If you're married or in a common-law partnership with a Canadian, here's a breakdown of the Canada spousal sponsorship process.


Priorities for Canada sponsorship by a spouse


·         Through the Spousal, Partner, and Children category, the government's Immigration Levels Plan 2022-2024 aims to welcome 80,000 new immigrants every year.

·         Most of the applying immigrants are Canadian spouses or partners.

·         Canada Spousal visa applications typically take a year to process. Following the pandemic's delays, Immigration Minister Sean Fraser recently promised that new spousal applications might be processed in as little as 12 months. In addition, Canada has created a tracker to help Canada spousal visa applicants keep track of their applications.

·         If your husband, common-law partner, or conjugal partner is a Canadian citizen or Canada permanent resident, here's how they can sponsor you for Canadian immigration.

The process of spousal sponsorship in Canada


Both you and your spouse should be able to meet the Canada Spouse Visa requirements. If you intend to apply for permanent residency in Canada, you must demonstrate that you are truly in a relationship with your partner, and that your relationship is not only intended to obtain residency.

Spouses and common-law partners do not need to be in Canada to be sponsored. Citizens of Canada can apply to sponsor someone from another country as long as they can demonstrate to the IRCC that they will live in Canada once their application is accepted.  Canada Permanent residents are able to sponsor their spouses only from Canada, even if their partners are living in another country.


Eligibility criteria for your Canadian partner


You may be able to sponsor someone if you are a Canadian citizen or Canada permanent resident who is at least 18 years old.


• They are a citizen or permanent resident of Canada, or an Indigenous person as defined by the Canadian Indian Act;

• Show that they do not receive social assistance unless they are disabled; and

• Is able to meet the sponsored person's financial demands.


Sponsorship qualifying criteria for you, the person being sponsored

One of these three criteria must apply to your connection with your Canadian partner:


• Spouses: In your presence, you and your Canadian citizen or Canada permanent resident partner were lawfully married in a ceremony.

• Common-law partners: You and your Canadian partner must have lived together for at least 12 months if you are not legally married.

• Conjugal partner: This option is available to you if you are not legally married to your Canadian partner but have been in a relationship with them for at least a year and live outside of Canada and are unable to marry them.

According to IRCC, the relationship could be categorized as a conjugal partnership. Some of the impediments to marriage include cultural, religious, or legal.



You must be at least 18 years old to be sponsored in any of these categories.


You must also pass a health, security, and criminality check to be accepted in Canada.


How is a spousal sponsorship application submitted?


Once you've determined that you and your partner are eligible for Canada Spouse Visa, go to the government's website to get the IRCC application package. Then, on the IRCC's website, you must pay the required payments, which include a processing fee, a right of Canada permanent residency fee, and a biometrics fee. You are required to submit two applications at the same given time: first a sponsorship application and second an application for Canada Permanent Residence.

After the application has been approved by the IRCC,

Even though you are a Canada permanent resident you and your partner must follow the Canada spouse visa sponsorship rules and regulations. For the upcoming three years, it is the sponsor’s responsibility to be accountable for their spouse’s finances. If you seek financial assistance from the government during that time, your partner may be forced to repay the government.

The Sponsored individuals cannot sponsor another partner for the next five years after getting sponsored themselves.
