Hi all,

I got my mom here on approved 5 years TRV but she can only stay 6 months at a time except we extend her stay to more than 6 months and she would be 6 month in Canada by May 26. Now we would like to extend her stay for more than 6 months. Anybody done this before should please advise us on how to go about this. Also we got 2 babies and my wife is studying in a school while mom help to take care of babies at home when she’s away, Can we draft a letter stating mom is helping out with babies while my wife is away to school? If not what else can we say as reason for extending her stay in Canada?

Thanks everyone.

be careful about saying mom is taking care of babies given strange as might sound CBSA/CIC have in past considered this work. There are other posts here saying TRVs have been refused for this reason where people have said this reason.

Thanks you Bs65 for this insightful information. What do you think we can state for her extension request?

Thanks

please friends I need help.

I came to canada as a visitor and got married to a student, she's not a citizen nor does she have a permanent resident but she has student permit to school for 2 years. She want me to stay here with her for support, and I need work to support her. Will it be possible for me to get a work permit? Can I also use this period to do my masters here too? Please help me. Thanks.

Hi Dkr
If im not mistaken you can only request extension when you example.
Have a visa for 12 mths or more. Your visa is only valid for 6mth hense you can reapply in hoping to get a longer time, then you revisit and apply for extension.


Hope this helps

Extending Stay in Canada

Hi Dave01,

I read your thread, did you get the extension done. Please let me know because i may face the same situation when my mother wishes to extend her stay.

Wait to hear from you.

Thank you
Dominica
