Welcome to www.GayImmigration.ca

Welcome to Canada. We have some of the world's most gay friendly laws and protections. Our Supreme Court has interpreted the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms in our Constitution to protect us from discrimination. Canadian immigration law and regulations were written entirely gender neutral.

A Canadian or Canadian Permanent Resident can sponsor their same sex spouse (legally married somewhere in the world), common-law partner (Have lived with your partner for at least a year, does not matter where. There are exceptions for short and temporary breaks and also deemed common-law. You might already be common-law!) or Conjugal Partner (in a relationship for at least a year but not married and for reasons beyond your control have not been able to become common-law) in a Family Class sponsorship application on the basis of your gay relationship.

A Canadian or Canadian Permanent Resident and their gay spouse or common-law partner may co-sign a sponsorship of their parents or grand parents. These sponsorship applications include the dependents of the person being sponsored. Bring your family together to live free and proud in Canada.

In an Economic Class (Skilled Worker, Canadian Experience Class, Self-Employed, Investor or Entrepreneur) application your sexuality is not relevant to the success of your application. If you are legally married or in a common-law relationship you MUST include him on your application. These applications include your dependents and those of your spouse or common-law partner. We have openly gay politicians, millionaires, hairdressers, entertainers, ministers, athletes, immigration consultants, etc. ...come join us.

If you are in, or plan to come to Canada as a student or foreign worker, you may be able to get a work permit for your spouse or common-law partner so you can come here together.

About Us (Peter Bernier)

I have been helping gay couples with immigration to Canada since 1994 when we got my partner his permanent residence. He has now become a Canadian citizen and we recently celebrated our 19th anniversary. I am one of Canada's most experienced experts on Canadian immigration for gays. I am a member of the Immigration Consultants of Canada Regulatory Council (ICCRC) as required to represent you, a Director of ICCRC, a member of the Canadian Association of Immigration Professionals (CAPIC), and a High Honours Graduate of the Immigration Practitioner's Certificate Program. I have volunteered with LEGIT in Toronto since 1994 when I founded LEGIT-Toronto.
