Hello-

We applied supervisa for my dad in Oct this year and it got refused due to following reasons:

1. Purpose of visit
2. Strong family ties in Canada and in country of residence.
3. Any history of contravening the condition of admission of previous stay in Canada.

My dad has previous condition where if overstayed in Canada back in the year 1979. And now all of us my sister(PR) and my brother(work visa) and myself(applied spousal visa) are settled in Canada and my dad wants visit Canada because all of us are here and my mom passed away in 2016.

Almost 36 years have gone and my dad has lived all his life and have assets and business in home country.
can anyone suggest what should we do? should we reapply ? They have mentioned in the refusal letter that we can reapply.

Please help.
thanks and regards

Maybe try applying for a regular visitor visa for a 2-3 week trip.

Exactly what evidence did he provide to show proof of ties to his home country?

Once of the challenges your father faces is it sounds like he has no remaining immediate family in his home country - and everyone is in Canada. This means he has very strong familial ties to Canada and likely makes CIC concerned he has plans on remaining long term.

Yes he did work and overstayed in Canada in 1979. Someone complained about his overstay.
Maybe try applying for a regular visitor visa for a 2-3 week trip.

i dont know the exact reason why he overstayed..Also we did applied visitor visa last year for my brother's convocation and they refused that too.
His family ties to Canada far outweigh those to his home country. This negatively impacts his chances of being approved for a TRV.
