Update to the instructions on temporary residents with implied status
Clarifications have been made to the instructions on implied status. This incorporates the Federal Court decision of De Brito v. Canada (Minister of Citizenship and Immigration), which states that a person remains on implied status until a decision is made on their application, even if they depart Canada. This will assist officers at ports of entry in determining whether a client with implied status who is from a visa-required country has the right to re-enter Canada without a visa following a visit solely to the United States or to St. Pierre and Miquelon.
