Temporary Immigration in Canada

Thousands of people enter Canada each year who want to stay in the country on a temporary basis. You may wish to become a temporary resident of Canada for a number of reasons, including to study at a Canadian educational institution, to offset the skill scarcity in various Canadian industries, or just to visit and enjoy this beautiful country. Chaudhary Law Services can provide essential assistance when you are putting together your application for temporary residence.

In Canada, temporary residence status refers to individuals who come to the country for a set period of time to study, work, or visit:

 A work permit gives you permission to enter Canada for a job. While certain exceptions exist, in most cases foreign workers need a work permit to be eligible to work in Canada. A work permit allows qualified workers, including business owners, students, and other temporary workers, to seek legal residence in Canada for the purpose of employment.

A study permit is a type of Temporary Resident status. This permit allows you to study in Canada for a temporary period of time exceeding six months. A study permit will usually indicate the educational institution you are attending as well as your course of study. You must meet certain requirements to qualify for a study permit in Canada

You may also need to apply for a Temporary Resident Visa (TRV) if you are not from an ETA-approved country and you would like to visit family or friends, enter Canada for business, or travel via Canada on your way to a permanent destination. A visitor visa shows that you meet the requirements for admission to Canada.
