Who can apply to sponsor spouses, partners or children
Who can become a sponsor
You can become a sponsor if you are:
  • at least 18 years old
  • a Canadian citizen, a person registered in Canada as an Indian under the Canadian Indian Act or a permanent resident living in Canada:
    • If you are a Canadian citizen living outside Canada, you must show that you plan to live in Canada when your sponsored relative(s) become(s) a permanent resident.
    • You can’t sponsor someone if you are a permanent resident living outside Canada.
  • able to prove that you are not receiving social assistance for reasons other than a disability, and;
  • can provide for the basic needs of any person you are sponsoring (and in some limited situations, that you meet the low-income cut-off).
Note: There is no low income cut-off (LICO) for spouse, partner or dependent child sponsorships, unless a dependent child also has one or more dependent children of their own. If a dependent child you are sponsoring has one or more dependent children of their own, you must include a Financial Evaluation (IMM 1283) form with your application (see your checklist for more details).
Read more about eligibility requirements in the Complete Guide.
Who can’t become a sponsor
You can’t be a sponsor if you:
  • have failed to pay:
    • an immigration loan
    • a performance bond
    • family support payments
  • have failed to provide for the basic needs of a previously-sponsored relative who received social assistance
  • are under a removal order
  • are in a penitentiary, jail, reformatory or prison
  • receive social assistance for a reason other than a disability
  • are still going through the process of bankruptcy (undischarged bankruptcy)
  • were sponsored by a spouse or partner and you became a permanent resident less than five years ago
  • sponsored a previous spouse or partner and three years have not passed since this person became a permanent resident
  • have already applied to sponsor your current spouse, partner or child and a decision on your application hasn’t been made yet
  • were convicted of a violent or sexual offence, or an offence that caused bodily harm to a relative—or you attempted or threatened to commit any of these offences
Who you can sponsor
To be eligible for permanent residence, the principal applicant and any dependants must not be inadmissible to Canada.
You can sponsor a:
Spouse, common-law partner or conjugal partner
You can sponsor your spouse, common-law partner or conjugal partner if:
  • they are at least 18 years old
  • your relationship is genuine (real) and wasn’t entered into just to get permanent resident status in Canada
If your spouse or common-law partner is applying in the Spouse or Common-law Partner in Canada class, they must already co-habit (live) with you in Canada.
Important: A conjugal partner is, in relation to a sponsor, a foreign national residing outside Canada who has been in a conjugal relationship with the sponsor for at least one year. A foreign national residing inside Canada cannot be sponsored as a conjugal partner.
Dependent child
If you’re sponsoring a spouse or partner, any dependent children should be listed on their application forms. If you are sponsoring one or more dependent child(ren) as the principal applicant(s), you must submit a complete set of application forms and documents for each child.
Note: Canadian citizens can’t be sponsored. If you have a child who was born after you became a Canadian citizen, or your child was born in Canada, they might be a Canadian citizen. For more information on dependants who may be Canadian citizens, see Step 5 below

Guide IMM 5482 – Instruction to fill the Financial Evaluation form (IMM 1283)
The Financial Evaluation form (IMM 1283) will help you assess if you (and your spouse or common-law partner, if he or she is co-signing the undertaking) will have the financial ability to support the persons you are planning to sponsor and their family members.

If you are sponsoring a person other than:
  • your spouse, common-law or conjugal partner who has no family members, or
  • your spouse, common-law or conjugal partner who has dependent children who have no dependent children of their own, or
  • your child who has no children of his or her own,
you must prove that you have an annual income that is at least equal to the minimum necessary income to support the group of persons consisting of:
  • yourself and your family members, whether they are living with you or not;
  • the person you are sponsoring and his or her family members;
  • every other person you have sponsored in the past and their family members, where an undertaking is still in effect or is not yet in effect;
  • every other person for whom you have co-signed an undertaking that is still in effect or is not yet in effect; and
  • every person not included above for whom your spouse or common-law partner has given or co-signed an undertaking that is still in effect or is not yet in effect, if your spouse or common-law partner is co-signing your current sponsorship undertaking.
If you declared bankruptcy and are required to meet settlement arrangements, income earned during the period of the bankruptcy cannot be considered.

