If you aren’t invited to apply to sponsor your parents and grandparents

Your parents and grandparents may be eligible to apply for a super visa which lets them stay in Canada for 5 years at a time.

Parents and grandparents visiting on a super visa can also apply for 2-year extensions to their stay while they’re still in Canada.
