Default Staying past visitor visa expiry date.... consequences??

My fiancee is here on a 6 month visitor permit and is supposed to be gone by
May 23rd. My question is we have 2 weddings to go to here and they are on
the 1st weekend in June and am wondering what immigration would do when we
submit the visitor visa to them upon leaving Canada after the deadline has
passed??
Anyone have this kind of experience or know of the consequences??
IE- if she came back here to live for good a couple of years down the road
when we apply for sponsorship or something along those lines.

Thanks in advance.

Why overstay in the first place??? She may simply apply for extension about
5 weeks prior to expiration of her current admission. See here:

She is going back anyways. We don't want to apply if she will be overstaying
2 additional weeks.

Wrong decision. She may be banned for few years from Canada and her PR
application will be affected. Don't do it, apply for extension.

This would be a silly decision because you put your fiance in an unnecessary
situation of risk just because you are too lazy to do the right thing by
her.

Josh, please take the advice of the experts and apply for the extension. I
just did my landing interview yesterday as an inland sponsored spouse, and
the interviewer asked me whether I had ever overstayed in Canada or been
denied entry to Canada.

I would assume that I could have lost my positive PR decision at the final
stage if I had answered yes to either of those questions. Why else would
she have asked them?

If you are serious about marrying your fiance (and I assume you are), please
don't let her jeopardize her entire future ability to receive PR status in
Canada. Yes, it will cost you $75 to apply for the extension, but that is
nothing compared to your future together.

I can apply to extend her visit even though she has already stayed here 6
months? I thought you HAD to leave if you have already stayed for 6 months.
If we can go that route then we will, it's just I don't know what to put on
the extension "reason for staying". On the last one we told them she would
be going back and now we will be applying to stay longer??? Won't
Immigration laugh at this?
I mean we just want to be together is that so hard to understand.
We would just want an extension until mid June so I guess that isn't such a
big deal as she was scheduled to leave May 23rd, we would really like it
extended a month.
Anyways tell me what you think!!!

Thanks people.

I guess the fact that you guys need to attend couple of weddings is a pretty good reason to extend her stay... and thats what you should write in the form as the reason to stay...
