1. How can Ukraine immigrants in Canada extend their status?

Ukraine nationals in Canada can extend their status as visitor, student or worker. We at Admission hub help visitors in Canada with a temporary status to convert to student visa. According to IRCC, Visitors who want to pursue a short-term course (6 months long or less) do not require a study visa or a study permit. Visitors can complete the course on their visitor visa before its expiration.

Upon successful completion of this course you can join for a two year PGWP eligible program and obtain study permit. With this study permit you can work up to 20hrs a week and extend your stay up to 3 years after the studies during which you can obtain your permanent residency in Canada.
