How Can I Extend My Temporary Status in Canada?

Canada immigration consultants in Delhi NCR

The Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship, Canada extends several options allowing temporary residents to live in Canada, even when they are waiting for a decision on their Permanent Residence and Temporary Residence. For instance, through maintained status, the temporary residents who have applied for another temporary status do not have to leave Canada even if their documents expire before IRCC’s decision on the same. Another one is the Bridging Open Work Permit through which the temporary residents who are facing the end of their visa validity can apply for permanent residency. Canada immigration consultants in Delhi NCR are well-versed with the whole procedure of how temporary residents can extend their temporary status in Canada.

Let us find out all about the ways in which temporary residents can extend their temporary status.

Work Permits 

The Canadian Work Permits are broadly categorized into two categories:

  1. Labour Market Impact Assessment (LMIA)
  2. LMIA Exempt

The purpose of the LMIA exempt work permits is to extend support to Canadian interests. This category includes open work permits that allow visa holders to work from anywhere and for any employer in Canada. Most temporary foreign workers in Canada have LMIA-exempt work permits.

Bridging Open Work Permit 

This allows some permanent residency applicants to live in Canada even after the expiration of their temporary status. For BOWP, the following immigration programs are eligible:

  • Canadian Experience Class
  • Provincial Nominee Program
  • Federal Skilled Trades Program
  • Federal Skilled Worker Program
  • Agri-Food Pilot Program
  • Quebec Skilled Workers

Your Canada PR Visa consultants in Delhi can help you in understanding how these immigration pathways can be put to use in extending your temporary resident status in Canada.

Study Permit 

If your financial situation allows, applying for a study permit can also allow you to stay in Canada. With this, you will also be able to work part-time during your academic session and during your scheduled breaks, you can work full-time. Once you are done with your program, you become eligible for PGWP. This can open immigration pathways of permanent residence which are made for international student graduates.

PGWP – Post-Graduation Work Permit 

This is another option to stay in Canada exclusively for international student graduates. For students who have completed their post-secondary program at any of the eligible Designated Learning Institutions (DLI). This doesn’t tie the holder to a single employer or a single occupation i.e. this is an open work permit. The study programs that exceed eight months but are shorter than two years are eligible for a PGWP which matches the duration of their program.
