Hi Guys, got my passport back with visa stamped. Have been provided only 6 months to come to Canada. I believe it is okay to land there, apply for the card, give a trusted friends address and think about moving later. But should I take my family as well? Can I apply for PR card for them as well? I thought I would get an years time and would take them when it is nice and warm.

The validity of the visa depends on the 1. validity of the passport 2. validity of medical test (1 year) (Validity of visa depends on 1 and 2 whichever is earlier).

Everyone in your family must go to Canada before the expiry of the COPR/Visa, or else they will not become a PR.
