Subject: sponsoring mother and sister
My mother and sister are in Asia. I live in Canada and I am permanent resident. My sister is dependent and she is 30. I wonder what would be the best way to sponsor them to come to Canada not only for a visit but to come to stay here.
I understand that I can sponsor my mother without big difficulties but I don?t know how will it go with my sister.

Thank you for your time responding and any help would be greatly appreciated.

Quoting Dennis C. from one of previously asked questions:
While there are many factors you will need to consider prior to expending resources on a sponsorship application, the first thing to determine is whether you are eligible to sponsor these two family members. Most significant to deterimining eligibility is the minimum required income you will need to prove to CIC when making your application. The specific amount is based upon the number of "dependants" you have (including those living with you now), but may also include the income of a "co-signer".

I recommend that you visit http://www.cic.gc.ca/english/irpa/fs-family.html to learn more about the Family Class program, and then download the forms and guide books for further insight. If you are interested in hiring a professional to assist you, drop me a note, and I will be happy to recommend a good service provider (please note that, while I am an immigration advisor, I do not handle Family Class files; rather, I focus exclusively on Skilled Workers).
End Quote.

Hope this helps,

No Problems sponsoring yours (in reply to: sponsoring mother and sister)
I am in similar situation and I can almost guarantee you that you should have no problems sponsoring your mother and sister as long as you have income that they are requireing. Not sure exactly how much you need but it is not something huge, it is quite standard. Again, everything is relative.
Good luck
