Many thanks, did she move to Canada from the UK? How was the sponsorship process?
She moved from Ireland, but it’s pretty much the same process - she had to apply to the Canadian high commission in London.
The first 2-3 months they determine the eligibility of the sponsor (Canadian), and then they process your immigration application.
They’re looking to see that the Canadian hasn’t sponsored other people before and reneged on their obligations. For you, they’re looking to test the genuineness of the marriage ie you will need to share personal information like pictures, chat logs, emails, etc to demonstrate that yours is not a “marriage of convenience”. Finally you will have to do a full medical in the UK by a physician approved by the govt of Canada.
The process is a bit involved, but not impossible. It just takes long, so you want to make sure you prepare a strong application to begin with.
