Agreement with the government of Canada
The sponsor must prove to the government of Canada that the immigrant will be provided for, in regard to their basic and essential needs. If the sponsored individual is over 19 years of age, then they must promise to take steps to become self-sufficient.
About the sponsor
The sponsor must have residency in Canada, or the sponsor must indicate that they will live in Canada by the time the immigrant arrives in the country. Also, the sponsor must be at least 18 years of age and not be in trouble with the law. This includes not being bankrupt or having a removal order against them.
A proof of all of these requirements must be submitted via paperwork. The process requires a lot of patience as you go back and forth with the Canadian Immigration offices. This can be a frustrating experience if you do not know what you’re doing. At Immigration Way, we can try to make the entire process easier for you.
