Default Support for a Sponsored Relative

taken from the website:

"When you sponsor a relative or family member to become a permanent resident
of Canada, you must promise to support that person and accompanying family
members for a period of three to 10 years, depending on their age and
relationship to you."

What does it mean? They cannot get any support from the
goverment like welfare or hospitalizations for a period of time?

Sponsored family members may get welfare if badly needed but if it happens
during the time of undertaking agreement then any amount given to them will be
charged to the sponsor who will have to repay it to the government.

Pretty much - If you read the section "what does it mean to sponsor?" in the guidelines you will see it says "if payments from a federal...program are made during the validity period of the undertaking to the person you are sponsoring or his or her family members, you - will be considered to be in default of your obligations - may have to repay to the government...- will not be allowed to sponsor other members for the family class until you have reimbursed..."

Further on it also says "you are ineligible to sponsor if you are in receipt of social assistance for a reason other than disability"

Hope that clarifies for you.

Just to add from the original post it doesnt cover healthcare, your
sposnored relative is allowed to use provincial healthcare and it isnt yoru
responsibility. I think also if they work and qualify they can claim EI if
they are made redundant.
