Instructions: How to apply extend your study permit
If you have applied for a study permit extension prior to the expiry of your current study permit, you can stay in Canada. You'll have a status referred to as "maintained status," formerly known as "implied status."
Maintained status allows for you to remain in Canada, pending the processing of your application. You will be able to work and study until you receive a decision on your application.
Retain your confirmation of submission of your study permit extension application. This is your proof that you benefit from the provisions of maintained status.
