Sponsor Family - brother and his family


New Member
I am a citizen , married with 3 dependent children. I want to sponsor my brother and his family from the Philippines. My mother now lives in Philippines after staying in USA as US immigrant.
She does not intend to migrate any longer in either USA or here in Canada. So I don't have any other relative that I can sponsor. Will CIC consider my sponsorship for my brother?

In most cases you cannot sponsor a sibling. There are a few provinces where you can sponsor a relative if you own a business and can employ them, but I believe it's only two or three provinces.
