Canada Family Class Immigration Application Process

The Family Class Sponsorship process of Canadian immigration differs depending on where the Sponsored Person is currently residing and where they intend to reside in Canada.

A Sponsored Person can apply from:
  • Outside Canada; or
  • Inside Canada, if they are the spouse or common-law partner of the Canadian Sponsor (including the Sponsored Person's dependent child).  
     
For Sponsored Persons applying from outside Canada:
  • The Canadian Sponsor must submit the Sponsorship Application to the Canadian Immigration Case Processing Centre (CPC) located in Mississauga, Ontario.
  • The Sponsored Person's Application for a Canada Immigration (Permanent Resident) Visa must also be submitted to the Canadian Immigration Case Processing Centre (CPC) in Mississauga, Ontario.
  • Upon approval of the Family Class Sponsorship Application, Citizenship and Immigration Canada authorities will forward the Sponsored Person's Permanent Resident application to the appropriate Canadian Immigration Visa Office located outside of Canada. 
     
For Sponsored Persons applying from inside Canada (spouses or common-law partners and their dependent children only):
  • The Canadian Sponsor must submit the Sponsorship Application to the Canadian Immigration Case Processing Centre located in Vegreville, Alberta.
  • The Sponsored Person's Application For Permanent Residence In Canada must also be submitted to the Canadian Immigration Case Processing Centre in Vegreville, Alberta. 
     
For Sponsored persons applying to Quebec:
The same conditions apply as above, but the Sponsorship application will not be approved until it has been forwarded to Quebec and approved by Quebec immigration authorities.
