Default Sponsoring an overseas born child

Hi,

My wife and myself are Canadian PRs (got PR in 2008). We've recently moved to Canada permanently. Our 2 year old child who was born in Australia (Australian citizen) accompanied us to Canada as a visitor since he does not need a visa to enter Canada.

Question is how can we sponsor him?

Can some please explain in detail since I could not find any information on CIC website for this. If someone has been in the similar situation, any idea how long the process takes?

Regards,
Karawan

1. See: http://www.cic.gc.ca/english/informa...cations/fc.asp
2. The child has to sponsored "out of Canada" If the child was admitted to Canada for a year, you can select the processing office as Buffalo when you send the sponsorship and application to Mississauga. Otherwise it will be Sydney Australia.
3. Probably around 4 months for the processing as there is a minimal medical and no security/background/interview .
