I Was Refused to Sponsor My Spouse in Canada from Philadelphia in 2012

Canada’s Spousal Sponsorship program offers Canadian permanent residents and Canadian citizens the opportunity to bring their loved ones to Canada. In some cases, they can also sponsor close relatives to Canada in addition to spouses. 

This type of immigration to Canada is called Family Class Immigration, and it is a way for people to obtain permanent residency in Canada.

However, applying for spousal sponsorship to bring your spouse, conjugal partner or common-law spouse to Canada is not easy. Many of these types of Canadian immigration applications are denied every year.

Why was my application denied?

Finding out why your application was denied is very important when considering your options.

There are many different reasons your spousal sponsorship application could be denied in Canada, including:

1. You did not prove to the Government of Canada that you have enough money to financially support your spouse or their dependants.

2. The Government of Canada does not believe that your marriage to your spouse is legitimate and suspects that your application is for fraudulent purposes.

3. You are not qualified to sponsor a spouse in Canada, meaning that you are in prison, under a removal order (facing deportation from Canada) or are bankrupt.

However, there is a very real possibility you made an error on your initial spousal sponsorship application or did not include all of the applicable information.
