What is a Temporary Resident Permit?

A Temporary Resident Permit (TRP) allows one to enter Canada under the status of either a visitor, student, or worker. In the event that you are deemed inadmissible into Canada, you can apply for the Temporary Resident Permit

If you have a past criminal conviction, the experts at EEP conduct a criminality assessment and determine whether or not you would be inadmissible to enter Canada. Once we complete your criminality assessment, we determine if you are eligible for a criminal rehabilitation application. However, only an expert immigration consultant can help you with this. A positive result on such an application would clear the criminal inadmissibility issue which prevents you from entering Canada. In cases where you are found to be inadmissible, EEP can apply for a temporary permit for you.

If, before you start your travel to Canada, you are concerned about being rejected on these grounds, the professionals at our firm can first conduct a criminality assessment and then prepare an application package which you can present to an immigration officer when you enter Canada. You must be from a visa-exempt country in order to make an in-person applying for a TRP.