Co-signer
If you have to meet financial requirements and do not have enough money to sponsor your relatives on your own, your spouse or common-law partner may help you meet the income requirement by co-signing the undertaking.
The co-signer must:
  • meet the same eligibility requirements as the sponsor;
  • agree to co-sign your application to sponsor; and,
  • agree to be responsible for the basic requirements of the persons you want to sponsor and their family members for the term of the undertaking.
The co-signer will be equally liable if commitments are not met. If you are sponsoring a spouse, common-law or conjugal partner, you cannot have a co-signer. If you are sponsoring a dependent child who does not have children of his or her own, you do not need a co-signer.
Assets, potential earnings, or assistance from other family members will not be considered.
If your spouse or common-law partner is co-signing your sponsorship undertaking, make sure you complete questions 1.B and 15 to 19.

Social assistance
Social assistance means any benefit, whether money, goods or services, provided to or on behalf of a person by a province under a program of social assistance. It includes assistance for food, shelter, clothing, fuel, utilities, household supplies, personal requirements and health care not provided by public health care.

Family members and persons included in undertakings in effect or not yet in effect
The minimum income you will need to meet the requirements of your sponsorship undertaking is determined in part by the number of persons described in questions 2 to 6. For each group described in questions 3 and 4, enter the number of persons included in that group and give details of each person in the group as instructed on the form. We have already entered 1 in the box in question 2 to account for yourself. If you have a spouse or common-law partner and he or she is not included in 3, complete question 5; provide details as required. Enter in 6 the number of your other family members not included in 2, 3, 4 or 5; give details of each person in the group as instructed on the form. Read each description carefully. Add the numbers entered in each of the boxes provided for the number of persons in questions 2, 3, 4 and, if applicable, 5 and 6. Enter the total in the box provided at question 7. This total and the low income cut-off table will help you determine the minimum amount you will need to sponsor.

Minimum necessary income
Refer to the low income cut-off table (Table 1) and go down the column until you come to the line that matches the number of people as determined in Box 7. This is the amount of income you must have to sponsor your relatives. Enter that amount in the box at question 8.
Quebec residents should refer to MIDI’s Financial capacity evaluation webpage to determine if they have the financial ability to meet Quebec’s sponsorship requirements.

Your available income
Make sure you provide all the required information regarding the income you earned over the twelve months preceding the mailing of your application (questions 10 to 14) and, if you have a co-signer, the income he or she earned over that same period (questions 15 to 19).
The office processing your application may ask you for additional information and documentation if it is not satisfied you have provided sufficient evidence to sustain your income calculation.
Your available income is the amount of money you have earned in the period of 12 months preceding the date of your application, excluding any allowance or benefit of the type described in 12.B below.
To calculate your available income, you will need a document called Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) Notice of Assessment. You can view (and print) your tax return(s) as well as other personal tax information using the CRA’s My Account online service. To register or login, visit My Account. Your spouse or common-law partner will also have to obtain a Notice of Assessment if he or she is co-signing the undertaking.
If you are unable to obtain and produce a Notice of Assessment or if your income reported in this document is less than your minimum necessary income, you will need to provide documentation establishing the amount of income you earned over the period of 12 months preceding the date of your application, such as: pay stubs, if you are employed; a statement of business of activities, if you are self-employed; bank statements, if you have received interest income; statements or certificates, if you have other sources of income (investment, rental, pension, special benefits paid under the Employment Insurance Act, etc.). Your spouse or common-law partner will need to provide similar documentation if he or she is co-signing the undertaking and does not produce a Notice of Assessment or if the income reported on your spouse or common-law partner’s Notice of Assessment combined with your available income is less than your minimum necessary income.
To calculate your earned income, complete question 12 (calculation based on the “Notice of Assessment”) on the Financial Evaluation form with the help of the instructions below. If you are not producing a “Notice of Assessment” or if your total income calculated as per question 12 of the Financial Evaluation form is less than your minimum necessary income, complete question 13 (calculation based on preceding 12 months) on the Financial Evaluation form. The greater of the two amounts entered at 12.C and 13.C is your available income; enter this amount in box 14.
If your spouse or common-law partner is co-signing the undertaking, you will have to complete question 17 (calculation based on the “Notice of Assessment”) and/or question 18 (calculation based on preceding 12 months) to calculate his or her earned income. The greater of the two amounts entered at 17.C and 18.C will be your co-signer’s available income; enter this amount in box 19.
The total of boxes 14 and 19 will be the total income that is available to you to support your application to sponsor. This total must at least be equal to the amount of the minimum necessary income (see box 8) you need to sponsor.

