Consumer Proposal and Immigration Sponsorship

November 29th, 2009 by Questions

I have been accepted to sponsor my wife to become a Permanent Resident in Canada, and I understand that this acceptance would be reversed and my wife`s application would be rejected if I filed for bankruptcy.

Could I be considered in violation of my sponsorship agreement if I enter into a consumer proposal? While it is not officially bankruptcy, it is approved by the courts and managed by bankruptcy trustees, and could be viewed by Citizenship and Immigration Canada (CIC) as a declaration of insolvency. Are you aware of any cases where a consumer proposal has affected a person`s ability to sponsor a spousal immigrant?

You need to direct this question to Immigration Canada – they are the people that can tell you how your sponsorship status may be affected if you file a proposal. 9I don’t think it will be, but I am not an immigration lawyer so you’d better ask Canada Immigration…).
