Sponsor Background Check

Discussion in 'Permanent Residency Obligations' started by jml2015, Jun 16, 2019.

  1. Greetings:
    I am sponsoring my spouse from outside of Canada. What kind of background is performed on the sponsor? I assume it is limited to Canada but the application form seems to indicate that info may be received from or shared with foreign governments. Seems curious for a Canadian citizen.
  2. Very little checking is done for the sponsor.

  3. Thanks for the reply.
  4. Just to follow-up, is the background check limited to a criminal record check in Canada or does it extend to things such as previous marriages etc...? I ask because time is of the essence and I have lived abroad for many years. It would take CIS much longer to check my background than my wife.
