I have my open work permit valid for 2years. so With that do I still have to worry about maintaining a legal status ?? Someone gave me a little bit of information which is kinda bothering me. So just taking out my cover not here.
Thanks a lot and please bear with my post if it sounds too stupid. My apologies.

You are in Canada legally with your OWP so you don't need to worry :)

You have a legal status to stay and work, but if you want to go for a vacation back home you need to apply for a resident visa unless you are from a visa exempt country. CIC will issue visa as per your work permit validity.
