Temporary Residence

Temporary Residence

A temporary resident is a foreign national who is legally authorized to enter Canada for temporary purposes

We assist clients with:

  • Visitor visas for tourists, parents, and business visitors;
  • Visa-exempt entry for those who do not require visas to enter Canada;
  • Student visas and permits;
  • Work visas and permits supported by Labour Market Impact Assessments (LMIAs)
  • LMIA exempt work visas and permits;

Medical Exams for Temporary Residents

Temporary residents who plan to visit for six months or less generally do not require a medical exam unless they plan to work in certain occupations. Those who plan to visit for more than six months will require a medical exam if they have lived for six or more months in a row in certain countries or territories in the one year immediately before the date, they want to enter Canada, or if they will work in an occupation in which public health must be protected.
