The applications is downloaded from online, but you need to fill it out on your computer, print it off, sign and then submit it together with your relationship evidence and other documentation required.

There are 2 different application packages, one for "inland" and one for "outland" and they are sent to 2 different places.

"outland" application is here: http://www.cic.gc.ca/english/informa...cations/fc.asp

The only reason you would go to the Embassy would be if required for interview or to drop off your passport.

As Siouxie said, you don't submit it online.

But you won't find many airlines that will let you board the plane with a single ticket and no visa, so you'd have to get a return anyway.

Siouxie has already given you the link to the relevant section of the CIC website, if you read that you'll see it tells you to post it to Mississauga.

Download the forms and guide, and that will tell you what you need to complete and where to send it.

When you sponsor a spouse, common-law or conjugal partner, or dependent children to become permanent residents of Canada, you must promise to support them financially. Therefore, you have to meet certain income requirements. If you have previously sponsored relatives to come to Canada and they have later turned to the government for financial assistance, you may not be allowed to sponsor another person. Sponsorship is a big commitment, so you must take this obligation seriously.

If I'm not mistaken, all that means is that as the sponsor, you have to have a job or otherwise means to financially support your spouse, you must not be on welfare, and you must not have sponsored someone in the past who later claimed welfare.

There's no minimum income requirement, just that as the sponsor you have the means to support someone else (that's why they ask for a letter of employment and copies of your pay slips - just to see that you have the means to support).

EXACTLY the sponsor has to meet certain income requirements. All I was saying to the poster was is the sponsor likely to be approved as one.
The clue was certain INCOME REQUIREMENT as per the link.

I'm only guessing - when I read the original question it sounded like "What is the minimum income required", which usually means that the answer is "You have to have at least $15,000 to sponsor", and THAT isn't correct.

You could be a stay-at-home husband/wife and be sponsoring your partner, so you have no "income", but you could have a decent amount in your savings and thus you get approved as the sponsor...

Basically just don't be on welfare, and don't have sponsored someone in the past who claimed welfare, and it should be fine.

I don't think you understand how the sponsorship process works. I suggest you read the Wiki and CIC's "The Immigrant's Guide - Family Class Sponsorship" to understand the process.

You fill out all the forms for both stages at the same time, if you want to be processed Outland then you fill out the Outland form s (ALL of them - there are about 10 or so), send them to CPC-M, they do Stage 1, and forward the WHOLE package to London to process (stage 2).

What a great way to say 'oh gosh, apologies for giving out incorrect info'.

That paragraph is referring to all sorts of different sponsorship scenarios, and so is just a general overview.

If you want to get specific, then you could look at page 6 of the guide which says "income requirement applies only when dependent children who have dependent children of their own are included on the application" or the Regulations which say "Exception to minimum necessary income:

(4) Paragraph (1)(j) does not apply if the sponsored person is
(a) the sponsor's spouse, common-law partner or conjugal partner and has no dependent children;
(b) the sponsor's spouse, common-law partner or conjugal partner and has a dependent child who has no dependent children; or
(c) a dependent child of the sponsor who has no dependent children or a person referred to in paragraph 117(1)(g)"


Or perhaps the Financial Evaluation bit of the Sponsors guide which says "If you are sponsoring a person other than your spouse, common-law or conjugal partner who has no family members, or your spouse, common-law or conjugal partner who has dependent children who have no dependent children of their own blah blah"

No, there isn't. You don't seem to be understanding, but you do NOT fill it out online! So you'd include any addition pieces of paper when you POST it.
