Enquiry Form


Welcome to Brampton Immigration Consultancy, where we understand the importance of family reunification and strive to make the journey through spousal sponsorship a seamless and prioritized experience. As per Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC), spousal sponsorship holds the highest processing priority, reflecting the Canadian government’s commitment to bringing families together.

Spousal Sponsorship Overview

The Spousal Sponsorship program stands as a beacon for those seeking to unite with their loved ones in Canada. Recognizing its significance, the Canadian government has reduced processing times from 26 to 12 months for 80% of applications, both within and outside Canada.

Eligibility and Process

For those seeking to immigrate under the spousal sponsorship category, a Canadian citizen or permanent resident must sponsor their spouse, common-law partner, or conjugal partner. If applying from outside Canada, upon approval, the Canadian immigration authorities will issue a Canada Spouse Visa (confirmation of permanent residence). The sponsored individual becomes a permanent resident upon landing in Canada.

If applying from within Canada, the application is processed first, and upon approval, the status changes from temporary to permanent. This category also provides an opportunity for the sponsored person living in Canada to apply for an Open Work Permit.
