I want to sponsor my father to come to Canada from the US. I know I do not meet the income requirement but he has his own monthly income and private insurance that he can bring with him, so he will not be 100% dependent on me or my husband for support. But besides being his only child, his health is failing due to his current abusive living situation in the US. Is there a way I can still sponsor him to come to live with me and my family even if I do not meet the income requirement?
