About Spousal Sponsorship

The Spousal Sponsorship program is a subsection of the Family Class immigration category. Under this program, a Canadian citizen or permanent resident may sponsor a spouse or common-law partner for Canadian permanent residence.

Depending on your immigration goals, there are two application processes available:
Outland Sponsorship:

An Outland application is generally pursued when the sponsored partner is living outside of Canada. However, Outland applicants can be in Canada and apply through the Outland program, and may be permitted to travel in and out of Canada throughout the application process.

Inland Sponsorship:

An Inland application may be pursue when the sponsored partner is living in Canada. Under this program, the person being sponsored may be eligible for an Open Work Permit, allowing him or her to work for any employer in Canada while the sponsorship application is being processed.

After sponsorship:

Permanent residence granted under the Spousal Sponsorship program carries certain conditions that must be met:

  • The sponsor is financially responsible for the person sponsored for three years after the sponsored person becomes a permanent resident.

  • Individuals who come to Canada as spouses are themselves barred from sponsoring a spouse in turn for five years after receiving Canadian permanent residence.