Question 11. – Your situation over the last 12 months
In the table in question 11, complete the sections (A, B and/or C) which apply to your situation during the 12 months preceding the date of your application. If your situation changed during that period, in the Period I column, enter information on the most recent period and, in the next columns, enter information on the previous period(s), which make(s) up the rest of the 12 months preceding your application.
For each of the employers you worked for during the period of 12 months preceding the date of your application and from which you have received or will receive a T-4 slip, give details about your employment in section B, including your personal employment income. Personal employment income is defined as the gross income earned from your job(s) as reported to CRA from a T4.
If you were self-employed, give details about your business in section C, including your personal business income. Personal business income is defined as the net income earned (or loss incurred) and reported to CRA from activities conducted for profit from a sole proprietorship, partnership or unincorporated business. This would include professions, trades and businesses such as small retail outlets and restaurants. Income from other personal self-employment endeavours such as farming, fishing, commission sales, consulting and child care that are conducted for profit should also be included.
Be careful to indicate clearly the reference period (first line at the beginning of each section you complete). For example, if the date of your application was June 5, 2004, and you were self-employed during the 12 months preceding your application, you would complete section C in the Period I column, providing on the first line of that section the start (June 6, 2003) and the end (June 5, 2004) of the 12-month period. However, if you had been working for an employer for only six months, were self-employed for the two months before you were hired and, before that, were unemployed, you would first complete section B in the Period I column, indicating your employment information and, on the first line of that section, the date you were hired (December 1, 2003 for the purpose of our example) and the date of your application (June 5, 2004). Then you would complete section C in the Period II column, providing information about your self-employment and, on the first line of that section, the date that your activities started (September 28, 2003 for the purpose of our example) and ended (November 30, 2003). Lastly, you would complete section A in the Period III column, indicating income you earned from sources other than employment (for example, pension income or special benefits paid under the Employment Insurance Act – see questions 12 and 13 for details) and, on the first line of that section, the period during which you were unemployed (June 6, 2003, to September 27, 2003).
If you need additional space, provide details on a separate sheet.

Question 12. – Calculation of income based on the “Notice of Assessment”
12.A: Print the amount that appears at line 150 of the last Notice of Assessment issued to you by the CRA for the most recent taxation year.
12.B: Enter all of the following payments that were included in the amount at line 150 of your Notice of Assessment, add them up and print the total:
  • Provincial instruction or training allowance;
  • Social assistance paid by a province;
  • Guaranteed income supplement paid under the Old Age Security Act; and
  • Employment insurance: maternity, parental and sickness benefits paid under the Employment Insurance Act are considered income. Other payments such as employment insurance and federal training allowances are not considered as income.
12.C: Deduct the total entered at 12.B (line 6) from the amount at 12.A (line 1). The result 12.C is your total income as per this method of calculation.

Question 13 – Calculation of income based on preceding 12 months
Complete question 13 if
  • you cannot produce a Notice of Assessment or a document from My CRA account for the most recent taxation year preceding the date of your application to sponsor, or
  • you can produce a Notice of Assessment but the amount at line 150 is less than the minimum necessary income (see definition above) and your financial circumstances have improved since you received the notice of assessment.

