Sibling Sponsorship in Quebec

Reunite Families, Strengthen Quebec: Support Family Sponsorship!

This petition urges the Quebec government to create a pathway for family reunification.

Reunite Families, Strengthen Quebec: Support Family Sponsorship!
Even as a Canadian, do you miss having close family by your side?

Many newcomers call Quebec home, but their joy can be incomplete when siblings or cousins are separated by immigration barriers. Family reunification is a core human value, and Quebec’s immigration system can be even stronger by supporting it.

  1. Stronger Families, Stronger Quebec: When families are together, they build stronger support networks and integrate more quickly into Quebec society.
  2. French Language and Cultural Integration: Close family ties encourage newcomers to learn French and embrace Quebec’s culture more easily.
  3. Economic Benefits: Family reunification contributes to Quebec’s economic growth as newcomers establish businesses and contribute to the workforce.
To ensure that sponsors are well integrated and capable of assisting newcomers, we suggest the following criteria:
  • Residency Requirement: The sponsor must have resided in Quebec for the last five years and been physically present for at least four of those years.
  • Employment History: The sponsor must have been employed for at least three of the past five years.
  • Commitment: The sponsor must commit to actively supporting the newcomer for a period of one year.
  • French Language Proficiency: The sponsor must demonstrate an advanced level of French proficiency (level 7 in all four skills based on an official language test) within the last 12 months prior to the application date.
  • Financial Stability: The sponsor must meet a certain financial income threshold for the last year, demonstrating financial stability.
Candidates would be assessed using the same scoring system as the Quebec Skilled Workers Program, with similar eliminatory conditions tailored to Quebec’s immigration priorities and goals.

Benefits:

  • Enhanced Integration: Family support can significantly improve the integration process, helping newcomers adapt more quickly to the social, cultural, and economic environment of Quebec.
  • Preservation of the French Language: By ensuring that sponsors are proficient in French, this program supports the government’s goal of maintaining and promoting the French language.
  • Social Cohesion: Facilitating the immigration of individuals who have family in Quebec fosters social cohesion and community support, which are crucial for a harmonious society

Together, we can build a more welcoming and inclusive Quebec for all!
