Apply for an extension of stay and then file the sponsorship application. The TRV has an intent of an application staying temporarily in Canada and then leaving. If you give the reason to extend due to filing the sponsorship application, then it vitiates the intent of the TRV and may go against you.Hello Legalfalcon,
I am a PR in Canada. When I applied for my PR in 2017 my wife and daughter were listed as non-accompanying dependents. Later they joined me to Canada on TRV. Their visitor visa is valid for 3 years. However, upon entry in July 2018, they were entitled to a 6 months stay which will end in January 2018.
Now I am planning to submit their inland sponsorship application under the Canada class in early December 2018 and apply for an extension of stay in mid-December 2018 stating that I have applied for a sponsorship and other family reasons.
Is it the right thing to do?
Or will it make more sense to apply for an extension of stay first and then submit the sponsorship application?
Please also advice if an outland application would be a better option in my situation.
