Temporary residents: Loss of status

This section contains policy, procedures and guidance used by Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada staff. It is posted on the Department’s website as a courtesy to stakeholders.

Foreign nationals lose their temporary resident (TR) status (A47):

  • at the end of the period for which they were authorized to remain in Canada;
  • on a determination by an officer or the Immigration Division that they have failed to comply with any other requirement of the Act; or
  • on cancellation of their temporary resident permit (TRP).

Note: Holders of the Parent and Grandparent Extended Stay Temporary Resident Visa (Super Visa) also lose their status if they stay beyond their authorized period.
