While COVID-19 has caused havoc on the world and travel restrictions prevent some clients from returning home, it is important that foreign nationals in Canada on a Temporary Resident Permit or as a Visitor comply with the conditions of their permit as outlined in the Immigration and Refugee Protection Regulations (IRPR) s. 183.

Noncompliance with conditions could lead to removal actions and future applications being denied.

A temporary resident must apply to extend their period of authorized stay before it ends. If they have done so, their period of authorized stay as a temporary resident is extended by law until a decision is made [R183(5)]. Such a person is considered to have implied status as a temporary resident during that period.

If a temporary resident applies for renewal of their work or study permit and their permit expires before a decision is made, paragraph 186(u) and s. 189 of the Immigration and Refugee Protection Regulations (IRPR) (the right to continue working or studying under the same conditions pending a determination of their application for renewal) apply only as long as the person remains in Canada.

Clients who’s conditions have expired can apply for Restoration of the Temporary resident status within ninety (90) days of the present permit expiring as outlined in the Immigration and Refugee protection Regulations, IRPR s. 182.

Contact us at [email protected] or by phone at: (289) 389-0922 to assess your situation and determine if an extension is required. We look forward to assisting you.

At the time of this writing, it has been two (2) weeks since the Government of Canada shut our borders and implemented travel restrictions to stem the spread of COVID-19.

Cancellations of scheduled in-person permanent resident landings, medical and biometric collection and citizenship ceremonies are slowly being rescheduled. Extensions of ninety (90) day’s have been given.

Clients are expected to comply with any requests given to them by Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship IRCC within that time. Clients that are unable to complete these requests due to country conditions are expected to notify IRCC in writing and request an extension of time to comply. Any persons presently in Canada must maintain a legal status.

The centralized network is still up and running, the call center is accepting calls but is operating with reduced staff. Therefore waiting times have been extended. All inquires can be made through the Case Specific Inquiry https://www.cic.gc.ca/english/contacts/web-form.asp.
Removals by The Canada Border Service Agency, CBSA are on pause until further notice and Flag polling is discouraged.

Thanks to Charlene I recently became a Permanent Resident of Canada. She is incredibly caring and made this long and tiring process seem like something achievable (even through this pandemic). The process of application and all the waiting was much more bearable thanks to her and her open communication and words of support. From the bottom of my heart, thank you. I would not be here without you!

– Aura Carreño

Charlene and team are professional, communicative and quick to respond to all inquiries. Was a pleasure working with Charlene! We turned to professional help and she made the Perm Residence Process a breeze, assembled everything and sent off a professional package that we felt confident in and in turn, it took a huge load off of our mind. She is competent, thorough, and answers all questions. Would highly recommend!!
