Sponsoring a family member is one of the most common methods of obtaining permanent residence status for loved ones living outside of Canada. A Canadian citizen, permanent resident or a person registered under the Indian Act can apply to sponsor non-resident family members. However, the application process is very involved and can become costly if sponsoring multiple people. It is important to ensure your application is complete and correct the first time in order to avoid having to reapply.
