Default VISA Requirements for visiting Canada From Delhi, India

My mother wants to visit us in Canada and spend three months with us
here.
She 60+ yrs of age (in perfectly good health) and currently is in
India.

We came to Canada in March 2002.

We checked the CIC Delhi website for the visa requirements and have
sent the following documents to India
a) Bank statement (signed my bank)
b) Notarised copy of landing paper and passport
c) Letter of invite
d) Letter from my company showing proof of employment

My Mother has all the required documents she needs to submit like bank
statement etc etc.

She was informed by a travel agent in Delhi who reviewed her papers,
that she had a very slim chance of getting a short term visa to come
to canada because
a) apparently her age goes against her
b) we are not as yet Canadian citizens and will get our PR card in a
couple of weeks.
and suggested we contact an immigration lawyer here who would help us
prepare some sort of a letter stating that she is coming here for only
a holiday and not to stay permanently.

What do I make of this last request? Is this really required? The CIC
website did not mention any such document.

Any help from Humphries/Metcalfe/Miller would really be appreciated.

Travel agent is most likely trying to solicit business for his friend
lawyer. Documents you provided your mother with (if all are there) are
enough from your side. Now she must provide evidence of having substantial
ties to India that will motivate her enough to return home after visiting
you in Canada.

AM is right. As she visited before the chances of getting a new visa
are good. Howver you never know unless she applies. Do it.
