Hello,

I am a permanent resident.

I just wanted to know if I can sponsor my 16 year old sister to come and live with me.

Our dad died in 2005 and her mom is struggling to maintain her by herself.

Please confirm. thanks,

1. No, you can't sponsor your sister as she is not an orphan.

Again contact the immigration department and clarify. There are certain cases where they may allow people to sponsor certain family members.
