Canada Family Sponsorship Program?

If you have family living in Canada, then you are eligible to be sponsored for a Canada PR Visa through Family Sponsorship Program. “Family Reunification” is considered as one of the pillars of Canadian immigration.

  • Canadian citizen; OR
  • Permanent resident of Canada; OR
  • A person registered in Canada as an Indian under the Canadian Indian Act.
