Canada as a country is all about family unification, the variety of Immigration programs will help you and your family unite together, and spousal sponsorship is one of the fastest routes to Canadian Permanent Residence. There is no minimum financial requirement for sponsoring a spouse. A happy family is more productive and can benefit the society as a whole.
Three types of relatives are eligible to be sponsored by a Canadian, those types are:
Spouse or common-low partner
Dependant children under 18 years of age who are not married or in common-law
Parents and grandparents
Engagement provides no status in Canada, you should be married or common-law in order to sponsor your partner.
If you are in a relationship for less than two years, and you do not share any children together, you should be aware that the individual being sponsored may have conditional permanent residence for a period of two years from the date the application is approved.
Always keep in mind that you need to be a Permanent Resident of Canada or a Canadian Citizen in order to sponsor a spouse, dependent child ,your parents or grandparents. No other type of family member is eligible to be sponsored. That means you cannot sponsor or be sponsored by a sibling, cousin, niece, close friend, etc.
