    I am a Canadian citizen. I have no family members in Canada. My wife had died long time ago. I have no children. My one and only relative is my nephew who is living with his two daughters: one is 2 years old and other is 1 year old. His wife died recently due to Covid-19. He lives alone as well and not able to take care of his two kids. Can I sponsor my nephew to come and stay with me in Canada under the ‘Lonely Canadian Class?

    As per IRCC R117(1)(h) “Lonely Canadian” Rule, a Canadian citizen or permanent resident can sponsor ONE adult son/daughter, brother, sister, uncle, aunt, niece/nephew to immigrate to Canada on a permanent basis. The person you are sponsoring must be related to you by blood. You cannot sponsor someone under the lonely Canadian rule if you have any of the following relatives living in Canada:

    – Spouse/common-law partners

    – Child

    – Parent

    – Grandparent

    – Sibling

    – Niece/Nephew

    – Aunt/Uncle

    As you have no relatives in Canada and no family members, whom you can sponsor anywhere else. Therefore, you qualify, and the children of the your nephew may be included in the same application.
