I have been reading on CIC website how I can sponsor a family class member, Nephew 20 years old.

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:

    * parents
    * grandparents
    * 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

Nope, you have an aunt in Canada, also I assume that you have never been married and you have no children.  So you can't sponsor him (there is a family stream if you live in Man/Alta)

Don't want to make a new thread.

But can my mother sponsor my cousin? He is 21, and in school. She has no family here, except for me and my brother.

No, she has family in Canada.
