I am often contacted by parents who are barred / banned from sponsoring their children because they did not declare their children to immigration Canada or did not have the child medically examined. These parents, mainly mothers are shocked that they are now permanent separated from their children as they came to Canada to provide a better life for their children. The main reasons they shared are they lacked the money to get the medical examination done at they time they were coming to Canada but thought they could do it later, they did not know that they could never sponsor the child later if they did not declare them or have them examined. Many thought or were advised that once they come to Canada and start working they will have the finances and opportunities to sponsor their children only to find that they cannot ever do so.
Thankfully, Immigration Canada recently put in place a short term pilot program to allow some parents who were barred / banned from sponsoring their children an opportunity to now sponsor them until Immigration Canada ends the program or the end of the pilot period whichever comes first.
When anyone applies for Canada permanent residency, family members such as children must be declared and examined, if not, these family members cannot be sponsored later.
Currently, the consequence for failing to have a non-accompanying family member examined is a lifetime bar / ban on being able to sponsor that family member, as per paragraphs 117(9)(d) and 125(1)(d) of the Immigration and Refugee Protection Regulations (the Regulations).
As of September 2019, Immigration Canada two-year pilot project allows parents in this position to now be able to sponsor their children. Immigration Canada states that “as with all public policies, this public policy may be cancelled at any time” so contact us immediately to start the process if this applies to you.