13.A: Personal income from employment, business and self-employment
Add all personal income from employment, business and other self-employment earned in the 12 months preceding the date of your application to sponsor, as instructed. Enter the result on line 5 in section 13.A.

13.B: Other income
Calculate income that you received from other sources. Use the following definitions:
  • Net rental income: net income earned (or loss incurred) and reported to CRA from rental property.
  • Investment and interest income: income reported to and accepted by CRA from dividend payments, interest, stocks, bonds and other investments and, interest on savings deposits.
  • Pension income: income from Old Age Security, Canada/Quebec Pension Plan, other pensions, superannuation and annuity payments from Canadian sources. Do not include Guaranteed Income Supplement (GIS) payments.
  • Maternity/parental/sickness benefits: maternity, parental and sickness benefits paid under the Employment Insurance Act are considered income. Other payments such as employment insurance and federal training allowances are not considered as income.
  • Other sources of income: include income you have received and will continue to receive on a regular basis that is not included above (e.g. spousal, child support). Specify the source of the income on the form.
You cannot include provincial instruction and training allowances, social assistance, child tax benefits, guaranteed income supplement or employment insurance payments.
Add all income received from other sources and enter the result on line 11 in section 13.B.
13.C: Add the totals entered at 13.A (line 5) and 13.B (line 11). The result 13.C is your total income as per this method of calculation.
Your available income (box 14) is the greater of the two amounts entered in boxes 12.C and 13.C.

Income available to your spouse or common-law partner, if he or she is a co-signer
Complete questions 15 and 16 if your spouse or common-law partner is co-signing the sponsorship undertaking. Print the required employer and/or, if self-employed, the business or professional information. You must also complete the calculation based on the “Notice of Assessment” (question 17) and/or the preceding 12 months (question 18) to determine the income he or she earned and that can be added to your available income if you need help to meet the financial requirement.

Question 16. – Your co-signer’s situation over the last 12 months
Complete the sections (A, B and/or C) which apply to your co-signer’s situation during the 12 months preceding the date of your application. If your co-signer’s situation changed during that period, in the Period I column, enter information on the most recent period and, in the next columns, enter information on the previous period(s), which make(s) up the rest of the 12 months preceding your application.
Refer to instructions for question 11 to help you complete question 16.
Note that if during any period in the 12 months preceding your application your co-signer was unemployed, the income he/she received from sources other than employment (for example, pension income or special benefits paid under the Employment Insurance Act) should be entered in section A.
If you need additional space, provide details on a separate sheet.

Question 17. – Calculation of income based on the “Notice of Assessment
17.A: Print the amount that appears at line 150 of the last Notice of Assessment issued to your spouse or common-law partner by CRA for the most recent taxation year.
17.B: Enter described payments that were included in line 150 of your spouse’s or common-law partner’s Notice of Assessment, add them up and print the total.
17.C: Deduct the total entered at 17.B (line 6) from the amount at 17.A (line 1). The result 17.C is the total income your spouse or common-law partner can contribute as per this method of calculation.

Question 18. – Calculation of income based on preceding 12 months
Complete question 18 if
  • your co-signer cannot produce a Notice of Assessment for the most recent taxation year preceding the date of your application to sponsor, or
  • his or her financial circumstances have improved since he or she received the Notice of Assessment.

18.A: Personal income from employment, business and self-employment
Add all personal income from employment, business and other self-employment your co-signer earned in the 12 months preceding the date of your application to sponsor, as instructed. Enter the result on line 5 in section 18.A.

18.B: Other income
Calculate income that your co-signer received from other sources. Use definitions in question 13.B to help you complete question 18.B.
Add the totals entered in boxes 18.A (line 5) and 18.B (line 11). The result 18.C is the total income of your spouse or common-law partner as per this method of calculation.
Your spouse’s or common-law partner’s available income (box 19) is the greater of the two amounts entered in boxes 17.C and 18.C.

