Default how long can I have visitors?

Dear all,

i have been accepted as a Permanent resident.
during this residency,am I allowed a relative stay with me for more than a normal holiday break? for example,could I "sponsor" my own Mum for a 6 month period to live with me?

Surely she is allowed to enter the country as a tourist, like anyone else with a maximum stay. She can stay with you if she wants (hotel, B&B, relative: PR or otherwise - makes no difference). She couldn't work, would have no more rights than any other tourist and you can't sponsor her for anything... to the best of my knowledge!

Visitors coming in on a British Passport can usually stay in Canada for 6 month with no problem. She may just be asked to show her return ticket. I'm sure a few other people will be along to clarify the finer points

You'd likely get fed up with them long before they have to go home!

Up to 6 months, the immigration officer at POE will determine how long. Usually coming on a UK passport with a return ticket, 6 months will likely not be a problem. For the immigration officer anyway.
