If you are inadmissible to Canada, acquiring a Temporary Resident Permit (TRP) is appealing to many for a variety of reasons, ranging between reuniting with family and overturning an inadmissibility. To qualify for a Temporary Resident Permit, your reason for entering and staying in Canada must be compelling. Shory Law can assist with your application to receive a TRP and guide you legally through the process towards a successful application.

When are Temporary Resident Permits Issued?

The issuance of a Temporary Residence Permit is subject to the discretion of the officer overviewing your case. Officers will consider your reasoning for needing to be in Canada – whether this is job-related, attending an event, or caring for family.

People eligible for a Temporary Resident Permit include those who are:

  • Deemed inadmissible to Canada but have justifiable reason for entering the country
  • Ineligible for restoring to their previous status
  • Unable to meet the requirements set forth in the Immigration and Refugee Protection Act for entering or remaining in Canada

What Does the TRP Assessment Involve?

While assessing your Temporary Resident Permit application, an officer will need to identify both your reason for entering the country and what you will require while staying, mostly in relation to medical treatment. The officer will also identify the reasons you were deemed inadmissible and equate that with the regulations required by the IRPA to allow entry.

In the assessment, you can expect to answer:

  • The purpose for your stay
  • Severity of your criminal offenses or medical conditions, if applicable
  • Remorsefulness, completion of sentencing, and criminal pattern, if applicable
  • Employment history, family composition, and sponsors, if applicable

Usually, the TRP application process must be performed before entry into the country, though there are exceptions.
