From the beginning to the end of our lives parents and grandparents play an important role in our lives. There are many people who come into our lives but the love and care that our families give us cannot be compared. You don’t need to feel lonely, sponsor your parents and grandparents and get that everlasting smile on your face. If you are an individual who is 18 years or older you are eligible to become a sponsor but obviously there are many other requirements you need to meet under the Family Class to sponsor your loved ones.What are my duties as a sponsor for my parents and grandparents?
You will have to sign an undertaking with the Minister of Citizenship and Immigration for this family class sponsorship. This undertaking is a pledge to provide financial support and look after their basic requirements. The basic requirements like food, clothing, shelter etc. Though the public health care will be available to them but eye and dental care will be your responsibility. It’s important that their needs are taken care of as soon as they arrive in Canada. The undertaking is for 20 years and it is to ensure that the person being sponsored will not seek social assistance during this period.
