If you have family members overseas, they can join you in Canada under the Family Sponsorship program and obtain PR status. Canada gives top priority to families. Find out how Canadian citizens and permanent residents may reunite with their loved ones in Canada.
Your spouse, common law partner, conjugal partner or dependent children may apply to obtain Permanent Resident status in Canada. Depending on who you sponsor, different eligibility criteria have to be met.
If you meet the criteria under family sponsorship, you will be required to:
1) Support your family members financially.
2) Ensure that your family members do not need social assistance from the government.
