I would like to inquire about applying for a TRV for my mother-in-law.

My husband and I are expecting our first child in February 2015 and would really like to have my mother in law here for support during the first few month of the baby's birth.

I am a Canadian citizen and my husband is a permanent resident.

While I am employed full time, my husband is currently a student preparing for this Medical Council Qualification exams. Our household income is $42 000.

Do you think that it would be possible with this information to apply for a TRV for my mother-in-law.

Your guidance on this matter would be greatly appreciated.

Hello,

Thank you for sharing your situation and questions with us.

You can find some helpful information in our Settlement.Org What is the Parent and Grandparent Super Visa? article.

Here is an excerpt,

This visa is for parents and grandparents of permanent residents or Canadian citizens.
The parent or grandparent must be considered admissible to Canada and meet other conditions.
For example, applicants need a letter of financial support from their child or grandchild in Canada, who meets the minimum required income.
Applicants also need to purchase and show proof of Canadian medical insurance that meets the minimum requirements and covers them for at least 1 year.
The process is different if the parent or grandparent is from a country where a visa is required to enter Canada as a visitor.


You may also want to contact the Citizenship and Immigration Canada (CIC) Call Centre directly for some additional information.

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.
