There has been a lot of news recently regarding Parents and Grand-Parents Sponsorship program in Canada, due to the reason that many invitations were recently issued for the same. Most of you may know that certain individuals in Canada are eligible to sponsor their family members to Canada, and, majority of people think that the sponsorship program is just limited to Parents, Grandparents, Spouses, Common-Partners or Conjugal Partners.
But, we want to let you know, that the above is not always the case. There are specific sections in Canadian Immigration Law, which allows you to sponsor other family members as well. Canadian Immigration law lets you sponsor any other relative (outside Canada), if the person who is sponsoring, and, the one who is being sponsored satisfy certain eligibility conditions. There are specific provisions for the same in Canadian Immigration and Refugee Protection Act & Immigration and Refugee Protection Regulations.
So, if you have a relative who you want to sponsor to Canada, or, you have any queries for the same, please always feel free to contact us.
