Family sponsorships have been a godsend to many families looking to reunite on Canadian soil. They have allowed countless loved ones who have been apart for a long time to be together once again. Also, those who finally move into Canada gain many new opportunities to start new lives closer to their loved ones. They can gain permanent residence status in Canada, allowing them to live, study, and work here the same as any other Canadian.
That said, the biggest hurdle you will have to overcome when utilizing the family sponsorship programs is the application process. It can get quite complicated, and if you are not ready, you can hurt your chances of success. For that reason, we want to share some secrets you can use to boost your chances of using the family sponsorship program successfully.
1. Read the instructions
When working with the family class sponsorship program, you will receive three items in the application package. One of those items is an instruction guide. You must read this, as it will detail what you need to satisfy to be eligible for the program in the first place. It will also tell you who you can and cannot sponsor, ensuring you do not end up wasting time trying to sponsor someone you cannot.
2. Note the documents and forms required
Another item you will find in the application package is a document checklist. This checklist will guide you on what documents you will need to provide when applying. The checklist will outline the things you need for both the sponsor and the person getting sponsored. For instance, if you are the sponsor, you will need to fill out various forms, such as a financial evaluation form, to see if you have the means to support yourself and the person you are sponsoring. On the other hand, the person being sponsored must fill out forms that include questions about the relationship and so on.
3. Look for assistance
There are many documents to provide and forms to fill out. These can all be extremely confusing, especially if you are in a hurry. As such, it is always a good idea to look for assistance in any case. For example, you can work with an immigration professional to help you figure out what you need to provide, along with knowing how to provide them. They will also ensure that the documents you give are up to date and thorough to boost your chances of success.
4. Always tell the truth
Whether you are in a live interview or filling out a document, you must always remember to tell the truth. Be honest with every detail you provide, even about the information you believe might hurt your chances of success, such as your criminal record. This is because the CIC (Immigration, Refugees, and Citizenship Canada) will find out if you are lying and possibly deny your application for good. You never want this to happen, so be sure to be truthful.
The application process when applying for a family class sponsorship program can be quite complicated. However, by following the tips we have shared above, not only will you be able to do it right, but you will also increase your chances of success significantly.
That said, if you have any questions in mind or need help in any part of the application process, we recommend that you work with an immigration professional. They will guide you through all the things you need to ensure you successfully reunite with your loved ones in Canada.
