Are you a foreign national currently working in Canada with a work permit?
If so, you may need to renew or change the conditions of your permit before it expires. The good news is that you may be able to continue working while Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) processes your application.
At Ansari Immigration, we understand how important it is for you to maintain your legal status in Canada. That's why we are here to help you with the process of renewing or extending your work permit. Our team of experienced immigration consultants can guide you through the application process and ensure that you meet all the requirements.
To renew or extend your work permit, you must submit a new application at least 30 days before your current permit expires. This applies if you want to make changes to the conditions of your work permit, such as a change in pay or new responsibilities. If you have an open work permit, you can extend it as long as you are still eligible to work in Canada.
The application process can be done online, and you will need to have electronic copies of your documents and pay the processing fees. Before you upload your forms, you must answer some questions and create an account so that you can submit your application and check your status. If your application is accepted, you will either get an extension of your current work permit or a new work permit with the new working conditions.
If your work permit expires while IRCC is processing your application, you must determine if you are allowed to keep working. If you applied to extend your work permit and it expires, you have maintained your status and are authorized to work without a permit until a decision is made on your application, as long as you are working under the same conditions as your current or expired permit.
At Ansari Immigration, we recommend that you hire an experienced Canadian immigration lawyer or consultant to assist you with your work permit application. Our consultants will work with you to understand your situation and help you with the application process. We can also provide you with the necessary documentation to prove to your employer that you are eligible to continue working under the same conditions as your original work permit.
Don't risk losing your legal status in Canada. If your work permit is expiring soon or you need to change the conditions of your work permit, contact Ansari Immigration today. Our team of experienced immigration consultants is here to help you.
