Can I sponsor my Girlfriend or Boyfriend to Canada?

Can I sponsor my Girlfriend or Boyfriend to Canada?
Who can I sponsor to Canada?

We get many calls from clients asking us whether or not they can sponsor their girlfriend or boyfriend to Canada. If you have been in a relationship with your girlfriend and have lived together less than a year you cannot sponsor your girlfriend/boyfriend to Canada. But if you have lived with your girlfriend/boyfriend for at least one year you can apply under the common law sponsorship which qualifies you to sponsor your partner under the spousal sponsorship category. When applying under such a category you have to demonstrate you have lived together for at least one year and that your relationship is permanent and genuine.

Therefore if you have not lived together for at least one year and cannot demonstrate you are in a common law relationship then unfortunately you do not fall under the Family Class Sponsorship. This is not the end of the road; there are other options available to you by inviting your girlfriend/boyfriend for temporary basis to Canada such as the applying for the Temporary Resident Visa also known as the Visitor Visa.

An eTA is a big shift in how Canadian immigration works and it is going to change the way people apply to visit Canada. The eTA is for visa-exempt individuals who fly to Canada. Before people could visit Canada without needing to get a visa, but now, these individuals are required to get an eTA.
