If an individual is inadmissible to Canada, due to criminal, security or medical reasons, but requires entry to Canada, they may be eligible for a Temporary Resident Permit Canada (TRP). Kindly note that the following information is not about Temporary Resident Visas (TRV), commonly referred to as a Canadian Visitor Visa.A TRP allows an individual to overcome their inadmissibility for a specified reason and for a specific period of time. The applicant is required to demonstrate there is a significant reason they must enter Canada. A person who is criminally inadmissible to Canada, is inadmissible for work, study, visitation purposes and is prohibited from submitting an application for Canadian permanent residence. A Temporary Resident Permit will help an inadmissible person gain entry to Canada, though only on temporary grounds. In other words, a TRP can only be used for entry to Canada as a foreign worker, foreign student or as a visitor but not for any permanent residency processes.
