However, the process of obtaining permanent residency in Canada can be a timely process and often applicants would like to either stay in Canada or visit Canada prior to officially obtaining their permanent residency.

What is Dual Intent Video

In most cases, dual intent is often thought to be contradictory. However, there is a reason for dual intent. Dual intent is defined as having a permanent residency application in process but also applying for temporary status. Essentially, the applicant would then indicate an intention to reside in Canada permanently but also temporarily, both at the same time. An example of dual intent is when an applicant is waiting for the results of their permanent residency application and they would like to visit Canada for a short period. Therefore, they then apply for a Temporary Resident Visa or apply for an Electronic Travel Authorization, if they are from a visa-exempt country. This intention is actually acceptable so long as the applicant intends on leaving Canada at the end of their authorized period of stay. Keep in mind, the same circumstance applies for applicants who would like to work or study in Canada while they await the decision of their permanent residency application.
