You should be able to provide them with basic living requirements like food, shelter and clothing.
- Enter into an agreement with the government of Canada: If you are sponsoring your parents then you have to enter into an agreement with the government of Canada. This agreement states that all the essential needs of the immigrant parents are to be fulfilled by the sponsor. In case the sponsoring individual is over 19 years, then he or she must commit to working on becoming self-sufficient.
