Question regarding "dependants".

Discussion in 'Family Class Sponsorship' started by parks552, May 25, 2018.

  1. Hello everyone,

    I'm writing you all in regards to a question I have about form imm0008enu_2d, the 'GENERIC APPLICATION FORM FOR CANADA'.

    My question is regarding the 'DEPENDANT(S)' section of the form (page 3 & 4). The section states the following:

    I'm being sponsored by my common-law partner, who is a Canadian citizen. Neither of us have any children, or other people we look after. I am already living in Canada (as a worker before, now as a visitor). I was browsing the forum and read through Leon's post, but I couldn't find a clear answer for my case.

    My question being: Do I still need to include my spouse or common-law partner, even though I am the one filling out this form and being sponsored, and do dependants include my parents? I'm just confused as to who I should mention here, or if I need to fill it in at all. (seeing as there's a "Remove Dependant" option).

    Thank you all very much for your time, I greatly appreciate it.
  2. You will not include anybody in the section, it will be removed entirely.

  3. Last sentence: "who are not already permanent residents or citizens of Canada". Your spouse is Canadian.
