What can I include so that the visa officer doesn't think I would like to stay back in Canada?

• I am not satisfied that you will leave Canada at the end of your stay as a temporary resident, as stipulated in paragraph 179(b) of the IRPR, based on the purpose of your visit.

• I am not satisfied that you will leave Canada at the end of your stay as a temporary resident, as stipulated in paragraph 179(b) of the IRPR, based on your family ties in Canada and in your country of residence.

I am attending a cousin's wedding in Canada. I intended to stay with her for 2 weeks.

I included the invitation letter from her with details about her wedding and that I will be staying with her, her passport along with her husband's passport, and the wedding invitation.

I included details about my family back in my home country and that they were not accompanying me.

Some additional information:

  • I am from India.
  • My flight tickets in and out of Canada were booked and provided.
  • I am self employed and provided my business registration in India and my company registration in the UK along with business bank documents and sufficient funds.
  • I provided travel history with 4 UK visas, Schengen Visa, UAE visa.
  • I provided sufficient personal funds to show I have no reason to stay in Canada.
  • I included a picture of us together.

There are Regulated Canadian Immigration Consultants (RCICs) which I can hire but that cost is too high.

Any advice?

  • What family do you have in India? – Michael Hampton Mar 26 at 20:20

    You’re not likely to receive any answer that will be earth shattering. From what you have provided and assuming it’s accurate plus having 4 UK and Schengen visas, you fit the profile of a genuine visitor. Some of the refusals are just nonsensical and based on broad stereotypes particularly for applicants from developing nations. – user 56513 Mar 26 at 21:12

    Is there any reason to think that you would lose the value of those investments if you were living illegally in Canada? You would still legally own the stocks, real estate, or whatever. – phoog Mar 26 at 21:39

    @Traveller Yes I agree. The investments are liquid and can be transferred out. However investing in real estate is not an option for me at this time. I guess I have to re-work the application to show that I need to leave Canada for my own benefit. – Warren Mar 27 at 10:10
