You can sponsor your dependent children, whether biological or adopted, to live with you as permanent residents in Canada.

If you live outside Quebec
To become a sponsor, you must promise to financially take care of the persons you are sponsoring for a period of time. This is known as “ promise an undertaking”.
The undertaking commits you to:
· repaying any provincial social assistance your sponsored family members get during that time
In most cases, there isn’t an income requirement to sponsor your spouse or partner or dependent child. You only need to show that you have enough money to meet the income requirements if:
When you agree to be a sponsor, you must sign an undertaking, promising to give financial support for the basic needs of your dependent children.
Basic needs are:
Before signing the undertaking agreement, you must make sure the people you sponsor won’t need to ask the government for financial help. If they receive social assistance, you’ll have to pay back what they received during the time you are legally responsible for them. You won’t be able to sponsor anyone else until you’ve repaid the amount.
The undertaking is a binding promise of support, meaning that it is your responsibility to support the applicant(s) for the length of the undertaking period even if your situation changes. The undertaking will stay in effect for the length of the undertaking period, even if your situation changes. The undertaking won’t be cancelled, even if:
· you have financial problems
Length of undertaking is 3 years from the day your dependent child (or the dependent child of your spouse, common-law partner or conjugal partner) over 22 years of age becomes a permanent resident.
Length of undertaking is 10 years from the day your dependent child (or the dependent child of your spouse, common-law partner or conjugal partner) under 22 years of age becomes a permanent resident, or until the child becomes 22 years old, whichever comes first. The length of undertaking for residents of Quebec is slightly different.
