  Same Sex - Equal Rights


Spouses or common-law partners of Canadian citizens and permanent residents, regardless of status, are able to apply for permanent residence while remaining in Canada.

Same-sex marriage is legal in Canada. Spousal, common law, and conjugal same-sex partner applications are treated and processed in the same manner. Immigration Canada evaluates all relationships for their genuineness.

Canada differs from most other nations by offering same-sex and opposite-sex couples equal rights for immigration.

Both marriage and common-law partnerships (opposite-sex and same-sex) are legally recognized in Canada for purposes of federal benefits and obligations (Modernization of Benefits and Obligations Act, June 2000). Canadian Immigration legislation conforms to this law.

Common-law and married same-sex couples can apply for Permanent Residence Status in Canada, as well as Canadian citizens and Permanent Residents can sponsor their same-sex partners. In all cases meeting eligibility criteria applies.
