IRCC to modify instructions for temporary resident permit (TRP) for victims of family violence

On April 8, 2021, Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) published and updated the instructions for Temporary Resident Permits (TRPs) regulations for victims of family violence. Applicants or their designates can now send a family violence TRP application to the closest local IRCC office by mail. Earlier such applications were processed only in the Case Processing Centre in Edmonton. The new procedure may improve the processing of these urgent cases. IRCC also updated instructions for officers regarding assessing TRP eligibility when PR applications have not yet been submitted. #TRP, #IRCC, #family_violence, #immigration_policy
