsor’s co-signer (if applicable) are obliged to sign an undertaking with the Canadian Government promising to provide for the essential needs of the sponsored person(s) for a period following the arrival of the sponsored person(s) in Canada. The purpose of this agreement is to ensure that the sponsored family members do not become dependent on Canadian public welfare assistance. The undertaking, once made, cannot be cancelled, or modified by the sponsor at any time after the sponsored family members have arrived in Canada.

You can appeal the case to the Immigration Appeal Division (IAD) within 30 days of the refusal. IAD appeals are lengthy, costly and by no means guaranteed. 

It depends on which Canadian Immigration Visa Office is processing your application and the type of family member sponsored. 

It depends on where the application is in the process.

  • You will get a full refund if IRCC did not start your application.

  • You will get the refund for Right of Permanent Residence Fee (RPRF) if IRCC has started processing PR application.  
  • You will not get any refund if your application is refused by IRCC. 



You can put a withdrawal request through IRCC web form. Please mention your name, your date of birth, your complete address, the date the application was sent, your client ID number (if available), the type of application (for example, sponsorship of my spouse), the reason for the withdrawal. If your sponsored relative becomes a permanent resident before IRCC get your cancellation request, the application can not be cancelled. You will have to respect your sponsorship obligations.

The duration of the undertaking varies depending on the relationship between the sponsored person and the province of residence. For spouses, common-law partners, and conjugal partners, it’s typically 3 years from the day the sponsored person becomes a permanent resident. For parents, grandparents, and other sponsored relatives, it may extend up to 20 years.

Sponsors must reside in Canada to sponsor family members, except Canadian citizens who can demonstrate their intent to return to Canada when their sponsored family members become permanent residents.

Failing to meet sponsorship obligations can result in the sponsor being deemed in default, which may affect their ability to sponsor in the future. Additionally, the sponsored individual may seek legal action for support.
