Temporary Applicant Opportunities
Foreign individuals looking to be in Canada on a short-term basis can apply for a Temporary Resident Permit. This permit generally is used when one is inadmissible to Canada and are looking to be allowed entry into Canada for a short-term basis.
Reasons foreign individuals may be inadmissible to Canada:
If any of these above reasons occur, one can apply for a Temporary Resident Permit (TRP). This permit is only issued if the Canadian Immigration Authorities are provided compelling circumstances. The TRP allows an individual access into Canada for a set period of time. The permit can be valid for as short as just a few days up to a maximum of three years.
You can apply for a TRP at any time the foreign individual requests it. When applying, a Canadian Immigration Visa Officer will view the inadmissible person’s reasons to enter Canada, considering health and security risks to Canadian citizens. Applicants are required to provide reasonable reasons to get entry into Canada, regardless of how minor the reason for initial inadmissibility may be.
The TRP can be extended from within Canada and expires when the holder leaves the country of Canada unless re-entry was already agreed upon. The TRP can also be instantly cancelled at any time by an Immigration Officer.
In certain situations the applicant be be given permanent residence in Canada after having a TRP. To apply for a Temporary Resident Permit, you must submit an application with supporting documents outlining why you are inadmissible and why you seek to enter Canada.
