Family Sponsorship Income Level Eligibility
Eligibility of Family Sponsorship to Canada is based on the primary resident of Canada’s income level. We also use a term called LICO in assessing eligibility, which stands for Low-Income Cut-Offs in order to determine whether a person or family can afford to sponsor other members of their family that are currently overseas.
If you and your spouse (2 persons) want to sponsor your father and mother (2 persons), then your income according to the list below
2 (sponsoring persons) + 2(sponsored persons) = 4
So for 4 persons it is: $42,065
There is a Quebec income scale which is different, which you may need to consider if you live in that Province, however, for the rest of Canada, this list applies:
|Size of Family Unit||Minimum necessary income|
|1 person (the sponsor)||$22,637|
|More than 7 persons, for each additional person, add||$6,099|
If you are using this kit after December 31, 2012, contact our Call Centre for revised LICO figures.
