Hi All

Apologies in advance as I have really no knowledge on Work Permits and extension just asking for someone. My cousin work permit (PGWP) is expiring on Feb 04, 2019. She was unable to apply due to some unseen circumstances can she apply now ? is there any dead line to file the work permit extension application.

She was initially issued only 1.5 WP because of her passport expiry.

Appreciate your help in advance

Thanks
All the details for WP extension is mentioned here.
https://www.canada.ca/en/immigration-refugees-citizenship/services/work-canada/permit/temporary/extend.html
Bottom line : Apply before your WP expiry date -Even if it expires you can work on implied status but if go out of the country you will loose work rights Worst case : If the work permit is expired even then one can be apply up to 90 days as restoration of status in Canada. But you loose work rights.

Better apply the WP extension as early as possible so that after 4th Feb your cousin can work under implied status

Thanks for your answer.

Just for clarification once she applied work permit she suppose to apply for restoration status separately? or once applied she don't need to apply restoration status ?

Thanks again

If she applies before WP expiry date no need for the restoration application. It is only applicable is WP is expired and there is no in progress application for WP extension.
Details here:

Restoration is only applicable if:
you are still in Canada and:

  • your permit expired before you applied for
    • a new work permit
    • a study permit
    • to stay in Canada as a visitor
  • you didn’t respect the conditions of your permit

I tried to search online but couldnt find right way to apply for extension. Do you know by chance can I apply online for extension or only I need to file paper based application. What is the right form to be filled out ?

Thanks for your help
