Temporary Resident Permit Holder Class is a de facto form of Humanitarian and Compassionate Application
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. In some cases, however, 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. Temporary resident permits should not be used to restore the temporary resident status of a visitor, student or worker when their status has expired.
This permit may be issued between 1 day to the maximum 3 years of period. In order to qualify, the person can not have a break in between the residency in Canada without the first obtaining the authorization to do so. No family members can be included as part of this permanent resident application. They will have to submit applications of their own.