Total income available to sponsor
Add the amounts in boxes 14 and 19 and enter the total in box 9, on page 1 of the form. This is the amount of money that you (and, if applicable, your co-signer) have available to sponsor.

Appendix C: Photo specifications
Important: If your application is approved, this photo will be used to create the first Permanent Resident Card for you (and your family members, if applicable). To avoid delays in getting your card, it’s important that the photos meet these specifications.

Notes to the applicant
TAKE THIS INFORMATION WITH YOU TO THE PHOTOGRAPHER


  • Make sure that you provide the correct number of photos specified in the checklist.
  • You must provide identical and unaltered photographs.
  • Photographs may be in colour or in black and white.
  • Photographs must be original and not altered in any way or taken from an existing photograph.
  • Photographs must reflect your current appearance and must have been taken within the past six (6) months.

Important information:

Check the Country Specific Requirements to see if you need to provide extra photos.
Please see the Guide for Permanent resident photos for colour examples of acceptable and unacceptable permanent resident photos.
If you are having your photos taken outside Canada, we strongly recommend that you ask your photographer to review both the Notes to Photographer found below, and the Guide for Permanent resident photos to see examples of acceptable and unacceptable photos. This will help reduce the chance of processing delays, and additional expenses, due to incorrect photo specifications.

Notes to the photographer
The photographs must be:
  • taken by a commercial photographer;
  • 50 mm x 70 mm (2 inches wide x 2 3/4 inches long) and sized so the height of the face measures between 31 mm and 36 mm (1 1/4 inches and 1 7/16 inches) from chin to crown of head (natural top of head);
  • clear, sharp and in focus;
  • taken with a neutral facial expression (eyes open and clearly visible, mouth closed, no smiling);
  • taken with uniform lighting with no shadows, glare or flash reflections;
  • taken straight on, with face and shoulders centred and squared to the camera (i.e. the photographs must show the full front view of the person’s head and shoulders, showing the full face centered in the middle of the photograph);
  • taken in front of a plain white background with a clear difference between the person’s face and the background. Photographs must reflect and represent natural skin tones.
IMPORTANT: Please see the Guide for Permanent resident photos for colour examples of acceptable and unacceptable photos.


The back of one (1) photo must:
  • bear the name and date of birth of the subject, as well as the name and complete address of the photography studio;
  • bear the date the photo was taken;
  • The photographer may use a stamp or handwrite this information. Stick-on labels are not accepted.



Appendix D: Contact information for provincial authorities
If the person you sponsor or any of their dependants gets financial support under a federal, provincial or municipal assistance program during the validity of the agreement, you will be in default of your obligations.
If you need information about how to repay the money owed, contact the provincial office listed below. Services are available during local business hours only.
  • British Columbia
    Ministry of Social Development and Social Innovation

Step 1. Get your application package
Get your application package, including your checklist, forms and instructions.
To get the right instructions and checklist, select from the drop-down menus:
  • who is being sponsored
  • the country where the sponsored person resides
  • the country where the documents you’ll submit with the application were issued
Your document checklist:
  • tells you which forms you need
  • lists all the documents you must submit, and
  • links you to instructions to fill out each form.
You must print, fill out and submit a copy of this checklist with your application. Place it at the top, as the cover of your application.


 楼主| 发表于 7/20/2018 01:54:47 | 显示全部楼层
Step 2. Gather your documents
Important: if you don’t include all the requested forms and documents listed on the checklist, we will return your application without processing it. If you’re unable to submit an item on the document checklist, you must include a detailed explanation of why you can’t submit this document so that your application is not returned as incomplete.


To make sure you send us an application with all the requested documents:
1) Use your checklist to make sure you send all the documents you need to submit:
For each item on the checklist, choose the situation that applies to you and check the correct box.
  • Only submit documents that apply to your specific situation. We’ll contact you if we need more information.
  • For any documents that are not in English or French, you must attach the following, unless your checklist specifies otherwise:
    • a certified copy of the original document; and
    • The English or French translation, and
    • An affidavit from the person who completed the translation. See Translation of documents below.

