To the best of my knowledge this should not apply to you. As a Canadian citizen you can return to Canada at any time and bring your partner with you. May I ask where you read your information?

Hi missninetyukuk

I'm Canadian and in 2003/04, I sponsored my husband from Scotland. Our application was inland, however you can also sponsor a family member from outside of Canada. Although the family applications generally take approximately 7 months to completion... ours was processed the same year that the PR cards were introduced & as a result, we waited almost 13 months! eeeek!

I did submit documentation regarding my earnings, however, I've been told that although this information is taken into account, it isn't the deciding factor in determining eligibility. You will be responsible for your husband's care for 3 years and will be accountable for any expenses incurred during that time. For instance, if for some reason your husband applied to receive welfare payments, the government would request that money back from you.

I don't know if you've read the CIC website pertaining to Family sponsorship, so I'll include the link for you....

Sponsoring your family: Spouses and dependent children


Wishing you a speedy application!
