Views 3101 Comments 0

A permanent resident of Canada can sponsor his/her spouse, partner or common law partner to come to Canada through Spouse Visa Canada. The legal permanent Canadian immigrant can apply for spouse visa and the spouse must also provide proof of sufficient earnings and assets to support you.

It either the husband or wife lives illegally in Canada, he/she must make sure that all the problems are corrected with their illegal status before you apply to sponsor him/her. Firstly, you have to apply for a temporary residence permit. The application can be fetched from the Citizenship and Immigration Canada.  Fill it up and once completed mail it along with proof of fee payment and supporting documents to the Case Processing Centre (CPC), Alberta.

If temporary residence is not approved, your spouse can apply for consideration on humanitarian and compassionate grounds. Once temporary residence is granted, you can apply for sponsorship for your spouse by submitting a sponsorship application to Citizenship and Immigration Canada. Your spouse must submit an application for permanent residence for which the previous immigration violation of your spouse will be overlooked. However, if your husband or wife is presumed inadmissible to Canada the application will be refused. They will not be able to bid against the decision.

The following are the categories that determine he/she will be deemed inadmissible to the maple country.

Seen as a threat to Canada’s security

Have an inadmissible family member

Has a serious criminal record for which they received a jail sentence of at least 10 years

Involved in organized crime

Convicted of human rights violations

If your spouse leaves Canada before his/her permanent residence visa and sponsorship agreement is granted he/she may not be granted entry back into Canada. In that circumstance, your spouse will have to reapply for Canada permanent residence from the country they reside in. The Spouse Visa Canada, process may extend to a year period or even more in that case.
