Default family sponsorhip-orphaned brother /sister

Hello Experts;
I am a permenant resident in Canada. I am in the process of sponsoring my brother who is 38 years old. But in the CIC website,it says that you can only sponsor an orphaned brother or sister. Is the definition of an orphan brother or sister is the person who has no father or mother ?
Please clarify
Thank you in advance for your assistance
Thank you

You cannot sponsor brother, unless he is under 18, unmarried and orpaned (both parents deceased).

There is also an option to sponsor one relative - only if sponsor has no spouse, children or other close relatives in Canada and nobody else abroad who may be sponsored as family class member.
