Validity duration: SP vs TRV

Hi all,

My application for a study permit was approved, and I was issued a TRV until Nov 2019.

I presented an acceptance letter from the Univ of Calgary, which will graduate from in 3 years.

However, I now got a belated acceptance to British Columbia (UBC), which requires 3.5-4 years.

My passport expires in 2021. Will my SP be issued up to Nov 2019? If I show the officer my UBC letter on arrival, will I get an SP valid until 2020?
