What happens after someone loses their Canadian PR status?

For instance, in a situation where a Canadian PR voluntarily renounces their status, they will become a temporary resident in Canada for six months unless either of the following two instances occurs:

  • The individual renouncing their Canadian PR status applies to do so directly at a Canadian port of entry
  • The individual renouncing their Canadian PR status is not physically present in Canada on the day that their application for temporary residence is approved

Understanding the details of permanent residence in Canada can be confusing. However, retaining an immigration lawyer can make things a lot easier. Immigration law professionals can:

  • Help prepare an application
  • Ensure applicants avoid mistakes
  • Respond on an applicant’s behalf to the Canadian government
  • Use their expertise to avoid unnecessary delays throughout the different application steps and application processing
