Temporary Residence (Stay in Canada for a limited time)
Temporary Residence status refers to authorizations given to foreigners coming to stay in Canada for a limited amount of time; normally applies to those coming to visit, work, study, attend a conference or business meeting.
To obtain and maintain Canadian temporary resident status, foreigners must meet the legal requirements which may include:
- Leave Canada by the end of authorized stay
- not to study or work without permission
Application for Canadian temporary resident status is managed by both Immigrations Refugee and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) and Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA). The visa officer may decide whether to approve the visa application request an IRCC inland office and the border officer will determine whether to admit the foreigner into Canada on a temporary basis while imposing some conditions.
Temporary Residence Permits
A temporary resident permit (TRP) is only granted in extraordinary cases; to inadmissible foreigners who need special permission or considerations to enter or remain in Canada.
To overcome inadmissibility, the officer must be convinced that the reasons for allowing such foreigner to enter and stay in Canada outweigh any health and safety risks to members of the Canadian society.
