I have a question after i am working on the forms:
I sponsor my parents and also I will be representative of them, do i need to create another portal specifically for representative? The thing is I already started some forms in my current portal. Does anyone have ever created a representative portal? is three any difference? Or they don't care, I can just submit all forms, incl. Use of a representative form from a regular portal?

Hi Everyone,

I posted this separately but didn't receive any feedback, hoping it gets viewed here.

"After 6 years of waiting, I finally received the email today informing me that I finally can apply to sponsor my mother. I have two situations and questions I would like to ask. Hopping the more experienced fellas can help me sort out.

1. From excitement I accidentally signed up for the Representative Permanent Residence (PR) Portal instead of the Permanent Residence Portal. I used the email that I received the invitation on and now I am unable to use the same email to log in or to sign up to the Permanent Residence Portal. I ended up signing up for the Permanent Residence Portal using a different email address than the one the invitation was sent to. Do you guys think this will cause any issues?

2. My mother currently holds a visitor's visa that is valid until 2024. She also has been living with us in Canada since 2020 and she plans to continue to live with us. I am filling IMM 0008 and trying to answer the Current country of residence section. Do I use her original residence "Lebanon" or our current address in Canada?"

Thank you in advance
im not sure if you can cancel your Representative portal ,but lets say you cant when you apply using a different email you can add a document explaining why you are changing the email straight forward with full transparency .
for the second question you mentioned it yourself your mother is still under the the title of visitor in Canada so her actual place of residency is still the home country ,as long as you are respecting the dates ,and most probably if everything goes well the PR wont finish by 2024 ( in reference to the expiry date of the visa ) mentioning that your mother is in Canada presently on a visit visa can also be mentioned in the letter explaining why you changed the email address .
you will simply be delaying your process if you dont start it the right way

Hi Guys, I have a question, I was unable to meet the income requirement in 2019 due to a change in my career, but 2020 & 2021 income is pretty good. Is it a reject or can we write something in explanation reuesting for approval.

It will be an automatic refusal. LICO must be met for all three years and no letter of explanation will be accepted. Best to decline invite.

I've seen lots of posts from people with the same situation you are. And they were refused.
IRCC is very strict on income requirement.

Best of luck!

At the time of submitting the interest to sponsor form, I was a permanent resident, but now I am a citizen.
What status document shall I upload?

In the guide, it says, upload the exact same status document as I did while submitting interest to sponsor, but then it also says to use the updated information.

Shall I include both my Canadian passport as well as PR card and mention it in the letter of explanation?

Thanks God, I should invitation today.

Questions please if the team here can help answer:

-We are family of 3 (husband, wife and son).
-Sponsoring my mother (father passed away).
- I have no income but savings of 30K. My spouse will be cosigner and have income of 90K each of the three years.
This should be ok right?


-My two brothers are 22 years old and 26 years old.
I believe they do not qualify as dependent. Any chance of making a case that my 22 year brother cannot live alone back home and due to father passing, it has affected him strongly. I would request if he can be considered as dependent). any chance IRCC will approve this?


-Question of dependent?


Sometimes, they reference that need to put details for all family members 18+ and in Checklist, they reference all dependents who are 18 years of age and older.

Do I need to add details for brothers (22 yrsand 26 yrs) in form 5562.

If your husband is willing to co-sign and meets LICO for 3 years then yes. Your savings are not counted, only NOA.

Your brothers are not eligible as over 22. A letter will not change that. He is not a dependant.

Yes, current status + LOE would be the way to go. PR card is all cut up :)