Important notes about using the checklist:
  • We’ll return applications with missing, incomplete, or unsigned forms.
  • If there are one or more sections of your checklist which do not apply to you, write N/A or Not Applicable in the margins of each of these sections on your checklist.
  • Check the country-specific requirements to see if you need to submit any original documents. If the country specific requirements tell you that you must submit an original document instead of a copy, you must submit the original or we will return your application. See below for more information about country specific requirements.
2) Check your country-specific requirements
You’ll find your country specific requirements on the family sponsorship application kit webpage.
Checking your country specific requirements will help make sure you send the correct documents for each item on the checklist and will increase the chance that your application will be accepted for processing.
  • To see additional forms or documents required for the person being sponsored (principal applicant) and their family members, select the country where they reside.
You may need to follow special instructions about specific documents based on the country you’ll get the documents from. For example, there are specific requirements for civil documents from different countries (e.g. birth certificates, other proof of identity, child custody documentation, family booklets, etc.).
  • To see instructions about specific documents, select the country where the document is issued. For example, if you are living in the United States but you are submitting a birth certificate issued in the Philippines, check the requirements for “Philippines” to make sure the document you are submitting is the right one.

Note: your application will be returned if any of the requested documents are missing (see section 10 of the Immigration and Refugee Protection Regulations (IRPR) for more information).

Make sure all photocopies are clear and easy to read. Other than copies of original documents used for translations, photocopies do not need to be certified. Don’t send originals unless we ask for them, because they will not be returned.

Important information: While processing your application, we may ask for more documents and there may be delays if you don’t submit them. Should you fail to respond by the deadline given, your application could be refused for not complying with an officer’s request.

Police certificates
The principal applicant and each family member 18 or older (who are not already Canadian citizens or permanent residents), must submit police certificates from the following country or countries with the application:
  • Current country of residence if you (or they) have lived there for six months or more.
    and
  • The country where you (or they) resided for most of your (or their) life since the age of 18.
Note: Some countries need a consent form from IRCC to issue a police certificate. Find out if any person included on the application needs a police certificate requires a consent form. If any country requires a consent form from IRCC to issue a police certificate, the consent form should be submitted to us in place of the police certificate. Once received, we’ll assess the consent form and start the police certificate request.
Important: If required police certificates (or consent forms if applicable) can’t be submitted with your application, a detailed explanation must be provided explaining why these are not being provided. This will likely delay the processing of your application.
See How to get a police certificate for up-to-date information about obtaining police certificate from any country.

Photos
If your application is approved, we’ll use the photos you include in your application package to create a Permanent Resident Card for you (and your family members, if applicable).
To avoid delays in getting your Confirmation of Permanent Resident document (which you’ll need to travel to Canada or become a permanent resident from within Canada), and/or your permanent resident card, it’s important that the photos meet certain specifications. See Appendix C for photo specifications.




Translation of documents
You must send the following for any document that is not in English or French, unless otherwise stated on your document checklist:
  • the English or French translation; and
  • an affidavit from the person who completed the translation (see below for details); and
  • a certified copy of the original document.
Translations may be done by a person who is fluent in both languages (English or French and the unofficial language).
If the translation isn’t done by a member in good standing of a provincial or territorial organization of translators and interpreters in Canada, you must submit an affidavit swearing to the accuracy of the translation and the language proficiency of the translator. A certified translator will provide both a certified translation and certified copies of the original documents.
The affidavit must be sworn in the presence of:
In Canada:
  • a notary public
  • a commissioner of oaths
  • a commissioner of taking affidavits
Authority to certify varies by province and territory. Consult your local provincial or territorial authorities.
Outside of Canada:
  • a notary public
Authority to administer oaths varies by country. Consult your local authorities.

Important information: Translations must not be done by the applicants themselves nor by members of the applicant’s family. This includes a parent, guardian, sibling, spouse, common-law partner, conjugal partner, grandparent, child, aunt, uncle, niece, nephew and first cousin.

