Hello, I hope someone can clarify this, I'm applying under family class, inland. I've read the guide, and I also searched here in the forums, but it's still not quite clear with my case.

I'm filling out the imm0008 Generic Application form for Canada, and in question 10 it says Current country of residence. I've been living with my husband in Canada, as a visitor. I entered Canada on March 29, 2019, and my entry would have expired on September 29, 2019. Got married in August then applied for an extension, I requested a year (so from my expire date to September of this year). So to summarize I'm still under the status of a visitor till September 29, 2020.

My question is what are the 'From' and 'To' dates that I should put? from when I entered in March 2019 to September 2020 (which is when my extension will expire). Or from September 29, 2019 (when my extension period started). to September 29, 2020? The first one makes more sense to me, but maybe I need to clarify in a separate sheet that I'm under extension?

Sorry if this sounded confusing, tried to explain the best way :(

The form may not let you specify a future date or something weird like that. If that happens, specify the date of signing.

It has the 'to' , I thought that means when status would expire if not receiving PR. You mean I should put the date I plan to send the application?

If you haven't left Canada, March 2019 for the From date.
