Program delivery update: Temporary resident permit (TRP) for victims of family violence

April 8, 2021
Updated instructions are now available for Temporary Resident Permits (TRPs) for victims of family violence.
To help ensure the timely identification and processing of these urgent cases, applicants or their representatives are now asked to mail their family violence TRP application to the closest local IRCC office, rather than to the Case Processing Centre in Edmonton.
Additional updates include:
- Clarified guidelines for officers assessing a foreign national’s eligibility for the TRP, in cases where an application for permanent residence has not yet been submitted.
- Specification that prioritized processing should also be given to any TRP application for which the client or their representative has not used the “FV” code, but which clearly involves a situation of family violence.
