The goal of family class immigration is “to see that families are reunited in Canada” (IRPA, s 3(1)(d)). Section 12(1) of the Immigration and Refugee Protection Act (IRPA) specifically allows permanent immigration. The Canada family immigration visa is specially designed for applicants who are Canadian citizens or permanent residents who would want to sponsor their spouse, conjugal partner, common-law partner, dependent child (including adopted child), or other eligible relative (such as parent or grandparent) to become a permanent resident of Canada, thereby expanding family immigration to Canada. One of the most popular categories of immigration to Canada is for family members.

Other Eligible Relatives
You must sponsor qualified relatives such as your spouse, common-law partner, and/or dependent children in order to obtain a Canada family visa. While applying for a Canada family visa, your spouse, partner, or dependent children may be residing in or even outside of Canada. To be eligible, both you and your qualified relative must fulfil specific qualifying standards. It is the sponsor’s obligation to aid their relatives financially in Canada, thus there is no need for them to seek financial assistance from the Canadian government. In addition, the sponsor must fulfil certain LICO income standards. Under the family class program, you can even sponsor certain relatives such as parents and grandparents, as well as brothers or sisters, nephews or nieces, granddaughters or grandsons who are orphaned, under the age of 18 and not married or in a common-law relationship, and children who were either adopted outside Canada or intend to be adopted in Canada.
One of the primary advantages of applying for a Canada family visa from India is that relatives sponsored under
this category will no longer be subject to a points-based review under the Canada points system.
Sponsored family members who are awarded Canadian permanent residency the Family class program have the right to live, work, and study in Canada for an indefinite amount of time.
Family members and qualifying relatives who come to Canada as permanent residents can now work without limits, participate in language training programs, and seek appropriate assistance in obtaining suitable employment.
Moreover, permanent residents have complete access to long-term benefits such as government-funded healthcare, free education until the age of 18, upon which they have a subsidized rate of education at the university level with reduced tuition fees, and other sources such as Canada Pension Plan Benefits, Old Age Security, and Guaranteed Income Supplement.
With a Canada dependent visa, parents can apply for Canadian citizenship three years after they’ve been a legal resident in Canada.
A sponsorship agreement is essentially a contract that defines the criteria for both the sponsor and the family member or relative who is being sponsored to come to Canada. The sponsor must agree in this agreement that he or she is eager to support his or her relative or dependent for an agreed-upon period of time without getting any type of social assistance. Except in the case of elderly sponsored relatives, the sponsored individual must prove that they can fund themselves.
