Subject: SPONSORING MY HUSBAND
  Hi, I am a landed immigrant in canada through the skilled workers program. As at the time i completed my application forms for the immigrant visa, i was seperated from my husband. Shortly after i got the visa but before i came into canada, we reconciled. Now i want to sponsor him. However, due to the fact that i completed legally seperated in my forms, he was not assessed during the process. Please note also that we did not get a divorce and my marraige certificate is still valid.
If i want to sponsor him now, do i have to go back to divorce and then remarry him?
thanks.

You should have changed your skilled worker visa to include him before you landed. Because you landed as a single person, this means he is no longer a member of your family and can never be sponsored by you. In addition, if you file an application to sponsor him, you could be charged with misrepresentation and create problems for yourself as well (i.e. put your own PR status in jeopardy since you lied about your status to Canadian officials when you landed). Divorcing him and remarrying will not fix this.

I think anonymous is wrong. She did not apply or land as a single person - she applied and landed as legally separated. There is a BIG difference.

I believe she is eligible to sponsor him but they will need to show that they are truly reconciled, and that this is not being used just as a way for him to gain entry to Canada.

Please be careful when you throw around advice that could destroy someone´s life.

The KEY word is LEGALLY seperated. Only a very few countries has such a terminology and unless you have that he was never EXAMINED which is the key word and he is out of luck. IRPR 117 (9) (d)

It is late for me so go to www.cic.gc.ca and search operational maunals Overseas Processing then manual OP2 Family Class and read very carefully.
