As an international student, you’re expected to apply for a study permit renewal before your current permit expires. We recommend that you apply three to four months before your current permit expires. If your study permit expires before you apply for an extension, you will be out of status and must stop studying immediately.
- Review the information by Canadian immigration on renewing and extending study permits.
- Choose if you are applying online or by paper. We recommend online applications because you save time, avoid courier fees and receive updates.
