How to bring my Parents or Grandparents to Canada

We are dedicated to helping families come together. Citizens and permanent residents are now able to bring over their parents or grandparents on a Super Visa. As of December 1 2011, you may be eligible to apply for the Parent and Grandparent Super Visa.

The Super Visa could be valid for up to 10 years and allows the applicant to stay in the country for up to 24 months at a time without having to renew the visa.

Understanding the Grandparent and Parent Super Visa

Currently, most visitors that enter Canada must renew their visa every 6 months and every time they do so they must pay a new fee. With the Grandparent and Parent Super Visa this allows an individual to stay in the country without having to renew their visa for up to 2 years.
