The government of Canada will be allowing entry for extended family members of Canadian Citizens and permanent residents. This decision has been made to help families in Canada unite with loved ones. The following extended family members of Canadian citizens and Permanent Residents would be eligible to travel to Canada under the new process:
Individuals in an exclusive dating relationship with a Canadian citizen or permanent resident for at least 1 year
· non-dependent children
· siblings(including half and step-siblings)
These people will not need to demonstrate that they are entering for a purpose that is non optional or non discretionary.
