Under new regulations there is no discretion in calculating LICO. The requirements must be met for a 12-month period. Persons who do not meet LICO cannot be authorized to sponsor even if they have good employment prospects, extensive assets or relatives willing to provide additional support. Only income of Canadian origin is taken into account.
     

There are a few exceptions:

  • If you are a new immigrant and your income in a few month meets the LICO requirement and you can show your pay stubs for 6 month with the necessary amount.

  • If you commute each day to the U.S.A., but you physically reside in Canada.

  • If you have foreign investment or income, but you have paid Canadian Income tax for the previous 12 month and are residing in Canada.

Note: The sponsor is not required to meet the above income requirements if he or she is sponsoring a spouse.
