Humanitarian and compassionate consideration in Canada: Positive Stage 1 assessment – Interim documentation
This section contains policy, procedures and guidance used by Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada staff. It is posted on the Department’s website as a courtesy to stakeholders.
Applicants who have received a positive Stage 1 assessment may be eligible for interim status pending the finalization of their application, including a study or work permit as follows:
Temporary resident status
Temporary resident status may be extended as long as there is no known inadmissibility. An extension of one year should be sufficient.
When a person has lost temporary resident status, it may be possible to recommend restoration of that status.
A study permit may be issued (R215(g)). Applicants may request a study permit by completing an Application to Change Conditions, Extend My Stay or Remain in Canada as a Student (IMM 5709 (PDF, 572 KB) (PDF, 488.83KB)).
Temporary Resident Permit (TRP)
Applicants in possession of a TRP may apply for a new TRP.
