Sponsor Your Spouse Or
Partner To Canada

Spouse PR Visa

Looking to obtain Permanent Residency (PR) for your spouse in Canada?

There are several immigration programs and pathways that may be applicable. The two most common routes for family reunification, including spouses, are the Family Class Sponsorship and the Spouse or Common-Law Partner in Canada (SCLPC) class. Here’s an overview of each:

1. Family Class Sponsorship:
  • Sponsor Eligibility: A Canadian citizen or permanent resident can sponsor their spouse, common-law partner, conjugal partner, dependent child, or other eligible relatives.
  • Applicant Eligibility: The spouse being sponsored must be a spouse, common-law partner, or conjugal partner. The sponsor must demonstrate the ability to support the sponsored person financially.
2. Spouse or Common-Law Partner in Canada (SCLPC) Class:
  • Eligibility: This program is for spouses or common-law partners who are already living with their Canadian citizen or permanent resident sponsor in Canada.

The application process for both options involves several steps, including the submission of supporting documents, medical examinations, and criminal background checks. It’s essential to meet all eligibility criteria and provide accurate and complete information during the application process.

Applicants should be aware that processing times may vary, and it’s important to check the most up-to-date information on the official website of Immigration, Refugees, and Citizenship Canada (IRCC).

Key Considerations:
  • Financial Responsibility: Sponsors are required to sign an undertaking, committing to providing financial support for the sponsored spouse for a specified period after they become a permanent resident.
  • Conditional Permanent Residence: Spouses and partners sponsored through Family Class Sponsorship are subject to a conditional permanent residence period of two years if they have been in a relationship with their sponsor for less than two years or if they have no children in common. This condition is to deter fraudulent relationships.
  • Legal Assistance: Due to the complexities of immigration processes, some individuals choose to seek legal assistance or consult with immigration professionals to ensure they understand the requirements and submit a complete and accurate application.
