Renewals and Replacement of Documents

Renew or Replace a Permanent Resident card

Permanent Residents must have a valid permanent resident card or permanent resident travel document to return to Canada. Your PR card must be valid when you show it to a border officer. If your permanent resident is expired or will expire in less than 9 months, you can apply for a new card. Most PR cards have valid for 5 years.

Renew or Replace a Study/Work Permit

Study Permit

The expiry date on your study permit lets you know when you must stop studying and leave Canada. If you want to extend your study permit, you must apply to extend your study permit at least 30 days before it expires. Your study permit will expire on the date marked on the permit OR 90 days after the day you complete your studies, whichever comes first.

Work Permit

If you have a work permit that is about to expire or need to make changes to it, you need to apply to extend it or change conditions on it. 
You can apply for an extension if:

  • Want to extend your work permit
  • Need to make changes to the conditions on your work permit 
  • Your job is extended
  • There are changes to your current job (change in pay, new responsibilities)
  • You are offered a different job
  • You want to work for a new employer

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!!
