Thanks for your reply. So, he has to wait till he gets his card and then submit his sponsorship application? His family is not with him and he is here on his own. Please tell me what he needs to do? He is lost looking for a clear answer!If your friend family is with him in Canada then yes they automatically would get their PR, but if their not here in Canada with your friend he would've to sponsor them. I have to do the same thing as well only my husband was approved with me because he was here in Canada with me, I have to sponsor my kids back home.
