We are often approached by people wondering if they can sponsor their child if the child is above 20. Well the answer is yes!
A child or children of the sponsor can immigrate to Canada if they qualify as dependents under the Family Class Sponsorship Program.
If an individual is over 22 years, or married, or in a common-law partnership, he/she should be able to prove continuous financial dependence on the parents or be continuously enrolled in full-time studies. An individual of above 22 years can also qualify as a dependent if –
- He/she is financially dependent on the parents and pursuing some full-time post- secondary education, or
- He/she is financially dependent on the parents due to some physical or mental condition.
