What to do to extend your study permit or restore your status in Canada

As an international student in Canada, filing income taxes can be a daunting task. But with a little guidance and preparation, it doesn’t have to be. Here is a guide that provides you an overview.

What to do to extend your study permit or restore your status in Canada

As an international student in Canada, it is crucial to keep your study permit valid at all times. However, if your study permit expires or if you break any of its conditions, you may lose your student status in Canada. If this happens, you won’t be able to study until you restore your status as a student. In this blog, we will discuss what you need to do to extend your study permit or restore your status.

Extend Your Study Permit

If you wish to extend your stay as a student in Canada, you need to apply for a new study permit before your current one expires. You can use the document checklist and guide for extending your stay as a student to ensure you have all the required documents. It’s important to apply at least 30 days before your current study permit expires to avoid losing your status as a student. You can stay in Canada while we process your application, but there’s no guarantee that we’ll approve it.

Restore Your Status

If your study permit has already expired or you broke any of its conditions, you need to restore your status as a student. To do so, you need to apply for a new study permit and restore your temporary resident status in Canada. When you apply, make sure to select “Restore my status” under section 3 of the application form and include a note explaining the reason you need to extend your stay. You must also include the restoration fee of $350, which includes the fee for restoration ($200) and a new study permit ($150).

It’s important to note that if you lost your student status because you didn’t respect the conditions of your study permit, you may not be eligible to restore your status. In this case, you may need to leave Canada and apply for a new study permit from your home country.

Family Members

If your spouse, common-law partner, or dependent children came with you to Canada, they may also need to restore their status. Each family member needs to apply to restore their status and pay the restoration fee.

In conclusion, if you want to continue your studies in Canada, it’s essential to keep your study permit valid and follow its conditions. If your study permit is about to expire or you broke any of its conditions, make sure to extend your study permit or restore your status as soon as possible. Remember, applying early and submitting all required documents and fees can increase your chances of success.
