If you are the parent or grandparent of a Canadian citizen or permanent resident and you,
- Do not wish to come to Canada permanently
- Do not want to go through the process of applying for a visitor’s visa (if not from a visa-exempt country)
- Want to stay in Canada for more than six months at a time
then making an application for a Super Visa may be preferable to you. In addition to the above reasons, applying for a Super Visa is also less expensive.
