INTRODUCTION TO FAMILY CLASS APPLICATIONS
This program allows spouses the ability to sponsor each other and their dependant children, as well as adult children to sponsor their parents and grandparents to come and live permanently in Canada. In the short term, the Supervisa program also allows Canadians and permanent residents to assist with the acquisition of long-term visitor visas for their parents. These can last up to ten years and with individual periods of stay of up to five years, without an extension. The details of each of these programs follow.
