Subject: Sponsor friend visiting Canada
  Hi there,
I´d like to sponsor a good friend of my family to visit/tour Canada from China. I am a Canadian citizen and have a well-paid professional job. I ´d like to know the posibility of getting my friend a visitor´s visa to canada? My friend is a retired professional and owns an apartment in China. His wife passed away a few years ago. He has 2 sons living in China with him.
Please help me with your experience and any information is highly appreaciated. Thanks. jenny

it is not techically a sponsorship - you invite him, and explain that he will be your guest and you will be responsible for his housing and food. He should bring spending money. It would be best if you could reference your family as well. Try not to make it a romantic relationship - even if it is. I am not telling you to lie, I am telling you to be selective.

He will need to show significant ties to home that will insure CIC he intends to return.

Thank you very much for your help. I found from the website of visa office in Shanghai that my friend has to submit a notaralized certificate of the relationship of applicant and the sponser. Do we need this document (we are not relatives)? Also, my friend´s daughter is a Canadina citizen but her income is very low. So technically she is not qualified to sponsor her father visiting Canada. Would this information make the application easily be refused?
Thanks again for your help in advance! Jenny
