Sponsor Your Dependent Child

Are you a parent yearning to reunite with your dependent child in Canada? The Canadian immigration system recognizes the paramount importance of family unity, and one of the avenues available for achieving this heartfelt reunion is by sponsoring your dependent child to become a permanent resident of Canada. We fully understand that the prospect of reuniting with your child is a deeply emotional and intricate journey. Rest assured, we are here to expertly navigate you through the intricate process of sponsoring a dependent child for permanent residence in Canada.

Understanding the Sponsorship Program

Canada’s sponsorship program for dependent children is a part of the broader family reunification initiative. This program allows Canadian citizens and permanent residents to sponsor their dependent children under specific circumstances. Dependent children are generally defined as those under the age of 22 and unmarried, although there are exceptions, such as dependent children with disabilities.
