The three primary pathways to obtain a temporary resident visa are:

    • Work Permit: There are several types of work permits, with or without a Labor Market Impact Assessment (LMIA) requirement. These permits can be closed or open, as is the case for the Working Holiday Vis
    • Study Permit: for international students to study at a designated learning institution in Canada. This permit can lead to obtaining temporary resident status.
    • Visitor Visa: You are considered a temporary resident while visiting Canada. In most cases, you will need a visa for non-resident to obtain a to enter Canada.
