Unfortunately, I don’t think you can. She’s not a direct member of your family class. If she were his sister, niece, or granddaughter, you could. Also, if he didn’t have any family in Canada, then he could make a case as to why he wants to bring her. But having any living relative on this list excludes you: spouse; common law or conjugal partner; child; siblings; grandparents; etc.

I am in the process of sponsoring my FI to come to Canada. Your situation is unique, I’m not sure how it would work as she is your FI’s cousin (not child/partner/grandparent as PP said), but the fact that she is an orphan and a minor might be a different story. Although I’m not sure if it would be possible without you adopting her first.

I would contact some kind of immigration lawyer to find out details, as your situation sounds very unique.

My neighbour just brought over her grandmother – it took 5+ years and cost over $4000 for forms, medical tests, lawyer fees, etc. In your case it might be different as its a child with no other relatives – your best bet is to hire an immigration lawyer and see what they say. It won’t be cheap!

From what I recall, other relative is typically reserved for if you can prove you do not have other family or support in Canada and need this person. It’s a very difficult category. Since your FI has you, his soon-to-be wife (and I’m not even sure what other family in Canada), I don’t think it applies. Does she have siblings in Canada? Or grandparents?

mnanch :  Oh no I’m sorry that’s terrible 🙁 as you want to for very legitimate reasons. Since your case is unique and so complicated do you have an immigration lawyer?
