  • Parents and grandparents;

  • not be bankrupt
  • not be collecting social assistance
  • not have a serious criminal history, particularly in the form of spousal abuse or sexual offence, or
  • not have any medical issues (In the case of spouses or dependent children most medical conditions may not be used as a bar to admission.)

Sponsor Immediate Family Members

Citizens of Canada and permanent residents, who wish to sponsor their spouses and dependent children, do not need to meet the financial criteria set out in the Low Income Cut-Off Table (Guide 5196-Table 3) in order to qualify, as long as they meet the other criteria outlined above.

Sponsor Extended Family Members

If citizens or permanent residents want to sponsor their parents, grandparents and great grandparents, they must be able to prove their ability to support those family members when they arrive in Canada. The requirement is that they be able to meet the LICO criteria plus 30% for the three years prior to applying and throughout the application process.
