Help Centre what do you need help with?

I got a new passport after coming to Canada. Will that affect my application for a work permit?

No. However, your work permit cannot be valid for longer than your current passport’s validity. If you renewed your passport after coming to Canada, when you apply for a renewal of your work permit, you must include a photocopy of the new passport.
