Spouse Visa

Spousal sponsorship is a process that allows Canadian citizens or permanent residents to sponsor their spouse or common-law partner for Canadian permanent residency. Spousal sponsorship is a family reunification program that aims to keep families together in Canada.

To be eligible to sponsor a spouse or common-law partner, the sponsor must meet the following requirements:

  • Be a Canadian citizen or permanent resident
  • Be at least 18 years old
  • Not be in prison, bankrupt, or under a removal order
  • Meet the income requirements to support the sponsored spouse or partner
  • The sponsored spouse or common-law partner must also meet certain requirements, including:
  • Being legally married to the sponsor or living with the sponsor in a common-law relationship for at least one year
  • Being at least 18 years old
  • Not be inadmissible to Canada due to criminal or medical reasons
  • The spousal sponsorship application process typically involves submitting an application, providing supporting documents, and attending an interview if requested. The application process can be complex and may require the assistance of licensed and experienced immigration consultants like Singh Global Immigration.

    If the sponsored spouse or common-law partner is still a student in Canada, they may be eligible to apply for an open work permit through the Spousal Work Permit Pilot program. This program allows the sponsored spouse or partner to work in Canada while the spousal sponsorship application is being processed.

    The Spousal Work Permit Pilot program allows the sponsored spouse or partner to work in Canada for any employer while their sponsorship application is being processed. This can be a valuable opportunity for the sponsored spouse or partner to gain Canadian work experience and contribute to their family’s income.
