|Subject: Sponsorship 2
||I am trying to get my brother to come here to Canada but his vistor visa was rejected. Is it possible to bring him here as a P Resident, based on the fact that i have no other family member with me here in Canada?
I got one reply saying that i am allowed one member if i have none with me. Does that mean that i get to have one family member if i have none with me in Canada or i have none anywhere? I am not very clear on this subject, because i have no family member living in Canada, and would like to get my brother over here.
Also is it possible to apply for such thing without a lawyer?

Please take a little bid time and read thru
You can sponsor relatives or family members from abroad if they are:
spouses, common-law or conjugal partners 16 years of age or older;
parents and grandparents;
dependent children, including adopted children;
children under 18 years of age whom you intend to adopt;
children under guardianship;
brothers, sisters, nephews, nieces or grandchildren who are orphans; under the age of 18 and not married or in a common-law relationship; or
you may also sponsor one relative of any age if you do not have an aunt, uncle or family member from the list above who you could sponsor or who is already a Canadian citizen, Indian or permanent resident.
A son or daughter is dependent when the child:
is under the age of 22 and does not have a spouse or common-law partner;
is a full time student and is substantially dependent on a parent for financial support since before the age of 22, or since becoming a spouse or common-law partner (if this happened before age 22); or
is financially dependent on a parent since before the age of 22 because of a disability.
I am pretty sure if you are qualied from what here said, you don´t have to hire lawyer
