While “Permanent Residence”(PR) is a requirement for Canadian citizenship, Temporary residency has little to do with citizenship. One cannot go from temporary resident to citizen without first going through another program to get their permanent residence in Canada.
Categories of Temporary Residents are as follows:
· Temporary Student – study permit
· Temporary Worker – work permit
· Temporary Visitor – visitor record
· Temporary Resident Permit holder who require TRP to overcome inadmissibility issues
