Adopted Child Sponsorship

Adopted Child Sponsorship

The Canadian government wants to keep families together, and that’s why they are promoting processes that help immigrants and their families stay together in the country. Canadian citizens and permanent residents have the opportunity to bring their adopted children to Canada. This can be done under the Family Sponsorship Program.

The sponsor must be a Canadian citizen or a permanent resident. They must reside in the country, must be 18 years of age and above. You are eligible to sponsor an adopted child if you satisfy the following conditions:

  • You have no criminal record
  • You are not under any removal order
  • You do not receive any social assistance
  • You have not been convicted of any kind of sexual offense
  • You have been a permanent resident for over five years
  • You have no child support payments pending against you
  • You are not in prison or convicted

Eligibility for Adopted Child Sponsorship:

To be eligible for this program, the following conditions must be fulfilled:

  • Both the sponsor and the sponsored individual must prove their relationship through adoption.
  • If adoption is in the final phase, the sponsor can still apply for sponsorship until the adoption process is completed.
  • The Canadian citizen/permanent resident sponsor and the adopted child must be approved to receive a visa by the Immigration, Refugee, and Citizenship Canada (IRCC).
  • The child can be adopted inside or outside of Canada.
  • The sponsor must be able to prove they can take care of the adopted child. This must be done by providing proof that they can provide food, shelter, clothing, health, etc.
  • The sponsor must have become a permanent residence at least five years ago.
  • The sponsored person must be at least 16 years old.

How to Apply Sponsorship Application of Adopted Child:

To apply for sponsorship of a dependent or adopted child, you must take the following steps:

The first step is to fill out the application form. Next, collect all relevant documents. They include:

  • Proof of adoption and dependency
  • Clean criminal record and relevant police certificates
  • Medical certificates for both sponsor and the adopted child
  • Income statements that prove you can financially support the adopted child
  • Photos and fingerprints of sponsor and child
  • If below 18 years of age, the birth certificate must be provided
  • Translation documents if documents not in English/French, including true copies certification
  • Payment of processing fees
  • Submission of application

Post Submission 

The visa office will assess the application and call for an interview if needed. They may also ask for more details and documents. If satisfied with the details, they will ask for the passport of both the sponsor and the child. They will take a closer look at your relationship with the adopted child, the educational history of the child, and the reasons for immigration. They will also look at the financial condition of the sponsor.

The adopted sponsored child will receive Canadian permanent residence if your application is approved. They will be allowed to study and work in Canada. They will also enjoy all the rights of a permanent resident of Canada.

It is possible that your application may be rejected if you do not meet the requirements that the immigration is looking for. You will get a letter stating the reasons why your application got rejected. Your application may also get rejected if you provide incorrect or fraudulent information.
