Mr. A lost his permanent residence, as he did not meet with the residency obligation of section 28 of the IRPA. As he was a minor, he can apply for a travel document at the nearest Canadian embassy or consulate. The officer reviewing the application will assess if the candidate met with his residency obligation and if there are any humanitarian and compassionate grounds on which a travel document could be issued to Mr. A. In this specific case, Mr. A's failure to meet with the residency obligation was not his own doing, but his parents. Moreover, Mr. A should insist on his desire to stay permanently in Canada, to study, or work and on any existing ties he might have with Canada, such as other family members, etc. The decision to issue a travel document will be at the entire discretion of the immigration authorities. If the application is refused, Mr. A should seek other options to come to Canada, through a study permit per example.
