Other Relatives

There are few more categories of relatives other than immediate family members, who can be sponsored by a Canadian citizen or a Permanent resident. Only under certain terms and conditions you can be qualified as a sponsor.
You can think of sponsoring:

      • A mother or father
      • Brother or sister

And, you do not have any one of the relatives mentioned above who:
