Questions about extending my student visa

  1. Hello everyone,

    My student visa will expire on January 2020, because that is the expiry date of my passport. I have my new passport with me and currently, I'm in Canada. I figured out that I need to fill out IMM5709 form but I don't know what to write for some parts.

    Firstly, I was in a different program within the same university and this year I started my new program on their website it says, if the program change was done within the same university so I do not have to declare that.

    1)for Current country of residence part, does it start from the day I arrived in Canada to the day I'm sending the document? Or my expected graduation date?

    2)For the passport number my old passport has my student visa, should I write the new or the old number?

    3)for my national ID, there is an expiry date but, there is no issue date. Should I leave it blank? Because I can't write N/A

    4)For the education history, since I've changed my program, do I need to write my old program in that section or not needed?

    5)Can I sign the document on Adobe like an e-signature would that be a problem?

    6)In required documents part it states that I need to submit my passport photocopies do I need to submit both the new and the old one?

    7)Lastly, I need to submit an immigration document could it be my study permit or something else?

    8)Lastly, how long is the process and where do I need to mail my passport?

    Thanks in advance.
