During the application process, you may find that you are barred from entering Canada because of an inadmissibility or a failure to meet Immigration requirements.
Sometimes, you may still qualify for a temporary resident permit.
A TRP may be appropriate for a foreigner who is inadmissible on the ground of criminality, and not yet eligible for rehabilitation. A TRP may be issued if:
- The offense was minor;
- There are no more than two convictions;
- There is no pattern of criminal behaviour;
- All sentences have been completed; and
- There is a high probability that you will not commit any further offenses.
A TRP may also be issued for those inadmissible on health grounds if:
- Treatment is unavailable in the home country;
- The cost of treatment;
- How the medical costs will be covered.
A TRP will remain valid until:
- It is cancelled;
- The permit holder leave Canada without obtaining prior authorization to re-enter Canada;
- The period of validity in the permit expires; or
- A period of three years elapses.
We have experience with applications for temporary residence permits.
As well, it is important to note that if the terms of a temporary residence permit are complied with, then the individual may become eligible for permanent residence.
