You may pre-qualify for a Canada immigration program.
Extended family members can only travel to/enter Canada to visit extended family in Canada if:
1) they have written permission from IRCC and
2) are staying for 15 days or more.
If they plan to stay less than 15 days, they must demonstrate why their travel is not optional.
Immediate family members do not need written authorization from IRCC. However, they too must meet all other requirements. Find out who IRCC considers an immediate family member at IRCC – Immediate Family Member.
