What If My Family Member is Applying for a Super Visa?
Parents or Grandparents who are visiting Canada for an extended period may be applying for a Super Visa and the Government of Canada requires proof of valid Canadian medical coverage for at least one year to be provided with the application. The Visitors to Canada policy may be purchased with coverage up to a maximum of 365 days for this purpose.
