Some travel restrictions now apply to foreign nationals who plan to work in Canada. Please review the IRCC Coronavirus Special Measures web page

Foreign nationals who are in Canada and whose temporary resident status will soon expire may apply for an extension to maintain their status.

  • They must have the correct documents to support their extension applications (scholarships/awards, job offers, Labour Market Impact Assessments, etc.)
  • Temporary residents wishing to extend must apply online, meet all requirements, and pay associated fees.

Those who have extension applications currently in process and applied prior to the expiry date of their current permit will have implied status and can remain in Canada until a decision is made on their application.
