Your Next Chapter

You love your children and grandchildren with all of your heart, and you hate that you aren’t able to see them often. Travel delays and restrictions have made it difficult, time consuming, and expensive for you to visit each other. You feel like you’re missing out on those key family milestones - graduations, birthdays, anniversaries, and those ordinary moments that you always took for granted.

Your child or grandchild has suggested sponsoring you for permanent residence, but you aren’t interested in permanently moving to Canada. After all, you have a life of your own! You would miss your friends, other family members, and home too much. But even though you don’t want to move to Canada, you would love to visit for an extended period to enjoy quality time with your children or to help raise your grandchildren. 

The lawyers at Sisu Legal have experienced this struggle themselves. They know what it’s like to live in a different country than their parents, and to wish that they were closer - especially once they had children of their own. For that reason, Sisu Legal is proud to help reunite families with our done-for-you Super Visa Application Service.


Canada’s super visa program has specific requirements, and you must satisfy all criteria before your application will be approved by a reviewing officer. To be eligible for a super visa, you must:

  • Be the parent or grandparent of a Canadian citizen or permanent resident;
  • Be admissible to Canada;
  • Apply for the super visa from outside of Canada and have the visa printed outside of Canada;
  • Undergo a medical exam;
  • Meet other certain conditions

Additionally, you must have a signed letter from your child or grandchild that invites you to Canada. That letter must include:

  • A promise of financial support for the length of your visit;
  • The list and number of people in their household;
  • A copy of the child or grandchild’s Canadian citizenship or permanent resident document

Finally, you must have proof of private medical insurance from a Canadian insurance company. This medical insurance must:

  • Be paid in full, or in installments with a deposit;
  • Be valid for at least one (1) year from the date you enter Canada;
  • Cover healthcare, hospitalization, and repatriation;
  • Provide for at least $100,000 emergency coverage; and
  • Be valid for each entry to Canada

What You Can Expect

When you unwrap the way this service works, here’s an overview of what you can expect…

A Strategic Plan

We don’t believe in “winging it”. This service includes an initial meeting with a lawyer to discuss your goals, your concerns, and to answer any questions you have. We will go over the visa requirements and will guide you through the entire process. You will feel comfortable, knowledgeable, and confident.

An Execution Strategy

A plan is nothing without execution. You’ll get a customized checklist so that you can start gathering the best possible evidence for your application. We will make document collection as painless as possible with a customized upload link and a secured shared folder that you can add to, whenever it is most convenient for you.

Attention to Detail - Always

We’ve got checks and balances along the way to ensure that nothing gets missed. You’ll do a few simple questionnaires and we will do all the heavy lifting behind the scenes. We have systems, processes, and technology in place to help reduce the chance of errors.

Support - Reach out anytime you get stuck

Schedule a call or email us with your questions - whenever, at no extra charge. You can always expect a response within one business day. However, the goal is to anticipate as many of your questions as possible and provide you with lots of resources and information so that you always have a clear picture of what comes next.

Snapshot of our Process

Here's a snapshot of our process:

Step 1 

Schedule a Strategy Session

This will allow us to get to know each other and figure out if we are a good fit. If you decide to move forward within 30 days of your consultation, the consultation becomes free.

Step 2 

After you agree that we are a good fit, it is time to come up with a tailored  plan and execute. We will go over strategy and a roadmap of how to gather the best evidence, what affidavits are required, and how to put together flawless forms.

Step 3 

Amazing—now that we are almost there, we will put your entire application through an  error-proofing review system and discuss how it can be made even better. No cutting corners here.

Please note, to keep up with our high service standards, there are limited spots available each month.
