How can I extend my stay as a visitor?

If you want to extend your stay in Canada, you should apply at least 30 days before your status expires.

For the steps to apply, see How to apply to extend your stay as a visitor.

Study and work permit holders

If your visitor visa expired and you need to leave and return to Canada, you need to apply for a new visitor visa (not a visitor record).
