Hi Americana In T.O., dadaem is right, just want to ask if on page 2 of your PPR do you see something that says "Exlcusion: Unexamined Family Members"? Does anyone here who already got their ppr have this on page 2?
I think I know exactly what you are asking about.. may I quote it from the letter that came for ppr.. page 2, the last entry after the paragraph "change in circumstance" if any of you might want to check it.Exclusion: Unexamined Family Members
Please be advised that paragraph 117(9)(d) of the Immigration and Refugee Protection Regulations excludes from future sponsorship
any foreign national who will not be declared/examined at the time his/her prospective sponsor applies for and obtains permanent residence. If you (or any of your family members) fails to declare or present for examination any family member as defined by the Regulations
, then you (or your family member) will not be able to sponsor that undeclared family member at a later date as a member of the family class.
Subsection 1 (3) of the Regulations
, defines "family member" in respect of a person as
(a) spouse or common law partner of the person
(b) dependent child of the person or of the person's spouse or common law partner
(c)a dependent child of a dependent child referred to in paragraph (b)
Please consult section 2 of the Immigration and Refugee Protection Regulations
for the definitions for "Common law partner" and "dependent children"
All family members, whether or not they are accompanying you to Canada, MUST be declared and presented for examination to assess whether they are admissible to Canada. A false declaration on your IMM5406 (Additional Family Member form), any failure to declare a family member, or failure to present a "family member" for examination may be found to constitute misrepresentation and may render you inadmissible to Canada.
I think that is all that it says if you have that on the letter that was sent to you,
I guess this is to remind us to declare all our family members so that they will have a record of the family member (legitimate and or not) that we have, for future use given that if ever we wish or wanted to sponsor those that are listed. This specification falls under the Family Class Sponsorship.
Please check the Manual or Guide for instruction in filling up / answering the IMM5406.
I hope that I was able to address your concern accordingly. I am open for any correction or others opinion regarding natniel's concern.
