How to Move to Canada With Your Family – It’s true that many Canadian immigration programs allow you to bring your loved ones along for the ride. Canada has a generous family reunification policy that allows permanent residents to sponsor their spouse, children, parents, and grandparents.
In many cases, family members of immigrants to Canada are allowed to come with them. However, this is not the case with all programs, so research the specifics of the one you’re interested in before applying.
Permanent immigration schemes like Fast Entry and corporate immigration do welcome families. Although it is typically determined on a case-by-case basis and is subject to the restrictions of the specific program, applicants for certain temporary visa programs for work and study may be eligible to bring their families with them.
Registration is required to enter the Fast Entry Pool.
You must have a:
- Certificate of Medical Fitness

- Money receipts
- Employment and income documentation, along with a passport photo, are acceptable forms of documentation to demonstrate previous employment and income.
