If you are looking to sponsor your parents and grandparents, know that the Family Sponsorship program is not the only way. Do you know about the Super Visa? Though it’s a Temporary Resident Visa (TRV), it lets a parent or a grandparent stay in Canada for 10 years!

The validity of the visa is 10 years and to take full advantage of the visa, your parent or grandparent can stay for 5 years maximum at a time. A super visa will let you visit Canada for more than once, meaning it’s a multiple visa.
