“In a perfect world, spouses would not be kept apart by living in separate countries as their sponsorship application is being processed, but this is an unfortunate reality for many couples who are navigating the Canadian immigration process”

It’s difficult to move overseas and leave your loved ones behind on the other coast. Spousal sponsorship applications are processed with the utmost attention at Canadian Visa Offices as spousal sponsorship is strongly supported by Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC). Reunifying families within Canada is one of the goals of the Canadian government. The most sought-after immigration track under the family class is the spouse sponsorship program. For both in-country and out-of-country situations, the processing period for 80% of applications was recently shortened from 26 to 12 months.
A Canadian citizen or permanent resident must sponsor the spouse, common-law partner, or conjugal partner who wants to immigrate to Canada under the spousal sponsorship category. If you sought to sponsor your spouse from outside of Canada, the Canadian immigration authorities will give the applicant a Canada Spouse Visa (a confirmation of permanent residence) after the sponsorship application is authorized and a decision is made.
The applicant, who is being sponsored, must enter Canada before the temporary visa’s expiration date in order to become a permanent residence upon arrival. In Canada, applications for spousal sponsorship are processed first, and if accepted, the applicant’s status will shift from temporary to permanent. The recipient of spouse sponsorship in Canada has the option to apply for an Open-Work Permit if they choose to live there.

    Low-income-cut-offs (LICOs) for spouse, partner, or dependent child sponsorships are typically absent. However, you must reach a minimum LICO score, which is set by the Canadian government annually, if either a dependent kid you are sponsoring has a dependent child of their own, or a spouse or partner you are sponsoring has a dependent child who has dependent children of their own. A Financial Evaluation (IMM 1283) form must be included with your application if you are required to meet LICO standards


    It depends on several factors, such as the type of application, the country of origin, the completeness and accuracy of the application, and the volume of applications received by Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC). According to the IRCC website, as of September 2021, the average spousal sponsorship Canada processing time for applications submitted from outside Canada is 12 months, while the average processing time for applications submitted from inside Canada is 17 months. However, these are only estimates and the actual processing time may vary depending on the individual circumstances of each case.
