Canada is a beautiful country and one of the most visited in the world. The Canadians and the government welcome all the people who wants to visit but you must also respect Canada’s requirements to do so. Usually visitors may stay for six months. If they wish to stay longer, they must apply for a visitor extension. Visitors to Canada are not eligible for provincial health coverage and are advised to obtain medical insurance for the period of their stay.

It is possible for a visitor to extend their visit. To do so, they must apply 30 days before their status expires.

You may need to give your biometrics (fingerprints and photograph) when applying for a visitor visa, study permit or work permit.
If you need to give your biometrics with your Temporary Resident Visa, Work Permit, or Study Permit application, you have to go in person to the Visa Application Centre (VAC). DO NOT submit your application by mail. The VAC will collect your biometrics at the same time you submit your application. (from Canadian Government website)
