Dependent Child Sponsorship

Children under the age of 22 and not having a spouse or common-law partner qualify as dependent children for Canadian immigration sponsorship. As long as they satisfy these requirements, you can sponsor

  • your own child if he/she is not a Canadian citizen already,
  • an adopted child
  • An orphaned family member
  • your spouse or common-law partner’s own child

Your eligibility as a sponsor includes you being a Canadian citizen or a permanent resident of Canada or a person registered in Canada as an Indian under the Canadian Indian Act. Most often, you do not need to demonstrate your financial status for child sponsorship, but it may differ in certain specific cases.
