Spousal Sponsorship - Everything you need to know
If a Canadian citizen or permanent resident is in a relationship with a foreign national, the foreign national may be sponsored to immigrate to Canada as their spouse, common-law partner, or conjugal partner.
This is possible due to the Family Class Sponsorship Program, which allows Canadian citizens and permanent residents to sponsor their foreign partner if they are in a genuine and continuing relationship. This program allows couples to reunite and build a future together in Canada, while also providing economic benefits to the Canadian economy by bringing foreign workers with in-demand skills and knowledge.
There are 2 main options you can choose to apply under: Inland Spousal Sponsorship - Primarily for common-law partners and spouses who live with their Canadian citizen or permanent resident partner inside Canada, and Outland Spousal Sponsorship - for spouses or conjugal partners who live outside Canada.
