Consumer Proposal and Immigration Sponsorship

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 Licensed Insolvency 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…).
