What is Implied Status Video

Posted in Temporary Residence Videos

There are several different circumstances that can lead to implied status in Canada. Many individuals are unfamiliar with what implied status is or what it does. A specific circumstance that often results in implied status is when a foreign national has a permit or visa in Canada that is about to expire but they apply to extend their stay. When they extend their stay and are waiting for a decision to be made on their application, their status will be implied and they will be able to remain in Canada. Watch our video below on what implied status is and whether you can continue your authorized activities in Canada.

What is Implied Status Video

Implied Status is defined as a foreign national being allowed to remain in Canada, even if their previous permit or visa has expired. This is permitted because they are awaiting the decision of a new application or an application to extend their stay. The foreign national, as well as any of their family members, may continue residing in Canada under the same conditions set out in their expired permit or visa until they receive a decision on their new application. The permits and visas that this often applies to are work permits, study permits, and/or visitor visas. It is important to note that one does not have to apply for implied status. However, you do have to apply for a new application for a permit or visa. Subsequently, the foreign national will gain implied status when applying for an extension or a new application. Therefore, the implied status is automatically obtained once they submit the new application, even though their current permit or visa has expired. Once they have received a decision on their new application, their implied status will expire.
