Can my family accompany me to Canada while I study?
Canada remains a popular destination for many around the world who are looking to emigrate. For many people who are unable to come to Canada through the Express Entry-managed or the provincial nominee programs due to factors such as age or level of education, studying in Canada remains a viable option.
However, for a lot of people who are married, the option of studying in Canada could sometime be complicated. A key question that many people in this situation often ask is if they can bring their family with them to Canada while thy pursue studies. The short answer to this question is ‘yes.’
According to the Immigration and Refugee Protection Act, the main law governing Canada’s immigration system, family reunification is an important objective of Canada’s immigration system. As such, a student who is married or in a common-law relationship or who is a single parent may apply to come to Canada with his or her family, which is defined as a spouse and/or dependent children.
Although Canada’s immigration system encourages family reunification in theory, in reality,study permit applications that include family members can sometime be quite challenging. When such applications are not done properly, they are often refused.
Given the high refusal rate of study permit applications that include families, it is highly advised that you consult with an expert who can advise you appropriately if you are contemplating bringing your family with you to Canada while you study. At Crest Immigration Services Inc., we have successfully handled many such applications, and we will be able to put our experience and expertise at your disposal. For example, in the last two months, we have successfully secured study permit for three clients (two from Nigeria and one from South Africa).
In the case of our client from South Africa, she will be studying for a 2-year diploma at Humber College in Ontario. She has already arrived in Canada with her husband and three children, in preparation for the Fall semester.
For our two clients from Nigeria, each of them is coming to Canada with their spouses and their children as well. They are both coming to schools in Alberta.
In all of this, the key is to ensure that the application is solid enough, including ensuring that the applicant demonstrates enough funds to cover tuition and living expenses for at least one full academic year. Apart from sufficient proof of funds, the applicant and his/her family must also demonstrate strong ties to their home country. There are other important things to consider as well and that is why it is important to consult an experienced Regulated Canadian Immigration Consultant.
