Family Sponsorship

Family Sponsorship is our way of empowering children by respecting and supporting their family units in our communities. When you sponsor a family, you support individual children within the context of their whole family. Become a family sponsor today and see the impact of your donation touch the lives of our children.

The Family Class Sponsorship Program reunites families by enabling adult permanent residents or citizens to sponsor a relative for immigration. To be eligible, the person seeking sponsorship must be a: ● Spouse, common-law or conjugal partner    ● Dependent child    ● Parent    ● Grandparent    ● Sibling, nephew, niece, or grandchild under 18 years who is unmarried and whose parents are deceased.

Sponsorship Agreement

Notably, the sponsor must agree to financially support their family member in the case that their relative cannot provide for their own needs. This is to ensure that the new permanent resident will not require government assistance. The length of this financial obligation depends on the individual being sponsored:

  • Spouse, common-law, or conjugal partner: 3 years
  • Dependent child: 10 years OR when the child reaches age 22 (whichever comes first); 3 years for a dependent child over age 22
  • Parent or grandparent: 20 years
