This being my first post, I hope I m posting my question under correct topic.
I am inviting my parents here in Canada from India. They had been here in past (2006 & 2010) on regular visitor visa and stayed here six month each time on both occasions.

Since they are alone and old age ( 80 and 75), we took help of a local immigration agency in India to help them for paper work in March 2015. We asked the immigration agency to apply for super visa, provided all the required documents as asked by the agency from here.

What I now understands is that for super visa , need to get insurance from Canadian Co, and applicants should have gone through medical exams. The immigration agent never asked us for proof of insurance from Canadian co., also we were unaware about it. We relied on the agent.

Also just to note that while applying for Super visa, the approximate date of travel was not yet decided.
Anyway, the application was submitted for super visa without insurance paper, and we received visa from New Delhi Canadian embassy. No medical exams were requested by Canadian Embassy. Following are details on visa.
No. of Entry: Multiple
Date of Issue: 15th April 2015
Expiry Date: 13th July 2023
Category: PG-1 Visitor
Rec: FPC ( Not sure what this means)
Now we are planning to call them here as it is convenient to them now.
My question is
1. Is this a Super visa? and will they be allowed to stay here 2 years?
2. Can we buy insurance now starting on the date of their arrival in order to fulfill the requirement of Super visa? We are ready for buy insurance now and my parents can provide the proof of insurance to the officer at the port of entry.
3. If this a regular multiple entry visitor visa, can it be converted to super visa once we provide the proof of insurance bought here in Canada?

Any help for the matter is greatly appreciated.
Please feel free to provide any suggestion in my case.

Thank you

Experience speaks for itself.

You are posting in the correct forum. Please read from the very beginning and you will get a lot more details posted by me in there and you will do better with all of the information.

Now to your questions that you have raised.

Your Parents have a PG-1 Visa. Parents and Grand Parents Category. (Just like Super Visa) The Visa Officer will stamp it for the first SIX Months for their entry. They (You) can renew it after the first SIX Months for another period-like term. (Another six months.)

You should purchase an Insurance Policy for the first SIX Months coinciding with the date of arrival into Canada, with an option to renew the same, if they decide to continue with their stay. Give them the detail and ask them to produce the same at the POE to the IO. Their stay will be then formalized.

Their VISA is a normal Visitor's Visa. You can ask them to convert it to Super Visa when you are renewing it after the first Six months. These are all the formalities that you will have to follow and get to know how.

FPC. these are all the terms that they use in their local jargon. What I know from the CAIPS system is, that it means that the FEE was PAID in CANADA. FPC.

From what you see here you get to know that we have been helping a lot of people with valuable information and guidance and they have been very successful and the clarifications that we provide are hard to beat as we have years of Experience in this field.

Hope this helps and if you have any more questions, please drop them under this.

Good Luck.

FH.

Thank you very much FH, for taking time to review and answer my question. Lots of people told me different thing looking at my case. yours is very insight full and neutral answer. Experience does speaks here for itself.
Greatly appreciate,
We are thinking of putting up permanent immigration file for my parents once they will be here. And trying to figure out how to go about it? Should we take help of consultant or can we do it our self? Could we ask if you can recommend any honest consultant around Toronto?

Thank you so much for your help..

Go through http://www.cic.gc.ca/english/information/applications/sponsor-parents.asp and you should get all information at one place. Prepare and keep ready you file. If you are in GTA, I will recommend to take a day off on the first working day of 2017 so that you can drop off the completed file at CIC parent sponsorship office, somewhere in Mississauga otherwise tie up with a reliable courier agency to drop off the filled up application on the very first working day of 2017.

Regarding hiring a immigration consultant, there is no one opinion fits all. Read out the requirements and all forms few times and judge yourself if you are comfortable in filling up the information yourself. If not, hire someone. If you have any specific question, ask on this forum. To me, filling up those form is not a rocket science but it should be your personal decision. Sometimes, these consultants also do mistakes due to rush or not having enough knowledge - just like in your case, they never asked you to provide the Canadian Insurance for one year. You can also get the Canadian Insurance for one year (while paying the insurance premium monthly with a choice to cut off the policy any time) and ask your parents to hand over the policy to the Visa Officer at the port of entry.

Referring to my case, we have decided to go by your advice (" filling those forms is no rocket science, and any literate person can do it";) will complete all formalities of sponsoring my parents here our self. This forum is amazingly helpful. I think I can not thank enough.
Few doubt if I may put forward.
1. While filling IMM 0008, and IMM 5406 and IMM 5669, asking for information of principal applicant's and accompanying spouse's father/mother and brother/sisters information. Should we include names of brother/sisters names who are deceased? I do not see a reason why CIC would be interested in those info. particularly if they are deceased.
2. My spouse will be a cosigner in this application. Can my spouse be the legal representative for IMM 5476? That way we can act on behalf of our elderly parents for all the paper work.
3. IMM 5669 asks about if my parents have had any govt. position? They both were teachers in govt. schools in India. And it is considered there as semi-govt. positions.

Thanks you again

It is a required information so don't leave it blank. In my case, my grand parents exact dates of birth and death were not available so I just entered the years and left the month and date columns blank.

2. My spouse will be a cosigner in this application. Can my spouse be the legal representative for IMM 5476? That way we can act on behalf of our elderly parents for all the paper work.

Yes - your spouse can be the legal representative. You should check mark the column [ UNPAID] and [family member or friend].

3. IMM 5669 asks about if my parents have had any govt. position? They both were teachers in govt. schools in India. And it is considered there as semi-govt. positions.

I don't think so. My father is also a retired school teacher but I entered as none in the govt. position section. It is meant for Judge, Police officers and similar posts.

Hello there,
While filling out immigration forms for sponsoring parents,
1. We have only one son aged 20+, staying with us here in Canada, we are paying his school fees etc. I do not see him to fit in dependent child's (type 1 or 2) definition as given my CIC. In form IMM5678 question 6 asking to provide details of every other family member not included above and dependent on you financially. How do we calculate family size? ( we are three adults here inviting my parents)

2. I was trying to see the requirements for photos to be attached with the application. I could not find any thing regarding photo requirement. Am I missing something here?

3. Also while sending the completed application, will they accept application personally delivered to them or has to be sent by post or courier? How we can make sure that the application are received on the very first day i.e. 3rd jan 2017 at the earliest?

Thank you
regards,
