Listing and including family members in the application

On an application for permanent resident status, applicants must list:

  • their spouse or common law partner and
  • any dependent children.

The applicant can then choose whether or not to include them in the application. These family members must be listed, even if they are not being included in the application for permanent residence. Applicants who do not list these family members will not have the right to sponsor them to come to Canada later.
