Overview

One of the primary tenants of the Immigration and Refugee Protection Act is “to see that families are reunited in Canada.” As such, Citizenship and Immigration Canada (CIC) has an immigration stream (or “class”) specifically dedicated to help families who come from other countries to reunite in Canada - the Family Class.

If you are a Canadian Citizen or a Permanent Resident of Canada, you can Sponsor your spouse, common-law partner, conjugal partner, dependent child (including adopted child) or other eligible relative to become a Permanent Resident in the Family Class.

"How To Immigrate To Canada In The Family Class - The Authoritative Guide Including Québec And Super Visa Opportunities" will help Family Class applicants in understanding the requirements to successfully apply for immigration to Canada; in being aware of common issues and problems that can arise in the process, and in making plain some of the hurdles and costs that they can expect to encounter along the way.

Family Class applicants will learn who is eligible to apply; what the application process entails; the range of information that they can expect to gather and provide; the pros and cons of using an immigration representative; expectations for the post-application process and other essential information.

Additionally, this book provides detailed information on Family Class immigration to Québec, which, unique to other Canadian provinces, shares immigration jurisdiction with the federal government. Finally, this book provides detailed information on The Parent and Grandparent Super Visa, which allows parents and grandparents of Canadian citizens and permanent residents to visit family in Canada for up to two years without the need to renew their visa status.
