Temporary Resident Permit

A Temporary Resident Permit allows deemed inadmissible foreign nationals to enter or stay in Canada. Generally, if someone is admissible to Canada, they’re not allowed to enter the country. However, if they can provide a justified reason to enter Canada, their criminal or medical inadmissibility can be covered by a Temporary Resident Permit.

Understanding Inadmissibility before your TRP Application

A person can be deemed inadmissible for several reasons:

  • Criminal Activities like being involved in money laundering, smuggling, driving under the influence of a substance
  • Security Causes like violence, espionage, terrorism, war crimes etc.
  • Medical causes like endangering public health and safety.
  • Lack of financial support 
  • Misrepresentation of Data
  • Non-compliance with any provision of IRPA (This included not maintaining your residency status respectfully)
  • Being related to a family member who is inadmissible
