Accompanying spouse and family members

Married people or those with dependent children who may wish to see their family members in Canada while studying has an option to do so. They can have their family members on the basis of their Study Visa application although, the Canadian immigration officers will examine study permit applications and allow it only if certain conditions are met. 

Canadian study permits are temporary residence permits, which means that the permit holders are required to demonstrate to the immigration officer that they will leave Canada at the expiry of the permit. If your family members are accompanying you in Canada, the visa officer may infer that you do not intend to leave Canada at the end of your study program. This may influence the visa officer's decision to accept or reject the permit.

All candidates must submit a statement of purpose/personal statement stating why they desire to study in Canada. This portion of the application allows the applicant to describe why they want their spouse and/or children to accompany them to Canada. The immigration officer makes the final decision on the permit, only after reading this statement of purpose. 

Please keep in mind that it is possible to apply for a study visa without the presence of family members, but then later you will be required to submit an amended application seeking permission for family members to join you in Canada. However, if the applicant does not follow the necessary steps, asking to modify an application in this manner can result in misrepresentation, including a five-year suspension from Canada.

Applicants must show that they have enough money to cover their living expenses throughout their first year of study. Those individuals whose families are accompanying them should be prepared to show additional finances to sustain their families. If an Indian student is accompanied by his/her spouse and/or dependent children, he/she should be aware of the implications for his/her housing and health insurance requirements.
