Canadian Sponsorship FAQs
Canadian citizens and permanent residents can sponsor their immediate family and
“other eligible relatives” for permanent residence in Canada. For further information
see Citizenship and Immigration and Canada (CIC):
My Cuba girlfriend and I want to marry in Canada, can I apply for her as my fiancée
or should I sponsor her.
If you have lived together for more than a year, she can be sponsored as a common-law
partner even though you are not married. You will have to prove two things: A) You
have indeed lived together for a year; B) Your relationship is a genuine relationship
and not one for immigration purposes.
