Default Sponsorship

Dear Friends:

My cousin is here in India. He is PR of Canada.
I have to get his sponsorship. To sponsor me he needs to make
notarized statement. He is here in India 3-4 months.
I need the affidavit of support right now.

Will it work to get his statement verified by Indian Notary. He has
his PR Card with him.
Will it work in interview.
Plz advice me.

Thanks in advance.

He may not even be entitled to sponsor you. At present from what I
understand, cousins do not qualify under family class. However, the CIC web
site (http://www.cic.gc.ca) says a resident of Canada can "...sponsor one
relative of any age if you do not have an aunt, uncle or family member from
the list above who you could sponsor or who is already a Canadian citizen,
Indian or permanent resident", so maybe there's a possibility.

To sponsor you your husband will have to return to Canada and apply from
there. He cannot sponsor you unless he is living and physically present in
Canada.

The Regulations use the term, "resides" for a sponsor. They do not use the
term (as in 28. of the Act; or 47. of the Regulations) "physically present".

In fact the Act specifically uses the term "physically present" when it
discusses the requirements for maintaining Permanent Resident status:

28. (1) A permanent resident must comply with a residency obligation with
respect to every five-year period.
2) The following provisions govern the residency obligation under subsection
(1):
(a) a permanent resident complies with the residency obligation with respect
to a five-year period if, on each of a total of at least 730 days in that
five-year period, they are
(i) physically present in Canada,

This distinction is clarified in the section on posting guarantees in the
Regulations, which uses specific terms for "residing" and being "physically
present" in Canada when it discusses the requirements for posting a
guarantee. This shows very clearly that "residing" and being "physically
present" are not considered to be the same thing. It is obviously, therefore
possible to "reside" in Canada and not be "physically present" according to
the use of the terms in the Act and the Regulations.

47. (1) A person who pays a deposit or posts a guarantee
(a) must not have signed or co-signed another guarantee that is in default;
and
(b) must have the capacity to contract in the province where the deposit is
paid or the guarantee is posted.
Requirements if guarantee posted
(2) A person who posts a guarantee must
(a) be a Canadian citizen or a permanent resident, physically present and
residing in Canada;

The requirements for a sponsor in the Regulations do not say anything about
a required physical presence in Canada for the duration of the processing of
the Application:

130. (1) Subject to subsection (2), a sponsor, for the purpose of sponsoring
a foreign national who makes an application for a permanent resident visa as
a member of the family class or an application to remain in Canada as a
member of the spouse or common-law partner in Canada class under subsection
13(1) of the Act, must be a Canadian citizen or permanent resident who
(a) is at least 18 years of age;
(b) resides in Canada; and

There is nothing in 130 that says "physically present" and since elsewhere
in the Act (28.) and the Regulations (47.) the term "physically present" is
used one can only assume that residing is sufficicient for sponsorship.

AN interesting point. My question to you is: WHat evidence must you have to show that you reside in Canada without being physically present? A house in your name? Bank accounts? A job? Obviously the latter would be impossible because you will not be there to attend the job.

My girlfriend is a PR and is looking to sponsor me, but she lives with me at mo in England, what can she do to show she resides in Canada so that she doesn't have to be away from me whilst sponsoring, me going there is out of the question as we couldn't afford for me not to work.

A job and address with light bills and tax info would be best.

A job is not required (you might be retired, or wealthy). However the
following would be a good start ...

In your name, in Canada, should be an address where you pay rent or a
mortgage and which contains a significant number of your possessions,
photographs, memorabilia and documents.

In Canada should be such things as a car, insurance policies on the car AND
on your residence, bank accounts, credit cards, tax assessments, income tax
documents, driver's license, phone bills, cell phone accounts, utility bills
(light and heat, if separate from rent) and similar indicators of residence.

My partner would be intending to live with her parents in calgary whilst she sponsored me. Therefore none of the documents regarding housing would apply. She doesn't have a drivers licence or a car. She cannot get a canadian credit card until she lived there a year. So i guess with all that in mind, we're pretty much buggered.
