If your permit expires but you keep meeting the requirements of your stay and you respect the conditions of your study permit, you may apply to restore your status as a student.
If you want to keep studying in Canada, you must:
- apply for a new study permit
- apply to restore your temporary resident status in Canada
- pay your fees
How you restore your status depends on how long your status has been expired:
- It’s been less than 90 days since your status expired.
- It’s been more than 90 days since your status expired.
If it’s been more than 90 days since it expired, you can only apply to restore your status until August 31, 2021.
Friendly tip: you can stay in Canada while you await a decision
