Default arpitaggarwal89's Spousal Sponsorship questions

I am writing this letter to explain the planning and research that we have been doing to get ourselves ready for move to Canada and what we will do next few months.
  • Planning/research that we have been doing until now
    • We have started identifying the potential neighborhoods in Canada.
    • We reached out to real estate agents for quotations but most of them have asked us to reach out 1-2 months close to actual move date.
    • We have been in touch with various staffing companies to research about Canadian job market.
    • Contacting moving companies to get a quote to shift furniture.
  • What is our plan while the PR application is in process for next 6-8 months approx.
    • Scouting trip by sponsor neighborhoods
    • lists of industries/companies you'll be applying to for a job
    • communication with immigrant service organizations
    • Prepare list of to-do that we would need in first 30 days to settle easily on arrival to Canada
    • Research about health insurance options

once the sponsorship application is approved we will move to Canada.
  • Plan after approval of PR
    • Make the move to Canada
    • Work out with existing employer at that time to get transferred to Canada office.
  • After landing in Canada
    • Continue job search
    • Meanwhile learn French language to get adapted into local activities.
    • Apply for insurance until we get jobs
  • Long term prospects that we intend to achieve in Canada include following :
    • I intend to pursue my higher education in Data Science domain and eventually do PhD
    • After working for 2-3 years in Canada, sponsored applicant intends to pursue MBA program from a top tier university in Canada.
************does this approach to show intent to move look good, any suggestions ******************

I am a bit confused. Are you asking in the context of spousal sponsorship if what you have written is sufficient proof of 'intent to return' to Canada?

If so, then I would have to say that it is very thin as it stands.

You must submit proof of intent to return with your application and as such, they are most concerned with what you have actually done already (although proof of your plans for how you intend to settle and support yourself for the first few months is also required).

For all of this, think 'prove it'! Also think 'if I were a case officer, would I be convinced?'.
  • How many recce trips have you taken to Canada already, where did you go, what did you do and can you prove these trips (flight bookings etc.).
  • How is the sponsor a Canadian citizen, when did they leave and why do they now want to return? What are the 'drivers'?
  • You do not yet seem to have decided where to live or why - not convincing at this stage - to say you will do this while your application is in progress does not sound convincing - or have you decided and are just trying to figure our precisely where - not clear from your posting.
  • You say you want to work out plans with your existing employer to transfer to Canada AFTER you get approval. Again not convincing. Why not speak to them now? Surely they have offices in a particular city? It would help if they would provide a letter saying that you have spoken of a possible transfer to Canada and that they are happy with this in principle and will facilitate this once you have your visa and send that in with your application.
  • Why learn French? Do you plan to move to Quebec?
  • Who do you know in Canada, where do they live and will they help to support you in your move (live with them for a few weeks until you can rent etc.).
  • Do you already have a Canadian bank account and can you show details of transfers already made to this in plan for your move?
  • Much more of a concrete plan for HOW you will support yourself once you move back.

Have a good read of this section in the wiki, it pretty much says all of this anyway.

  • How is the sponsor a Canadian citizen, when did they leave and why do they now want to return? What are the 'drivers'? I will think of some drivers to put in

  • Do you already have a Canadian bank account and can you show details of transfers already made to this in plan for your move? I will try to explore if this can be done remotely
  • Much more of a concrete plan for HOW you will support yourself once you move back. I believe this will be part of the explanation of question : how do you plan to sponsor when wife is unemployed.

Have a good read of this section in the wiki, it pretty much says all of this anyway.

Welcome to BE!
I've moved your posts (and Hurlabricks response) to a thread of your own - it's always better to have your own thead, that way you will get answers to your posts, not somebody elses.

Rather confused. Is this a spousal sponsorship question? If it is, don’t you just have to be married? Or “together” etc...?

No, that is not enough. For outland, you must also prove to IRCC satisfaction that you the sponsor intends to return to Canada if the PA is approved.

If you cannot prove this, they can (and do) refuse outland spousal sponsorship (note that they would invariably first ask for more 'proof' then if that was not sufficient, they would go through the 'procedural fairness' process, so you wouldn't just get a refusal 'out of the blue').

Why we want to move to Canada ?

In early 2019 we made a move to step out of India to pursue better life and future. So we got the opportunity to move to US. But ever since we have arrived we have seen so many reformations in immigration process that after every few months we are dilemma of what will happen next. We have made up our mind to move to Canada for stability. We have seen Canada’s immigration system has the stability which will give us confidence to invest our time, money and energy in future.

Plan before PR Approval
I am writing this letter to show the planning and research that we have been doing to get us ready for move to Canada and what we will do next few months.
1.Planning/research that we have been doing until now:
a)We have started identifying the potential neighborhoods in Canada.
b)We reached out to real estate agents for quotations but most of them have asked us to reach out 1-2 months close to actual move date.
c)We have been in touch with various staffing companies to research about Canadian job market.
d)We have started reaching out to furniture moving companies to get quotations.
2.While the PR application is in process for next 6-8 months approx we intend to continue the research of following:
a)Sponsor will visit Canada to check out neighborhoods in person to narrow down the list.
b)communication with immigrant service organizations
c)Prepare a TO-DO list that we would helps us in first 30 days to settle easily on arrival to Canada
a)list of companies based on our past industry experience
After PR approval

Below is the short term plan once the PR application is approved.

3.Plan after final approval step of PR until landing in Canada:
a)Canadian job opportunity with current employer : Primary applicant has been working with
same employer since 2010 and has established significant network within organization. Once PR is approved, PA will be able to do tangible discussions for the possible transfer to Toronto office.
b)We live in a rental apartment so will need to inform landlord of the moving out date.
c)Most of the job portals ask for “Are you legally authorized to work in Canada?“. After PR is approved we will update the status in all the job portals and actively focus on job search.
4.Once we land in Canada:
a)Continue job search
b)Bank accounts
c)Keep ourselves occupied by doing some volunteer work.
e)Meanwhile learn French language to get adapted into local activities.
Long term vision
  • I intend to pursue my higher education in Data Science domain.
  • After working for 2-3 years in Canada, sponsored applicant intends to pursue MBA program from a top tier university in Canada.

I would strongly suggest you have a good read of the wiki on this subject - > 'how do I prove I intend to return to Canada' https://britishexpats.com/wiki/Spous...n_to_Canada.3F

This thread has an example that may be helpful: Sponsor question form IMM5540E
