Parent and Grandparent Sponsorship
The Parent and Grandparent Super Visa is a temporary residence visa that allows parents and grandparents to live in Canada for up to two years on each visit. It is legal for up to ten years. A consistent multiple-entry visa is also valid for up to ten years but only permits for a stay of up to six months per visit.
