Default Canada Says!!

Why on the Canadian Immigration web site does it say
Canada know how important it is to help families to come reunite.
Canada will let you sponsor ALL other family members except the most important Family members Sons, Daughters. Can someone explain - did i miss read it.:curse:

You can sponsor them through many of the provinces PNP programmes though don't forget.

I guess that CIC just assume that if your children are young enough they'll go to Canada with you, and if they're older and you've left them in the UK then they're leaving independent lives anyway.

I can see your point but I do also see CIC's - a parent of an immigrant may be elderly or incapacitated, and therefore reliant physically and financially on the immigrant who is moving abroad. Hence they give the provision to move that parent to be with you.

I'm assuming you want to sponsor an adult child? What province are you in?

We are in Alberta, my 2 sons came for a visit got offered jobs so are on work permits BUT unfortunatley the company has layed All the workforce off because of these bad times. They are trying to get jobs, been offered jobs but once they now its work permit route they all say the same too long dont want the hassle - cant blame them really, even though we are willing to help,

Are you PR's and if so, how long have you been so for?

Just adding to your first comment, if a parent was elderly or incapacitated then how would they get through the strict medical, i have known people refused residency for a minor thing. I tell you this Canadian immigration is a narrow very narrow lane they make out that they are doing loads to get people here but they are not. Like i say the Canadian immigration stinks.

The medical's not that strict! They certainly wouldn't reject somebody just because they're elderly.

And if you've been PR's for a year then at least you've only got another year until you can sponsor your sons under Alberta PNP so that's good. If they're under 30 could they apply for Bunac? Then that would give them another year, and after that you can start the sponsorship process for them.

I thought there is a family program for Alberta PNP, but I could be wrong.

Think you will find that alot of people may disagree with you on that, i know someone who was refused because of blood pressure, all be it he got it under control but took him another 2 years before he was allowed PR
