Normally, persons who do not meet the requirements of the Immigration and Refugee Protection Act are refused permanent resident or temporary resident visas abroad, denied entry at a port of entry, or refused processing within Canada. However, in some cases, there may be compelling reasons for an officer to issue a temporary resident permit to allow a person who does not meet the requirements of the Act to enter or remain in Canada
The Act authorizes an officer to issue a permit. The officer must follow any instructions given by the Minister on issuing permits. Permits may be issued, at ports of entry and CIC inland offices while permit extensions are only issued inland.
