Question Description
I am Canadian citizen. I want my brother to immigrate to Canada. But he is over 24 years of age and that's why I can't sponsor him. However, I came to know that I can sponsor him for Canadian student visa. So, is there any other way to sponsor my family to bring them in Canada? Anyway, I am not working now in Canada.
Answer

To be eligible to sponsor your brother, you must commit that you will financially support him during his stay as a student in Canada signing a sponsorship agreement letter. Additionally you must show the documentary proof like bank certificates and bank statements with last 2 years transaction records showing availability of enough funds to support your brother during his stay period as a student in Canada.

You said that you are not working in Canada. If you have problem relating to financing, if you do not have enough funds to sponsor your brother alone, then you and your parents in India can sponsor jointly. Moreover, you may also ask your brother to apply for scholarship in any of the Canadian University or Colleges so as to help you minimize the financial burden.
