Section 117(1) h of the Immigration and Refugee Protection Regulations allows the sponsorship of a family member for Permanent Residents and Canadian citizens who have no family members in or outside Canada who are Permanent Residents or Canadian citizens. This is an exceptional category, and you must ensure you meet the specific requirements. You must not have any of the following family members in or outside Canada who are Permanent Residents or Canadian citizens to qualify under this category often called “the Last Remaining Relative in Canada”:

  • spouse;
  • common law partner;
  • conjugal partner;
  • child;
  • mother or father;
  • brother or sister;
  • aunt or uncle;
  • niece of the nephew;
  • grandmother or grandfather.
