Default Financial Requirements - Sponsoring Parents

Hello Experts,

I am having trouble understanding the tables that dictate the financial requirements. Here are the details.

My wife and I (we both work) will be sponsoring my parents (myself as the primary applicant and my wife as the co-applicant). I am up to question 8 on the 'IMM1283E' document and am unsure of what value to enter? (We do not reside in Quebec).

In my family, it is only my wife and myself (we have no children nor any other dependents) and will only be sponsoring 2 individuals (my parents) to come to Canada.

I hope this information is adequate to get some assistance.

Many thanks in advance..

Mike...

If you have not sponsored anyone else, the LICO would be for 4 people, you,
your wife, and the parents.

Many thanks Pmm,

Sorry to have to bother you folks with this but I have another question:

If we both have jobs, and can get letters supporting that, and provide copies of payslips to the government which show that our combined annual income is greater than that indicated on the LICO requirements, can we begin the sponsorship process even though we may not have earnt that amount YET?

Ie. If I am correct, the LICO requirements for 4 people is about $35,000. Our combined salary per annum is about $80,000, but we've only been in our jobs for about 3 months. We are both employed on a permanent basis (Myself fulltime and my wife part time). So say to date we've earnt $20,000-$25,000 Gross combined, but CIC can see we've got permanent jobs with a salary greater than that of the LICO requirements, is that adequate? Or must we wait till we have earnt that amount?


Many thanks,

PS. Canada is great, I love it, so does my wife! No regrets (we both moved from Australia). Sometimes we pop down to the US for the weekend, but can't wait to get back to Canada.

You must earn required minimum income before you can apply to be approved as
a sponsor. Fact that you have decent job now is irrelevant as you may not
have that job tomorrow...
