What is a Temporary Resident Permit?

A Temporary Resident Permit (TRP) may be issued to individuals who are otherwise inadmissible to Canada because of reasons related to health, or criminality. A Temporary Resident Permit may allow these individuals to enter into, or stay in Canada where allowed by other compelling circumstances. A TRP grants entry into Canada and can be applied for at any time. This permit can be issued for a stay of up to 3 years, and if necessary, can be extended from within Canada.

Consideration will be placed on the health and safety of the Canadian population, before a TRP will be granted. Applicants must be able to prove that their entry into Canada is safe, and justified. It is important to note, that a permit can be cancelled at any time by an officer. In other circumstances, a TRP holder may eventually be granted permanent residency status in Canada.

In an individual’s application for a Temporary Resident Permit, depending on your circumstances, it is important to show: remorse and regret for any previous offences that have played a part in their inadmissibility; change in morality and personal character; a specific explanation outlining why you may seek entry into Canada; and proof that you would be a low risk traveler.
