The UK government is considering allowing other forms of financial support - other than the sponsoring spouse's income - to be included for the purpose of the minimum income requirement, in some circumstances. Thus, the decision-maker could consider the minimum income requirement met if other sources of income, financial support or funds are taken into account. 

Le projet de loi C-6 qui avait comme but d’apporter des modifications à la Loi sur la citoyenneté canadienne a finalement reçu la sanction royale, devenant ainsi une loi. Les changements apportés à la loi bénéficieront des milliers d’immigrants et leurs familles au Canada. En vertu de la nouvelle législation, les résidents permanents Canadiens peuvent présenter une demande pour la citoyenneté dans un délai plus court qu’auparavant.

Cependant, il est important de garder à l’esprit que certaines des modifications apportées à la législation n’entreront en vigueur que plus tard dans l’année ou au début de 2018, tandis que d’autres modifications sont immédiatement entrées en vigueur.

“We want all permanent residents, if possible, to become Canadians,” said Canada’s Immigration Minister, Ahmed Hussen, at a recent conference in Toronto, and now the process will become quicker and simpler for immigrants to the country. Bill C-6 — which, among other changes, will decrease the amount of time new immigrants have to wait before becoming eligible to obtain Canadian citizenship — is scheduled to receive Royal Assent this evening (June 19), the final step before the bill may become law.

The Government of Canada has removed the condition that applied to some sponsored spouses or partners of Canadian citizens and permanent residents to live with their sponsor in order to keep their permanent resident status.

Le gouvernement du Canada a éliminé la condition selon laquelle certains époux ou partenaires parrainés par des citoyens canadiens ou des résidents permanents devaient vivre avec leur répondant afin de conserver leur statut de résident permanent.

Sarah van Walsum 18 February 1955 – 9 November 2014

With the insightful oration “Intimate strangers,” Sarah van Walsum accepted her position as the chair of “migration law and family ties” on 7 June 2012 at the Vrije Universiteit of Amsterdam. She passed away way too early so she was unable to finish the work she started.

In her oration Sarah showed that the world looks completely different if you do not view it as ordered as traditional sovereign states with protected borders, but if you take the worldwide network of intimate family relations as a starting point for coherence.
