In order to sponsor a foreign national to Canada, the person being sponsored, called the “applicant” and the person sponsoring, called the “sponsor”, have to both meet the eligibility requirements of the available and open categories. Currently in Canadian immigration law, a Permanent Resident of Canada or a Canadian citizen may sponsor a spouse or common-law partner, a dependent child, a parent and a grandparent. In some exceptional cases, another family member may be sponsored.
