Present statistic measures the number of temporary residents with a valid document on December 1st of the observation year. A temporary resident who has been granted permanent resident status on or before the observation date (December 1) is excluded from the count from their grant date onwards. Temporary residents are grouped according to the principal reason for residing in Canada during the calendar year.

Note: numbers appearing in the “not stated” and “other” categories reflect operational adjustments to CIC’s administrative data files and are currently under review.
