  okay, i need some help here with getting my b/f from the U.S to Canada as a permanent resident. he´s 20 and im going to be 18 in september, so i know i cant sponsor him until im 18. i want to sponsor him as common law or conjugal. i have a lot of questions, as this is all very confusing.

first of all, i only have a part time job right now, so im sure what i make annually wouldnt be sufficient enough funds to support my b/f financially to whoever processes my applications. but i will be getting a full time job so they´ll be able to see im able to support him financially. but if i want to apply sometime in september or october they´ll need to see my financial records for the past 12 months, but they´ll only see what ive made from my last job and maybe a short period of what i made on my current job. would they still approve it? im still young and only get paid $8/hr and dont work that often so i know thats not good. but we really love eachother and we want to start a life together as soon as possible. i also still live with my parents, and probably will be for quite some time. would that have any kind of effect on whether they´ll approve our applications?

sorry if any of this is confusing, but thats kind of what i am right now, ive never had to deal with anything like this before, so if you need clarification on anything, just tell me and ill try my best. any advice about what to do or anything like that is greatly appreciated!

thanks!

common law sponsorship means you have been living together for a minimum of 1 year. does not sound like this would work for you. Conjugal means you are a couple - you have combined your lives but there is some significant obstacle to you being married or living together - distance does not count.

something else to consider - when you sponsor someone, it is a legally binding agreement between YOU and the Canadian government. You are responsible for your guy for 3 years after he arrives - even if you go separate ways.

i thought for a conjugal relationship, it said you can apply if you have an immigration barrier...isnt it an immigration barrier because we cant stay at eachothers country legally for a certain amount of time? and i know what sponsoring means, i know we´re young but we are serious.

good immigration buddy of mine was living in Canada, her partner in the US. they applied for conjugal sponsorship and were turned down - why, nothing was stopping them from getting married.

I have not heard of a successful conjugal application on the forums I visit. Maybe someone else might have more encouraging news. You would also have to provide extensive proof of the genuine nature of your relationship. plane tickets, combined bank accounts, email and phone records.

This process is not for the faint of heart. I have no intention of discounting the serious nature of your relationship. Just offering you the truth about what is in front of you.

We have great sympathy for youy situation. We wish you the best of luck in the future.

First, and we know this is difficult, have some patience. Get some maturity and experiences first.

We think the CIC (Government of Canada) will look dimly on your application. Your age regretably is against you as well as your marital status and lack of extensive academic preparation, and work history, and no significant financial resources.

If you both love each other very much, what is the hurry?

We recommend your boy friend apply for a visitor´s visa or cometo visit you. The permitted length of stay is 6mnths from date of arrival.

Even if you were to marry, spousal and family reunification and work skills programs are competing for the 200,000 entries per yr., with 800,000 applications holding. This all comes at a time when our Prime Minister is not so supportive of immigration and his policy makers are recommending a reduction in the number of permitted approvals and less emphasis on skilled workers and more on family reunification.
In short, this is a vast difference from when we applied as a couple in 2001.

No matter, we wish you both good luck in your lives and may you be as blessed as we have been. For now, patience and have him visit you regularly. All else can follow later in its own season.

you may be assuming there is a similar program in Canada to the fiance sponsorship in the US. it was scrapped several years back. You may be better off having your guy sponsor you into the US, and then come back together after you have lived there together for a year.
