Work / Visit

Did you know that Canada welcomes more than 35 million temporary residents each year?  This includes close to 200,000 foreign workers entering Canada each year to work temporarily in jobs that help Canadian employers address skill shortages, or to work as live-in caregivers.

The Immigration and Refugee Protection Act and Immigration Regulations not only cover persons who wish to live in Canada permanently but also those who wish to study and/or work temporarily in Canada and persons who wish to visit. A temporary resident is a person who is lawfully in Canada for a temporary purpose. Temporary residents include students, foreign workers, live in care givers and visitors such as tourists, including business visitors.

Foreign nationals wishing to come to Canada as temporary residents must demonstrate that they will respect the conditions that apply to temporary residents. One of these conditions is that they will voluntarily leave at the end of their visit.

Temporary residents can remain in Canada on a short term basis for a specific purpose.
