Your family may be able to immigrate with you to Canada if they are processed for PR as your dependents. This includes:

  • Spouse or common-law partner
  • Dependent child
  • Your spouse or common-law partner’s dependent child
  • A dependent child of a dependent child


However, your dependents are not permitted to arrive in Canada before you.


You can also sponsor eligible family members through the Family sponsorship program. This allows family members to live, work, and study in Canada. As a sponsor, you need to prove you will:


Meet basic needs of food, shelter, and clothing for your family member

Be able to support the family member financially for a period of time

Not be receiving social assistance for reasons other than a disability
