I realize that it all sounds very restrictive (and it is), you have to remember that once you're on Canadian soil, you can get most of the rights and privileges that a Canadian gets including health care while your "legal/illegal" status is figured out through the courts.

We've got a ton of "non-status" people in the country who we can't deport because their cases/appeals haven't finished, but to whom we have to provide the basic of Canadian rights (food, housing, healthcare, legal aid, etc.)

Visitor permits are easy to get, permits to live and work here....not so much.
