Extending your Study Permit
If you plan to stay in Canada to continue your studies beyond the validity of your current study permit, you will need to apply to extend your study permit. You should begin the process to extend your study permit about three months before its expiry and no more than six months before its expiry.
You need to extend your study permit before the expiration date written on your study permit. Providing you submit your study permit application before the expiration date, you will have ‘implied status’ which means you can continue to study while you wait for a decision.
To learn more about how to extend your study permit, please refer to the Immigration Refugee and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) website. You can extend your study permit online and can check the processing times before submitting your application.
You may also refer to the information sheet on Extending your Study Permit. If you have any questions around this, you can visit the Langara Global office and speak with a licensed immigration advisor.
You need an official letter to confirm your student status at Langara College.
