You as sponsor have to meet the financial requirement, and if you don't, visa will be denied. Having children won't change things, unless you get carer's allowance, or if you receive certain disability-related benefit.
He can try to come over in his own right, such as study or sponsored work, or if he qualifies for ancestry visa with a UK-born grandparent. If he is under 30, he can get two-year Tier 5 youth mobility scheme visa, which can be changed into spouse leave if you jointly meet the financial requirement.

If you don't meet the financial requirement to sponsor your Canadian partner to the UK, the only other way for him to come over and stay in the UK is for him to join the British Armed Forces as a Commonwealth citizen. A member of the British Armed Forces is mostly exempted from UK immigration control.
