Spousal Sponsorship

  • You may be eligible to sponsor your significant other if they fall under one of the three categories of spouse and partner sponsorships:

1. Spouse
2. Common-law partner
3. Conjugal partner


  • A Canadian citizen or permanent resident who is at least 18 years old can sponsor the above categories.
  • Both the sponsor and the applicant must meet certain requirements under the law in order to be eligible.
  • The immigration officers will need to ensure that all requirements have been met by examining the forms and supporting documents.
