Temporary Resident Permit and Extension

A Temporary Resident Permit can be issued to a foreign national who, in the opinion of an officer, is inadmissible or does not meet the requirements of IRPA

​The Temporary Resident Permit is always issued at the discretion of the delegated authority and may be cancelled at any time. The delegated authority will determine whether the need for the:

  • foreign national to enter or remain in Canada is compelling; and
  • foreign national’s presence in Canada outweighs any risk to Canadians or Canadian society.
