Let’s begin with this edition of FAQs on Canadian immigration by discussing the three most relevant topics. 

Q1. What is the latest update on the Super Visa program for parents and grandparents of Canadian Citizens or Permanent Residents? 

There is no recent update to the Super Visa program

The Super Visa allows parents and grandparents of Canadians to stay in Canada for an extended period of time. They can stay in Canada for up to five consecutive years without renewing their visitor status. Furthermore, parents and grandparents can enter Canada multiple times with the Super Visa for up to 10 years.

To be eligible for the Super Visa, the applicant can be a parent or grandparent of a Canadian citizen or permanent resident. 

No other dependents are included as an applicant for the Super Visa.

Other eligibility requirements include: 

  • A signed letter from a child or grandchild that invites the applicant.
  • A promised financial support for the applicant for the duration of the visit.
  • Applicant should have medical insurance from a Canadian insurance company with one-year validation from the date of the entry. It should hold nearly$100,000 of emergency coverage.
  • The applicant’s child or grandchild must also be able to demonstrate that they can meet the low-income cutoff (LICO) requirements. This is to show that they are financially stable to support their family member.

Q2. What is ‘maintained status’ in Canada and how to get it? 

Section 181 of the the Immigration and Refugee Protection Regulations (IRPR) defines ‘Maintained status’ in Canada that allows temporary residents to retain legal status in Canada, say after expiry of term or otherwise, while waiting for IRCC to process their application to extend their temporary stay. 

Usually, all temporary residents have an automatically imposed condition that they are required to leave Canada after their work permit expires.

IRCC recommends submitting your extension application before your existing status expires to avoid complications.

Consider discussing specific details of your case with our immigration expert.

Q3. Has Canada increased the transition period for distance learning to help international students pursue studies online? 

Yes, Canada has extended the Distance learning measures upto to August 31st, 2023 in order to give more time for international students to return to Canada. 

During the recent border restrictions, international students were given an option to pursue their studies in enrolled Canadian universities or institutions online while living abroad. They are also eligible to apply for a post-graduation work permit (PGWP) after course completion. 

PGWP allows recent graduates to work full-time in Canada and gain work experience to qualify for permanent residence soon after one year under Canada Experience Class (CEC) Express Entry program. 

International students studying abroad or who submit a study permit application before August 31st 2022 will be able to continue to complete up to 100% of their program online, without affecting their eligibility for a PGWP. 

Some international students may not have their application processed on time to begin their studies in person for the fall 2022 intake period. 

However, this innovative measure serves as a testament to the fact that Canada encourages the intake of foreign students and depends upon foreign skilled immigration to sustain its aging population and support the economy. Read this report
