I am a PR in Canada, my parents are planning to visit Canada for tourism purpose and visit me as well (1.5 - 2 months)

What should be selected as a purpose of visit, tourism or family visit? Intent is to do both.
They would be staying at my place but have sufficient funds to bear the expenses on their own too.
And they would be adding their own financial statements/supportings along with online application.

I noticed that invitation letter becomes mandatory when family visit is selected whereas for tourism it is not.

Just want to understand what is the correct reason to be selected when parents of a PR visit Canada.

It's advisable to have well-defined visit plans.... and not undecided dates for their return.

Family visit

That's good.

You can provide an invitation letter + your documents, right? It would improve their chances of TRV approvals
