Can I sponsor my child for Canadian Citizenship if he or she is not my biological child?

Yes, you may be able to sponsor a child for Canadian citizenship even if the child is not your biological child. However, the requirements for sponsorship depend on the specific situation.

If the child is legally adopted by you, you can sponsor the child for Canadian citizenship as your adopted child. In this case, the child would be considered your dependent and you would need to meet the eligibility criteria for sponsoring a dependent.

If the child is not legally adopted by you but you have legal guardianship or custody of the child, you may be able to sponsor the child for Canadian citizenship as your dependent. However, you would need to provide evidence of your legal relationship with the child and meet the eligibility criteria for sponsoring a dependent.

If the child is not your adopted child and you do not have legal guardianship or custody of the child, you may not be able to sponsor the child for Canadian citizenship. However, the child may be eligible to apply for Canadian citizenship through other means, such as through a parent or grandparent who is a Canadian citizen. It’s important to consult with a qualified immigration lawyer or a registered immigration consultant to determine your options for sponsoring a child for Canadian citizenship.
