To Whom It May Concern,
I am a Canadian citizen temporarily living in the United States where I just finished obtaining some post-doctoral training. I plan to return to Canada with my new fiancee, who is American. We plan to get married in March in Alberta, and plan to open a veterinary clinic in Edmonton in April where I will put my new skills to work.
I would like to apply to sponsor my fiancee as an immigrant, and have a few questions:
1. Can I do this while myself living outside of Canada?
2. If my income was temporarily low due to my student status, will I be able to sponsor her? Because we wish to open a clinic together, I will have none of the usual check stubs, etc. Just a balance sheet with more assets than liabilities.
3. Is there a better way for her to immigrate to Canada, given the above situation?
Please answer these three questions, or pass them along to someone who can. I look forward to your reply.
