Canadian spousal sponsorship comes into action when Canadian citizen or permanent resident can sponsor their partner or spouse to come to live permanently in Canada. A person who is a permanent resident of Canada can sponsor a person as his/ her spouse if that very person is married to the permanent resident legally. A marriage between two people of the same sex is also recognized for immigration purposes, if the marriage was legally performed in Canada, or was performed outside of Canada in any other country where marriage between two people of the same sex is legally recognized.
Canadian children sponsorship programs hold sponsorship for your own child when they qualify as dependents after meeting the two main requirements.
Also to be eligible for the sponsorship, the child must meet all the eligibility requirements; i.e. all the required forms and documents along with the application.
