My son is coming up from the states to help me deal with an illness. Also help me go through all testing and operations if needed.

I live in Toronto, ON.

Hello,

Thank you for sharing your situation and question with us.

We can appreciate that you would be interested in this type of information.

You can find some detailed information on the Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) website in the How long can I stay in Canada as a visitor? section.

Here is an excerpt,

A border services officer at the port of entry in Canada will determine how long you can stay in Canada. Most visitors are allowed a six-month stay from the day they entered Canada. If the officer authorizes a stay of less than six months, they will indicate in your passport the date by which you must leave Canada.


If you want to stay longer than your authorized stay, you should apply for an extension at least 30 days before the authorized end of your stay.




I hope this information is helpful. Please let us know if you have further questions and if there is any follow up to your question/situation.
