Canadian visa is not at all related to your US visa. If you are not a US citizen then you need to show the proof of your status, tht's it.

I recently got multiple-entry canada visitor visa from NY consulate. Expiry date on it is 3 weeks before I-797 validity date. Now, you have mixed experiences. Some people get based on passport expiry date and some do get based on H1B (I-797). Ask the name of consulate naveena08 got canada visa from. It may be a particular consulate that gives visa based on passport expiry date.

I was under the impression that (a multi-purpose) Canadian visitor visa's expiry date is earlier of the two:

  1. expiry of current status in USA (My H-1B is valid until Dec 2014)
  2. expiry of passport (My passport is valid until April 2022)

I got my single-entry Canadian TRV on Aug 7, 2012 (yesterday) from the Canadian Consulate in Los Angeles, CA.

Unusually, I found out that it is valid only until June 2013. I'm not sure how/why they came up with that date.

Anyways, it's okay for me, as I'm planning to visit Canada in Oct 2012.

I requested for Multiple visa & got visa for 8 years, just one month before of the PP expiry date. This is my 3rd H1B extn & sent all I 797 copies to them. One of my friend also like me..

We can not guess how they are issuing the visas!
