Help Centre what do you need help with?

My work permit has expired. Can I apply for another one?

Yes, but you can only do this if your permit expired fewer than 90 days ago. You also need to restore your temporary status in Canada.

Since you need to apply to restore your status after it has expired, you can’t work while this application is in progress.

When you apply:

You can apply from within Canada.

International Experience Canada participants: To restore your status, you must be eligible to extend your work permit. See Extend or change your work permit - International Experience Canada.
