Hi,

I am considering coming to Canada in March to attend a job fair. I have a temporary resident visa that was issued before I received my COPR.

Do I have to "land" and activate my PR on the visit in March or will I still be allowed to enter using the temporary resident visa? I would rather activate the PR when I land later the year with my family.

Regards,
Paul

1. You can use your TRV visa to visit, just inform the CBSA officer at the Airport that you will be "landing" at a later date.
