Restoration of Status in Canada
Have you come to Canada as a visitor, worker or student and have lost your status in Canada ? Some reasons you may have potentially lost status include:
- you are no longer attending college or university for which you received the Study Permit for
- you are no longer working for the employer for which your received your Work Permit for
- stayed longer then your authorized stay
If this is your situation, you still may be eligible to restore your status as a temporary resident if you have not been out of status for more than 90 days and have complied with the conditions of your work or study permit or visitor visa status. So you have the option restore, extend or change your status while maintaining implied status. For example, if you came as visitor and wish to study now in Canada, you can change the condition of your application as long as you do it within 90 days.
If you submit your application for restoration prior to the cut-off 90 day mark you will be on implied status, this means that the status you are applying for is yours until a decision is made on the application. So if you are here as a visitor and you are applying to extend your stay, you can remain in Canada under the implied status until a decision is made on the application. At the same time if a Work Permit or Study Permit is expired and you submit this application, you are still able to work and study in Canada until a decision is made on the extension.
If the 90 days have passed and you like to apply for restoration, you still can, however you have lost the ability to have an implied status. This means you cannot work or study in Canada until a decision is rendered. If you receive a negative decision, you are given a day in which you are supposed to depart Canada, if decide not to leave and have overstayed your welcome stay, this can have serious consequences in the future when planning to enter Canada. This can end up in departure, deportation or exclusion order depending on your situation. Exit Canada on time to avoid applying for an Authorization to Return to Canada (ARC) in the future, these application are not easily approved therefore exit on time to avoid future problems.
