If your study permit expires and you have not applied to extend your study permit, for a work permit, or to stay in Canada as a visitor, you lose your status as a temporary resident in Canada. You may also lose your status if you do not respect the conditions on your study permit.
In some cases you may apply to restore your status as a student. You must submit your application within 90 days of losing your status. You will be required to adhere to all previous conditions of your study permit, and you will be required to pay fees:
- $200 to restore your status and
- $150 to extend your study permit
You must explain on your application how you lost your status. If any family members have lost their status, they must also apply and pay the necessary fees to have their status restored. You may stay in Canada until a decision is made on your application, but you will not be able to study or work while you wait.
