How to fill out a Sponsorship Evaulation IMM5481

Discussion in 'Family Class Sponsorship' started by Vaughn, Aug 14, 2011.

  1. Hello

    I am attempting to fill out this form but it does not make sense. In the online guide it states to fill in the following information however none of these questions are actually on the form. Did they make a mistake?


    Sponsorship Evaluation (IMM 5481)

    Who must complete this form?
    This form must be completed and signed by the sponsor and common-law partner, only if the latter is a co-signer on the application.


    Question Action
    Write the following information in the space provided:

    * Country
    * Province/state/territory
    * name of the declarant
    * name of the declarant’s partner
    * name of city, town, village
    * name of county (if applicable)
    * name of province/state/territory
    * name of the country
    * number of continuous year(s) in a conjugal relationship
    * date of the relationship (from-to)

    1A Check the box to indicate if you have jointly signed a residential lease, mortgage or purchase agreement relating to a residence in which you both live.
    1B Check the box to indicate if you have jointly owned property other than your residence.
    1C Check the box to indicate if you have joint bank, trust credit union or charge card accounts.
    1D Check the box to indicate if you have declared your common-law union under the Canadian Income Tax Act ( T-1 “General individual income Tax Return”)
    2 Check the box to indicate if you have life insurance on yourself which names your common-law partner as beneficiary.
    3 Check the box to indicate if your common-law partner has life insurance on him/herself which names you as beneficiary.
    4 If you answered “NO” to questions 1 to 3, indicate other documentary evidence you have that would indicate your relationship as common-law partners
    5 SOLEMN DECLARATION
    Write the following information in the space provided:

    * name of declarant
    * name of declarant partner
    * name of the city, town, village
    * name of the county
    * name of the province /state/territory
    * name of the country
    * date (day, month, year)
    * signature of the declarant
    * signature of the declarant
    * name of the Commissioner of Oaths
    * signature of the Commissioner of Oaths
     
  2. It looks like a mistake in the guide. Fill out IMM 5481 (the Sponsorship Evaluation); the instructions you posted are for IMM 5409 (the Statutory Declaration of Common-law Union).
     
  3. Vaughn,

    There is a mistake with the instructions.

    That was discussed here: http://www.canadavisa.com/canada-immigration-discussion-board/imm5481-the-instructions-do-not-match-at-all-with-my-form-do-i-have-a-differen-t79138.0.html;msg921187#msg921187

    The recommendation is to use the PDF version of the guide which is more complete:
