Programs for Provincial Nominees Express entry Immigration to Quebec Investor programs Programs for entrepreneurs and freelancers Other federal immigration classes such as the Caregiver Program, the Atlantic Immigration Pilot, the Rural and North Immigration Pilot, and the Agri-Food Pilot are also options under the umbrella of economic immigration to Canada. Family sponsorship Family sponsorship is an immigration category available to relatives of Canadian citizens and permanent residents.
Family members who can be sponsored are
Spouse or de facto/marital partner Dependent child (adopted or biological) Parents and grandparents In some circumstances, you may be eligible to sponsor other family members outside of the above categories. If you do not have other family members eligible to sponsor, you can sponsor the following family members:
Orphaned brother or sister Orphaned nephew or niece Orphaned grandson Humanitarian and refugee immigration Canada has an international reputation as a leader in accepting new refugees and other immigrants on humanitarian and compassionate grounds. An important part of Canada’s annual immigration objective is devoted to the admission of refugees.
How much money do you need to immigrate to Canada? The amount of funds needed to immigrate to Canada varies greatly. Some immigration programs require nothing more than the processing fees of your application. Others require substantial investment in Canada. Below we will break it down into categories.
All forms of business immigration require significant investment in Canada. You may require the applicant to have invested in a Canadian company or to make an interest-free loan to the federal or provincial government.
Family sponsorship: In most cases, no financial information is provided to sponsor a spouse or dependent child. If you sponsor other family members, such as a parent or grandparent, you must meet a financial requirement in order to apply.
Humanitarian and refugee sponsorship:
If you apply for sponsorship on humanitarian and compassion grounds, there are no economic requirements. The only time financial information is required under this category of immigration is if the refugee is a privately sponsored applicant. In that case, the Canadian refugee-sponsoring group must demonstrate that it has raised sufficient funds to sponsor the resettlement of the refugee candidate.
