I have been reading on CIC website how I can sponsor a family class member, Nephew 20 years old. Who you can sponsor
I want to quote here some para's from CIC website that I didn't understand.
Application to sponsor a member of the family class
This application is for Canadian citizens and permanent residents living in Canada who wish to sponsor close family members living abroad, including:
* children adopted outside of Canada or intended to be adopted in Canada
* brothers or sisters, nephews or nieces, grandsons or granddaughters who are orphaned, under 18 years of age and not a spouse or common-law partner
* any other family member if there is no spouse, common-law or conjugal partner, son, daughter, mother, father, brother, sister, grandfather, grandmother, uncle, aunt, niece or nephew who is a Canadian citizen, registered Indian or permanent resident or whom you may sponsor.
Can I sponsor my nephew using this category as he is 20 years old. Last part of the above in bold " any other family member....." is confusing for me. I have an aunt living in Ontario 88 years old.
Or to simply put it like this
How and in which category I can sponsor my 20 year old nephew still studying (done on and off some job).?
And is it possible that I can apply from here (canada) for him.?
I am a permanent resident and living in Canada for more than 2 1/2 years.
Thanks and regards
Depending on your circumstances, there are two options for who you can sponsor.Option 1
– Orphaned close relatives
You can sponsor close relatives, related by blood or adoption, such as brothers, sisters, nephews, nieces, or grandchildren only if they meet all of the following conditions:
1.They are orphaned,
2.They are under 18, and
3.They do not have a spouse, common law partner, or conjugal partner.Option 2
– Other relative
You may sponsor one relative, related by blood or adoption, of any age if you meet all of the following conditions:
you do not have a spouse, common-law partner, or conjugal partner, or one of the following living relatives you could sponsor instead:
1. son or daughter,
4. brother or sister,
5. uncle, aunt,
nephew or niece.
6.you do not have any of the above-named relatives who is a:
permanent resident, or
registered Indian under the Indian Act.
If the relative you want to sponsor has a spouse, partner, or dependent children who will come with them to Canada you must include them on the same sponsorship application.
If your relative does not qualify for sponsorship they may still be able to come to Canada as a skilled immigrant through Express Entry. Express Entry manages applications for certain economic immigration programs and selects applicants for their skills, experience and ability to contribute to Canada’s economy. Express Entry candidates may be awarded points for having a family member living in Canada.
