I entered to Canada on 16th June 22 by visa in my expired passport and a new passport valid for next 5 years. The end of visa in my expired passport is 29th Nov 2022. Can I stay inside Canada till 16th December which is end of my 6 months (according to CIC, date of visa is entry date not expiration date) or my visa is expired.

Most visitors are allowed to stay in Canada for 6 months. You may be admitted for a shorter time, in which case your passport will be stamped on entry to indicate a shorter duration and you may be given other documentation.

If there is no stamp to say anything different then you are permitted to stay for six months.

The fact that the Visa is in an expired passport is immaterial.
