Default Spousal sponsorship


I have sponsored my parents 12 years ago in 1990. Sponsorship length was 10
years. Upon their arrival in Canada I was able to support them for the first
3 years i.e. till 1993. Then I was unable to continue support due to my
unemployment and my parents had to turn to welfare and family benefits for
Now I am married and would like to bring my spouse to Canada, but I was told
in order to sponsor my spouse I have to pay back all the financial support
received by my parents from government during past 8 years in full. This
sums up to a substantial amount of money and I am not able to pay this
amount, what are my options.

Thanks for help

yep there isnt much you can do really. you defaulted on a contractual
obligation with the government. Taking a sponsorship isnt just a token
gesture, so how can they accept another sponsorshi pcontract with you if you
didnt fulfill the old one and the new law is more strict on making people
fulfill it.
Possibly there is some H&C route as it is yoru spouse i am not sure.
