Family Sponsorship

Canada's family sponsored immigration program, also known as family-sponsored immigration, includes husband and wife reunions, children's reunions, and parent/grandparent reunions. It is applicable to all Canadian citizens or permanent residents over the age of 18 and guarantees family members and relatives to reunite with them in Canada. Canada united immigration is a one-step program to get PR, with no assets or investment requirements, and it is the type with the largest number of people selected in the Canadian immigration system. It is estimated that the first invitation will be held from February to April, and the second invitation will be held in the second half of the year with fewer invitations than the first.
