Some visa offices might need more supporting documents that are particular to your nation. Visit the Application for a Visitor Visa website for further details. 

To assemble the documentation necessary to submit your application to the Case Processing Centre - Ottawa, you must utilize the Document checklist - Applicants in Canada [IMM 5721] (PDF, 0.91 MB) (CPC-O).

   A letter of authorization, preferably in English or French and signed by both parents or legal guardians, is required for minors (under 18) traveling alone or with someone other than their parents or guardians. The name of the responsible adult for the children in Canada should also be included.

Please take note that you might have to pay fees in local money. 

Your costs
