what do you mean by sponsor?
If you are relating it with the benefit you might get due to your friend in Canada then you are day dreaming.No,It does not help anything.
If it would then trust me millions of people have a friend,relative or someone who is living there who would have jumped off to canada right away
If you meant that the money will be provided by him then He/She can do it but still you will have NO BENEFIT in getting visa or whataever.
Hope that helped.
