Interested in becoming a Canadian citizen? If so, did you know that you may be eligible to apply for citizenship through family sponsorship?
Understanding Family Support
The Family Sponsorship Program allows Canadian citizens or permanent residents to sponsor a family member in order to become a permanent resident in Canada. Ultimately, once a family member obtains permanent residency, they can become a Canadian citizen. The program is available for various categories of family sponsors, including spouses, domestic partners, dependent children, parents, grandparents, and siblings.
To sponsor a family, you must be 18 years of age or older, be a Canadian citizen or permanent resident, and meet certain financial requirements. Spousal or partner sponsors must demonstrate a true relationship. To sponsor a dependent child, the child must be under the age of 22 and unmarried.
Apply for Sponsorship
To apply for family sponsorship, sponsors must complete a form, submit documents, and pay a fee. Applications will be reviewed by the Government of Canada to ensure that the sponsor meets the eligibility criteria and that the family meets the requirements to obtain permanent residency. ## Road to Citizenship.
Once approved as a permanent residents, the family will be issued a permanent resident card and can eventually apply for Canadian citizenship. Canadian citizenship requirements include meeting residency requirements, passing citizenship test, and demonstrating proficiency in Canada’s official language.
