Lost temporary status in Canada

If any of the following apply to you;

  1. You came to Canada on a valid temporary resident visa (TRV) to visit Canada for a temporary purpose such as tourism, visiting family or friends, or business trips, but remained in Canada longer than the period authorized for your tourist stay.

2.    You came to Canada to study temporarily on a valid study permit but remained in Canada longer than the period authorized for your study. Or you changed the type of studies, educational institution, location of studies, or times and periods of studies without applying to change these conditions on your study permit.

3.    You came to Canada to work temporarily on a valid work permit but remained in Canada longer than the period authorized for your work.  Or you changed employers, type of work, or location of work without applying to change these conditions.

Then, you may have lost your status and have committed an offence under Canada’s Immigration and Refugee Protection Act and have not abided by the conditions that were imposed when your entry was authorized.

In such case, you; 

  1. May voluntarily leave Canada; or
  2. Can be subject to an admissibility hearing that could lead to your deportation/removal from Canada.

Can you restore and correct your lost status?

Yes, you may seek restoration of your status, only within a certain period, after your status as a visitor, student or worker has been lost, and you continue to meet the initial requirements for your stay and have not failed to comply with any other conditions imposed.
