Default Montréal sponsorship

Hi there, this is my first post and I was wondering if you guys could help me out.
I'm 22, currently living in London and I'm planning on moving to Montréal to work as a VFX artist. So I'm aiming for a work visa and then possibly trying for PR.
I have a lot of family (Canadian residents) out there; but they are aunts, uncles and cousins - so does that qualify me for a possible family sponsorship? And if so would i need to pass the TEFaQ?

I'm applying through a few film companies for jobs in Montréal - and I thought I'd stand a much better chance of an offer if I said I'm already eligible to work out there. But if by some miracle I do get an offer through them - would I still need to pass the TEFaQ?

Thanks for any help, really is appreciated

Highly unlikely you will get family sponsorship read this link for eligibility
http://www.cic.gc.ca/english/immigra...-apply-who.asp

Your best bet is applying under the 2014 IEC programme. You can apply twice in total providing you meet the eligibility requirements.

Thank you so much! I'll look into the IEC then...
