About Canada’s Spousal
Sponsorship Immigration Program
If you are a citizen or permanent resident of Canada, you may be eligible to sponsor your spouse, common-law or conjugal partner, or dependent children to immigrate to Canada.
- Apply to be a sponsor. The application will vary depending on who you are sponsoring, and whether or not the sponsored person lives within or outside of Canada. We will help you gather the necessary applications, supporting documents, and proof for any required exams.
- Once your application has been submitted, the assessment of the sponsor will take place. This can take anywhere between 2 months and 2 years, depending on the family class (e.g. spouse, dependent child, parent, etc.).
- Once the sponsor has been approved, the person who is being sponsored (the applicant) will be assessed. Processing times will vary from 6 months to 6 years if submitted in Canada. Processing times for applications submitted outside of Canada may vary depending on your country of residence.
- If the sponsor was rejected, we will help the relative explore other application options. If the sponsor is approved but the applicant to be sponsored is refused, we can help you understand why and appeal the decision.
Illuminate Canada performs assessments based on the information you provide. Our office does not guarantee entry into Canada: your entry to Canada is at the sole discretion of Citizenship and Immigration Canada (CIC). We simply present the best scenario for you to come to Canada, provide guidance throughout the process, and guarantee our professionalism and due diligence in helping you apply.
