requirements. There are four categories of temporary visas as set out below. In
some instances you may change your temporary status while in Canada. To find out
about entering Canada on a temporary basis, please read more or contact our offices

STUDYING IN CANADA
We can help you arrange your visit to Canada to study at one of Canada’s top universities
or colleges. During your studies or following graduation from a post-secondary program
you may be eligible to work in Canada.
WORKING IN CANADA
Most people who wish to work in Canada require a work permit as well as a job offer
from an employer. In many instances you may be eligible to work in Canada on a temporary
basis while awaiting finalization of your permanent resident application. We can
assist you in that regard. In some instances spouses of work permit holders may
also be eligible to work in Canada. Currently there are several labour shortages
in Canada so that changes have been made to expedite the process for bringing foreign
workers to Canada. We can provide you with more information.
Many visitors to Canada require permission to visit. We can arrange your application
for a temporary resident visa. You may apply for a single entry to Canada or, in
certain circumstances, you may be eligible for a visa that will allow you multiple
entries. Once in Canada, in most instances you will be eligible to stay as a temporary
resident for a period of six months. A temporary resident visa will not allow you
to work or study in Canada.
TEMPORARY RESIDENT PERMITS
This form of document allows an individual to enter Canada on a temporary basis
when there are criminal or medical concerns and there is an exceptional reason to
allow the entry.
