How much income do I need to sponsor my parents and grandparents?
Note: these are the minimum income numbers for people who applied in 2019. We’ll update them with the numbers for 2020 in the near future.
You, the sponsor (and your co-signer, if applicable) must prove that you have enough income to support all the persons you’ll be financially responsible for, including yourself, once you become a sponsor.
If you’re invited to apply, you’ll have to provide proof that you meet the income requirements for each of the 3 taxation years right before the date of your application.
The following table applies to residents of all provinces except Quebec. If you live in Quebec, the Quebec ministry in charge of immigration will assess your income.
|Total number of persons you would be responsible for||Minimum income required for the 3 taxation years right before the date of your application|
|2018Footnote 1||2017Footnote 1||2016Footnote 1||2015Footnote 1|
|If more than 7 persons, for each additional person, add:||$8,740||$8,616||$8,521||$8,358|
