Requirements for Canada Family Visas

Spouse and Partner

While applying for the spouse visa, the sponsor can include his spouse or his common-law partner in his application to the immigration authority. The requirement here is that you must have lived with your spouse or common-law partner for not less than a year. Your spouse must provide evidence of the marriage between the two of you.

You are also at liberty to include your spouse’s dependent children in your application.


A child of fewer than 19 years of age can be included in your visa application, except they have certain physical and or mental disabilities or health conditions. Before now, you could include 22 years old child in the visa application. A dependent child is one that does not have a spouse or partner or is financially dependent on you or your spouse.

Parents and Grandparents

In several instances, parents are usually not included on the sponsor’s initial visa application but are later sponsored either by a citizen or a PR visa holder. Nevertheless, they could be included in the application if there is proof of them living in some financial hardship or some other humanitarian and sympathetic reasons.

To sponsor your parents or grandparent, you must be ready to support them financially up to 3 to 10 years if they have no job on arrival to Canada.

Also, you may not be allowed to sponsor them if:

  • You had by any means defaulted in taking care of a relative you had previously sponsored.
  • You are bankrupt
  • You were convicted of a crime(sexual offense) or offense against a relative in the past


You are eligible to sponsor orphaned children under the age of 19 years in their capacity as brother, niece, grandchild, nephew. This category of sponsorship has similar eligibility requirements and restrictions with sponsoring parents or grandparents under Canada Super Visa.

Benefits of Program

The Canada Family Immigration visa has loads of benefits. If you are granted the Canadian Family Immigration Visa, it means you have been enormously allowed by the Canada government to bring your loved ones abroad to Canada. This is a reality under the Family Class Sponsorship class of visa.

Also, the Canada Family Class Sponsorship Program is a unique and generous way of reunifying families in the developed world, as part of the government’s efforts to keep families together as much as possible.

Family members are at work in Canada without any restriction.

They can apply for Canadian citizenship after three years of their stay.
