Quebec has increased their application fee for sponsorship, settlement, in 2020

According to the recent news from CIC, Quebec will be increasing its financial support requirements and application fees for 2020 to reflect changes in the province’s average Consumer Price Index.

The required settlement funds and financial capacity amounts for sponsors in Quebec will increase on January 1.

The new rate will affect the following scales:

  • The financial capacity of Quebec residents wishing to undertake family reunification within the group sponsorship program;
  • The financial requirements for foreign nationals wishing to study in Quebec and their accompanying family members;
  • The financial resources needed to assess the financial self-sufficiency of Quebec Skilled Worker Program candidates, self-employed workers, entrepreneurs in Streams One and Two, and the Quebec Experience Program.

In order to sponsor a family member for permanent residence in Quebec, individuals must demonstrate they have reached a specified gross income over one year.The income requirement varies depending of the number of family members who are in the sponsor’s household, and the number of people being sponsored.

Following is the chart to shows the required annual income of the sponsor based on the number of people in the family unit.

Size of Family Unit 2019 basic annual income required 2020 basic annual income required
1 person $23,855 $24,296
2 persons $32,241 $32,796
3 persons $39,806 $40,491
4 persons $45,782 $46,569
5 persons $50,953 $51,829
More than 5 persons, for each additional person, add $5,171 $5,260

In addition to this required basic annual income, sponsors will also need income to satisfy the needs of the people they are bringing into Quebec.
