Q & A: Sponsorship Following Landing

CIC News
Published: August 1, 1997

Q. I recently landed, and married shortly thereafter. I now wish to sponsor my spouse. I was told by immigration officials that I do not have enough income to show. What does this mean?

Answer: The sponsor in a sponsorship case must be able to demonstrate that a sufficient salary had been earned for the 12 months prior to the submission of the application.

In some cases of spousal sponsorship, it may be possible to regard these financial requirements less stringently.
