What are the Eligibility Criteria?

The criteria to be eligible for a Canada Spouse Visa are quite simple. To be a valid candidate, your spouse or partner needs to fall under any one of the three categories. In all three categories the spouse or partner can be of the opposite or same sex.

  • Common-Law Partner: A person with whom you have lived with and have a conjugal relationship for a period of at least 12 months. You will have to provide proof that you are residing in a house together.
  • Conjugal Partner: A person with whom you have not been able to live with continuously due to their marital status, sexual orientation, or other legal obstacles that can be considered by the Canadian Government.
  • Spouse – The person seeking Canada Spouse Visa should be legally married to the sponsor.

What Are the Requirements for Canada Spouse Visa?

Spouse Visa for Canada has some requirements that need to be shown and signed by both the sponsor and the one being sponsored. They are as follows:

  • Present a marriage certificate – If the certificate is not from Canada, which is usually the case, then a proof of a valid marriage needs to be attached along with the certificate. The proof should hold legal grounds as per the Canadian law.
  • Intent of Continued Residency – The sponsor and the spouse or partner have to show that they will live in Canada once they become a permanent resident.
  • Sign Agreements and Undertakings – Both the sponsor and the individual being sponsored have to sign an agreement that confirms that they understand their mutual obligations and responsibilities. This agreement has to be signed by both parties. The sponsor will also have to sign an undertaking promising to provide for the basic needs of their spouse or partner.
  • Proof of Genuine Relationship – The genuine nature of your relationship with your spouse or partner must be proven. It can be done by presenting a marriage certificate, frequent communication, such as letters, emails and phone calls, photos of you and your partner together, joint legal agreements like a loan agreement, or bank accounts.

Who Can Sponsor for the Spouse in Canada?

As you have now realised, the rules for spouse visa in Canada are strict. But one main rule for Canada Spouse Visa that can never be ignored is the sponsorship clause attached to it. Not anyone and everyone in Canada can offer sponsorship for a spouse or a partner. There are some set criteria that the sponsor must fulfil to qualify.

You must be at least 18 years old and must be Canadian citizen or a permanent resident of Canada. This rule is necessary to apply for a Canada Spouse Visa or even to apply for a dependent visa in Canada.

Besides this, the sponsor also must comply with various other sets of rules like:

  • They cannot sponsor someone if they are a permanent resident of Canada but living outside the country. But this rule is nullified if the sponsor can present a plan to live in Canada when the person they are sponsoring comes over.
  • They cannot be a sponsor if they are receiving social assistance from the Canadian Government. This rule is nullified if the assistance is for disability.
  • They will have to prove that they can provide for the basic needs of their spouse or partner that they want to sponsor.

Canada PR Sponsorship Types

Though Canada Spouse Visa is practically considered as a PR or a Permanent Residency visa, there are many other ways in which other eligible individuals can be sponsored. Even if the person being sponsored is not their spouse, as long as the relationship is recognised and satisfies the norms of family relationships under the Canadian Immigration law, the said individual will be eligible for a PR.

But the fundamentals here remain the same. The sponsorship has to come from a Canadian citizen or permanent resident who is at least 18 years of age.

Other than spouse or partner, here's a list of types of family members that Canada permits its citizens and permanent residents to sponsor.

  • Children
  • Parents
  • Grandparents
  • Dependent relatives of qualifying relatives

Sponsorship can also be sought for a brother or sister, nephew or niece or orphaned grandchild, but for these relatives to qualify, they have to be unmarried or under the age of 18. Do note that siblings over 18 years of age and adults cannot be sponsored under any circumstances.
