Hello all,
My husband and I are applying for an Express entry under the Federal skilled worker program. I'm the main applicant. He has a brother who is a Canadian Citizen with the Canadian passport.
Are we able to take the additional Sibling points since he's my brother in law and my husband is included inj the application as well?
I understood that "brother by marriage" can mean brother in law.

If yes, what will be the proof of relationship? Is it Birth certificates of both of them+ Brother in Law passport+ My marriage certificate?

Yes - that counts. You will need to show proof of the relationship between your husband and his brother. I proved this relationship with my sister by presenting our birth certificates, which showed the same parents. You may also want to upload your marriage certificate alongside to prove your relationship with your husband. Explain the relationship in your LOE so they know what they are looking at.

You also need to provide proof of residency. For my sister, I provided her driving license scan to show she is a resident of the province I want to go to but I also provided her passport scan to show she has citizenship.

Hello everyone,
My husband and I are applying for an Express entry under the Federal skilled worker program. I'm the main applicant. My husband's brother (same parents) has a sister-in-law (i.e., blood-sister of my husband brother's wife - from same parents) who is a Canadian Citizen.
Can we take the additional Sibling points with this relationship - "sister in law of my husband's brother" because my husband is included in the application .

If yes, what will be the proof of relationship?

No. Points are only given for siblings. A siser in law is not a sibling.

Hey,

We have recently received an ITA for Canada PR express entry. I am the primary applicant and husband is secondary. My husband's brother holds a Canadian PR. To get points for siblings, shall I select the brother/sister option in my family section or in my husband's family section?



Question in the application form: Does XYZ have a relative who is a citizen or permanent resident of Canada? (The relative must be 18 or older and living in Canada.)



This question exists in both my and my husband's section.

You would select the sibling in your husbands section (it won’t affect your points). Under your section select no.
During ITA application, we selected option for brother as Yes for both me and my husband's Family details. Would this be an issue now?

I also replied the same on the other thread by mistake. Apologize for the confusion.

Each sibling is worth 15 points so yes in the sense you’ll have less points. You can amend it no problem on your ITA application (and you can preview your score at the bottom of the page) just make sure your revised score doesn’t fall below the minimum CRS score for your draw as they’ll reject your application.

Hello all!
I'm applying for express entry and have my sister as citizen. Her husband and my 24 year old nephew are citizens as well. Is there a way to add the three of them? Or would only my sister give me the points?
Thanks!
