Temporary Resident Status allows you to visit, work or study in Canada. A Temporary Resident Permit in Canada is also called a visitor’s visa, and can be applied for at the border or port of entry.

Whether or not you are able to obtain a Temporary Resident Permit in Canada depends on the individual immigration officer at the border. That’s why all of your documentation and your application must be error and omission free – you don’t want to be denied and have turn around at the border.
A licensed immigration lawyer can help you make sure that your application and documentation are all filled out properly and in order to ensure you have the best chance of success when applying for a Temporary Resident Permit in Canada.
