I have a visitor visa to Canada on my old passport. I renewed my passport to have. six months valid passport when travelling. can I enter Canada with a visa on my old passport? I will take both passports with me?

and do I really need a six months valid passport when entering Canada?

  • Travel on your new passport and have the visa in the old passport ready to show to the officer. This quite common and the officer will be ok with it - provided the visa is still valid and you're using it for the purpose for which it was granted. – canonacer Apr 15 '19 at 18:15

can I Enter Canada with a visa on my old passport?

Yes, as long as the visa remains valid. (Canadian visas are not normally valid beyond the passport's expiration date.) See Can I travel to Canada with valid visa on old/expired passport?

I will take both passports with me?

Yes. If you don't bring both passports, you won't have the visa.

and do I really need a six months valid passport when entering canada?

No. Canada requires only that the passport be valid for the duration of your stay. If you show up with a passport that is valid for a period shorter than six months, you will be admitted until the day on which your passport expires. See Passport validity for Canada.
