Temporary Immigration

Temporary immigration to Canada applies principally to persons wishing to establish themselves in Canada for a limited time in order to visit the country, study, work or receive medical treatment.

A person who has completed a temporary stay in Canada as a student or worker may then apply for permanent residence under the Canadian Experience Class. This category applies to temporary workers and students who have obtained professional Canadian qualifications, who are already in Canada and who wish to make a request for permanent residence.
