Data in the above tables refer to the number of individuals entering Canada as initial entries or re-entries, not the number of documents issued. Initial entry represents the number of temporary residents identified as entering Canada for the first time. Initial entries are calculated as of the earliest effective date of any valid permit issued to a temporary resident. Re-entry represents the number of temporary residents who have a new permit issued abroad or at a port of entry during the observed calendar year. Temporary residents are grouped according to the principal reason for residing in Canada during the calendar year.
