My Child Was Born in Canada, Can I Stay in Canada?

What type of visa can I use to stay if my baby was born in Canada

Babies born in Canada are granted Canadian citizenship even if you are not a citizen. However, this does not mean that, as a parent, you will be automatically granted citizenship. As a result, it can seem confusing to know what to do after your baby is born. There are a couple of options available to you. Which one you choose will depend on what type of visa you are on while in Canada and where you ultimately want to live

Permanent Residency

If you are interested in staying in Canada after your visa expires, you can apply for Canada’s permanent residency program. A permanent resident is an immigrant who lives in Canada permanently but is still a citizen of another country. There are 5 different paths to obtaining a Permanent Resident card (the card given to those granted Permanent Residency).

  1. Express Entry 
  2. Business Immigration 
  3. Family Class
  4. Canadian Experience Class
  5. Provincial Nominee Program 

Parent and Grandparent Super Visa

If you wish to move home while raising your child, this option allows your child to sponsor you in 18 years. When your child reaches adulthood, they can file for a Super Visa. The super visa allows them to bring you and your parents to Canada. However, the Canadian government is restricting this particular type of visa. Therefore, it may not be an option in the future.

Temporary Visa

If you are unsure what you wish to do, you can always apply for a temporary visa. These visas include work visas and study visas. The value of applying for this type of visa is that you will have time to decide if you wish to apply for permanent residency.
