Hi,
I am from Egypt and I have two children from a previous Egyptian spouse. Four years ago I met my current Canadian husband.( he is Egyptian but got the Canadian citizenship more than 15 years ago. Now he wants to sponsor me and my two kids. but the problem that his annual income doesnt fit 4 persons according to the minimum low income requirements ... barely it would cover two persons only . can he still sponsor us ? or the application is likely to be refused. and if we find that the only way is to sponsor me alone , will we be eligible later on after getting my PR to sponsor my kids ? and what is going to be needed then ?

thank you.

The income requirement is for sponsoring parents, not spouses and children. But it can be used as a rough guide as to what IRCC may deem unacceptable for a spouse and children.

If you're worried the application will be rejected due to lack of funds, and there's nobody he can get to help him, then yes, in theory, you can sponsor your kids later. They have to be young enough. And you'll have to include them in this application as non-accompanying children so IRCC knows they exist for when you want to sponsor them.

Does anybody know if any special requirements apply to my future wife to get the work permit in Canada if I got acquainted with her at the dating site online https://ladadate.com/ukrainian-brides. Due to coronavirus I have limited mobility and cannot go to the government body to inquire myself. I don't know if the rules differ for the dating sites or not, but I remember that when I passed the border with my bride for the first time, the immigration officer was asking a lot of questions where exactly we met. Thanks very much in advance.

There are no specific rules regarding dating sites. For sponsorship, you have to show the relationship is genuine. What "genuine" means is up to the person assessing your application, but proof usually entails evidence of the relationship such as text messages/emails, pictures of you together, proof of travel together, and proof of family and friends attending your wedding (as well as testimonies from friends about your relationship).
