Extending Work/Study/Visitor Visas
People who are temporarily residing in Canada may wish to avail themselves of certain immigration services. For example, people on visitor visas (or other temporary resident visas) must extend their status as a visitor, by filing an application for an extension to the appropriate in-Canada immigration office. If that extension application is refused, an application to restore status may be available for them (also known as “restoration”). However, this can only be done within 90 days of the person being informed that their visitor visa application has been refused.
