I am applying to immigrate to Canada. It would be great if I could take my brother along with me. I am single. Can I take my brother along with me? Would he be considred family?
A sibling does not count. Here's the list:
These family members can come with you:
- your spouse or common-law partner,
- your dependent child,
- your spouse or common-law partner’s dependent child, and
- a dependent child of a dependent child.
These family members can’t come with you:
- your parents,
- brother or sister,
- uncle or aunt,
- nephew or niece, or
- other relatives.
You may be able to sponsor them after you immigrate to Canada.
After you become a permanent resident or citizen, you would only be able to sponsor your brother if he's under 18, orphaned, and not married/partnered/etc.
