Temporary Residence

Last updated: October 4, 2019

People entering Canada on a temporary basis are temporary residents. International students, temporary foreign workers, visitors (tourists) and temporary resident permit holders fall under this definition. The most important aspect of temporary residence status is its temporary nature. Visa officers and CBSA officers scrutinize the temporary aspect of an applicant before approving an application or allowing entry into Canada.

As per Statistics Canada, in 2015, there were around 350,000 temporary foreign workers in Canada. On the other hand, the number of international students is more than 500,000. Add visitors and temporary resident permit holders to the mix and you have around 35 million Canadian temporary residents annually.
