Imagine how it would feel being separated from your husband, wife or common-law partner for one, two or up to ten years? This is the reality for many immigrant spouses in Canada who have had to leave their families behind to settle in a safe, stable and peaceful country. Most of the time, they must sacrifice for their families because their own country was not stable or safe.
No children should ever have to be away from their parent. This is our firm belief at Mendez Immigration Services. Our Licensed Consultant personally knows what it’s like to be away from her parents for many years. After immigrating to Canada, 5 years had to pass before she saw her parents again. And she has first-hand knowledge of the negative impact separation can have on a child.
Sponsoring your parents or grandparents is an opportunity Canada provides to Canadian citizens and permanent residents only. Through this program, permanent residence is given to the sponsored parent or grandparent, and the sponsor in Canada undertakes to provide financial support. Over the years, the application process has evolved due to the high number of applications backlogged.
