Getting Help Applying For Temporary Status In Canada
Temporary status means that you are allowed to come and stay in Canada for a short period of time. In Canadian immigration, there are a number of reasons you may want to pursue temporary status in Canada. The Canadian government through immigration Canada has created a number of avenues for individuals from foreign countries to obtain temporary status. It is important to apply using the correct temporary status category and complete the applications correctly.
Temporary status permits options:
- Study Permits
- Work Permits
- Temporary Resident Visas (Includes Visitors Visa (these require an invitation letter))
- Temporary Foreign Worker Program
Please note that with respect to invitation letters, we are able to notarize any letter that you draft. Alternatively, to ensure that the letter meets all the Immigration Canada requirements, we can draft the invitation letter for you.
