There is no such program that will get your mother here ´earlier as possible´. There is a long line of people like you who would like to bring a parent or parents to live with them in Canada. Last stats say Canada accepts 18,000 per year. There is more than 18,000 applications so the list becomes longer and longer.

Everyone´s story is the same so there is no point in saying your situation is different.

If your mother has no ties to her home country, and your only brother is in the process of immigrating to Canada as well - a visitors visa will be very hard to obtain.

The entire purpose to say no to a visa is for the exact reason you want it! Visitor Visa´s are not intended to help you wait inside Canada for CIC to finish the application.

You can try, but I would not hold out hope.

The bigger question should be, does your family want to leave your mother in India alone or should you consider your brother staying with her to care for her until CIC finalized your mothers application.

Something to consider.

You may bring her to Canada on Visitor´s visa to spend time with her. I am not sure how it works, but Roy once wrote on this forum about ´Compassion and Humanity applications´ for elderly parents. He may be able to put more insight on this. You will find him on www.cvimmigration.com . Send him an e-mail. I think he is very helpful on such complicated issues.

Almost Perfect!!

the trick is to get Mom into Canada first-and that is becoming increasingly difficult. CIC is getting wise to the ´visitor visa/extend the visit/poor Mom has nobody back at home/it is unkind to send her home therefore she should be allowed to stay´ in front of everyone else that has put their application in.

something to think about- where would Mom be happier? With friends, familiar surroundings, around her own language, customs, culture or in a strange place where her son leaves her home alone all day with nothing to do, nobody to talk to, a strange culture... but a roof over her head.

The last post seems to me as a suggestion to keep mom away ...but I am sure Mom is happier with son. Friends, familiar surroundings etc. mean a lot but definitely not more than being around own blood. Mom is Indian, not Western... Family comes first to Mom & Mom is happy in Son´s happiness...

Mom has a son back home...and he is UNMARRIED!! Even better reason for Mom to go back and get her son married! So, may be easier than many to get visitor´s visa...

not intending to keep Mom away - just wanting to question the quality of life being offered. I see immigrant parents being treated as slaves by their children and they do not have much of a life.

as for son #2 - he is making active efforts to leave the country too. CIC is not stupid and they will not buy the going home story very easily.

Family really comes first?
Is that the reason why the son left his old mom back? or
Is it because the son is western but mom is Indian?

What was the point of referring to "Western" and "Indian" in the post?
