Canada Spouse and Common-law Partner Immigration Program
Thousands of families reunite through Canada’s spouse and common-law partner sponsorship program every year. Lately after monitoring, this program has detected misuse of spouse visa through marriages of convenience. The couple marry each other for the purpose of immigration. They mislead the immigration by projecting themselves as married couple and apply for spouse visa.  Immigration now has implemented multiple procedures to detect this fraud. 

Spouse sponsorship applications are being reviewed and in 2015 about 2288 application have been refused. In 2016 there are 778 applications which are still under review on the basis of marriage under convenience, though out of 100 applications 86% of them are genuine. Normally there are two type of fraud files which immigration comes across, one is marriage of convenience for immigration purpose and the second one is breaking up with the first marriage and marries for immigration, later resume their first marriage and bring the spouse/common-law partner on Permanent residence visa. Immigration can refuse the visa applications if proved positive in these two circumstances. 

There are different ways to know if the marriage is genuine. Couple provide complete documentation proof of their relationship and marriage during the process of application like – marriage certificate, insurance, dual bank accounts, photographs, travel together itineraries, ownership of accommodation or rental lease. Officer will have the final authority to ask for further documents during the process. 

Demonstration of their relationship is the responsibility of the couple. Officers now have number of tools to process an application; they can call for personal interviews and interview them separately, request for additional documents, and make home visits. 

Before a refusal of any application, applicant will be interviewed and the outcome may also be positive, enough time will be given to submit genuine documents. The current immigration process works towards the reunification of families and in this process they are strengthening the future of the couple together to build a life in Canada
