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 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?
