Temporary resident permits: Work and study permits
This section contains policy, procedures and guidance used by IRCC staff. It is posted on the department’s website as a courtesy to stakeholders.
When an application for a TRP is received, an officer may consider issuing
- a work permit to a TRP holder if the TRP is valid for at least six months under subsection 199(d) of the Immigration and Refugee Protection Regulations;
- a study permit to a TRP holder or their family members if the TRP is valid for at least six months, and they meet the requirements applicable to foreign nationals seeking a study permit under subsection R215(e) of the IRPR.
Note: When an application for a TRP is submitted at the same time and place as an application for a work permit and/or a study permit, the TRP is fee exempt (see subsection R298(2) of the IRPR). However, the applicant must pay the work or study permit fee.