Note: An affidavit is a document on which the translator has sworn, in the presence of a person authorized to administer oaths in the country where the translator is living, that the contents of their translation are a true translation and representation of the contents of the original document. Translators who are certified in Canada don’t need to supply an affidavit.







Certified true copies
To have a photocopy of a document certified, an authorized person must (as described below) compare the original document to the photocopy and must print the following on the photocopy:
  • “I certify that this is a true copy of the original document”,
  • the name of the original document,
  • the date of the certification,
  • his or her name,
  • his or her official position or title, and
  • his or her signature.



Who can certify copies?
Persons authorized to certify copies include the following:
In Canada:
  • a notary public
  • a commissioner of oaths
  • a commissioner of taking affidavits
Authority to certify varies by province and territory. Check with your local provincial or territorial authorities.
Outside Canada:
  • a notary public
Authority to certify international documents varies by country. Check with your local authorities.
Applicants themselves or members of their family may not certify copies of your documents. This includes a parent, guardian, sibling, spouse, common-law partner, conjugal partner, grandparent, child, aunt, uncle, niece, nephew and first cousin.

Step 3. Fill out the forms
Use your checklist to prepare the forms.
The last page of your checklist includes a list of all signatures that are required for each person included on the application. If any requested forms are not fully completed and signed (if applicable), or not included in the application package, your application will not be accepted for processing and will be returned to you.

Note: If you are less than 18 years of age, your form(s) must be signed by one of your parents or a legal guardian.


Note: Need help with a PDF document? Get help to open an application form.

You can also get help to complete an application form. If you’re having technical problems with a PDF document, see the Help Centre for common problems with form validation.

Important information: It is a serious offence to give false or misleading information on these forms. The information on your application may be verified.

  • Use of a Representative (IMM 5476), if using a representative.

Important information: Declaring all family members
If you’re applying for permanent residence in Canada, you must declare all of your family members. There are no exceptions to this requirement.
In addition, all family members must be examined as part of the process of applying for permanent residence in Canada, even if they will not come to Canada with the principal applicant.
Family members who aren’t declared and examined are excluded from the family class, which means you can’t sponsor them at a later date. If a permanent resident doesn’t declare all their family members on their application, they could risk losing their permanent resident status.
Find more information about why you must declare all family members.

Validate your forms
Some forms have a “Validate” button, specifically the
  • IMM 1344 (Application to Sponsor, Sponsorship agreement and Undertaking)
  • IMM 0008 (Generic Application form for Canada) and
  • IMM 5669 (Schedule A).
You should fill out your forms on a computer and validate them electronically to make sure you’ve answered all questions. This reduces mistakes and helps you submit a form that is complete. When you click on the Validate button, any missing information will be identified by a pop-up error message or a red square around the fields that need to be completed.
Important: If you are unable to fill out your forms using a computer or are unable to successfully validate your forms, you must provide a written explanation for why you were unable to do so.
After being validated, the IMM 1344 and IMM 0008 will create barcode pages (see image below). When you’re preparing your application, place these barcode pages right underneath your checklist.
Note:The IMM 5669 (Schedule A) form will not produce a barcode page when it’s validated.
IMPORTANT: If you have any problems viewing or validating your forms, please see these Help Centre questions:
Note: The Help Centre information about viewing PDF documents applies to all PDF documents.
After you validate the forms to generate barcodes, print the form. Then, the applicable client must sign the form in ink. Unsigned forms will not be accepted.

Example barcode page (if applicable):

Be complete and accurate
Fill out all sections. If a section doesn’t apply to you, write “N/A” (or “not applicable”) next to the appropriate section. If your application is incomplete it may be returned to you (see section 10 of the IRPR for more information) and this will delay processing.
If you need more space for any section, use a separate sheet of paper. Make sure you label this sheet with your name and the question you are answering.
Use the following instructions to fill out the forms. Most of the questions on the forms are straightforward and extra instructions have only been given for some questions. You must answer all questions.
