Renewing Your Study Permit
A valid Study Permit is required to continue your studies in Canada. You should begin the process to renew your Study Permit one to three months before it expires. You should never let your Study Permit expire: it is what gives you status and allows you to stay in Canada.
To be eligible:
- You must be a registered student at a post secondary institution in Canada or be accepted to continue your studies in the next academic semester
To apply for a Study Permit Renewal:
- You must apply to Citizenship and Immigration Canada (CIC)
- You can apply online or by mail
