Extend your study permit in Canada

A study permit allows an individual to study in Canada for a specific program or college with a specific period after which they must leave Canada. The expiry date is based on the period of the program, plus 90 days. The additional 90 days are provided to the individual to leave or extend their stay in Canada.

When to apply?

If you are willing to continue to study, it is compulsory to extend your study permit 30 days prior to its expiration date. It is crucial to look into the following aspects:

  • Ensure your passport doesn’t expire at the same time; as the extension of your study permit will not be allowed beyond the expiry date of your passport
  • You can study under the same study permit conditions only if you apply for extension before it expires, as long as you stay in Canada

In case your study permit has expired and you still wish to continue to study, you will need to apply for a new study permit and restore your temporary resident status in Canada
