You may sponsor your your father, mother, grandfather or grandmother, or your orphaned brother, sister, nephew, niece, grandson or granddaughter, who is under the age of 18 and not married or in a common-law relationship, or, a child you plan to adopt, to immigrate to Canada as permanent residents. In order to be a sponsor, you must be a Canadian citizen or a permanent resident of Canada, over 18, who lives in Quebec. The sponsor must also meet the following qualifications:
- be a Canadian citizen or permanent resident over age 18 who resides in Quebec,
- have sufficient financial resources,
- have sufficient income to facilitate sponsorship, and
- agree to act as the sponsor.
The sponsorship process begins with the sponsor submitting an application to the IRCC. After this, your family member must complete and sign the Demande de sélection permanente – Catégorie du regroupement familial form (Application for permanent selection – Family reunification class), and return it to you promptly. You must enclose this form with your undertaking application and, submit an undertaking to the Government of Quebec along with the “Application for Permanent Selection”.
Upon acceptance of your Undertaking Application, a CSQ will be issued to your family member and the Government of Quebec will forward their decision to the Canadian visa office. The family member may then apply for permanent residence with the IRCC.
