The candidate who is willing to sponsor his/her parents/ grandparents to Canada need to submit an online application to express their interest in brining the dependent grandparents to live along. Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) draws 10,000 of application forms in a kind of annual lottery, through which candidates are selected to submit an application for super visa sponsorship.
As the available quota of the program is limited, IRCC suggests applying for one as soon as possible. This is a multiple-entry visa valid for up to 10 years. It allows applicant’s parents or grandparents to live in Canada for up to 2 years as their initial visit. To bring your parents or grandparents to Canada, you need to be a permanent resident or citizen of Canada. Also, you need to have a regular income proof and a mutual will to bring them to Canada.
The Spousal Sponsorship too comes under the category program of Canada Family Sponsorship Visa. This visa type allows a Canadian permanent resident or Canadian citizen to sponsor his/her spouse/partner to Canada.
In order to sponsor your spouse/partner, all you need to show is a valid relationship with each other as either of the one mentioned:
- Common Law Partner
- Conjugal Partner
Spouse: Any Canadian permanent resident or citizen of Canada can sponsor his/her spouse if your marriage is legal in the person’s home country. Canadian government has the right to ask you some proof of your marriage like photographs, certifications, etc.
Common-law partner: This option of spousal visa is for those who have been living with each other in a conjugal relationship for a period of at least 12 months with each and there is no gap during this time. For sponsoring, you need to show some legal evidences to Canada high commission.

Canada has acceptance for same-sex marriage too and it’s valid to sponsor your partner of the same sex. The Canadian immigration authority may ask you to show come proof of your conjugal relationship before giving you eligibility for sponsorship.

But you can also sponsor them at later stage through this visa category. This also includes common-law partner and conjugal partner. Common law partner is any sex (including same-sex partners) who has been in a live-in relationship with you for a period of at least 1 year.
