Canada Family Sponsorship

The Canada Family Sponsorship Program is one of the most favorable family reunification programs in the developed world. The Canadian immigration sponsorship for relatives is a priority, so the processing time is faster than other types of immigration applications.

With the Canadian immigration visa, you can bring your relatives to Canada to live with you. The Canadian government always creates the best conditions for relatives to permanently reside in this country. In particular, the Canadian government has always pledged to try to unite family whenever possible. Relatives of Canadian citizens or permanent residents can apply for a Canadian immigration visa under the family sponsorship. They can live, study and work in Canada if they become permanent residents.
