Study Permit Extension
This program is for international students who are currently studying in Canada and whose study permit is about to expire, to apply for an extension to continue their studies in Canada. The extension will be granted based on the approval of the student's study plan and the compliance with the conditions of the initial study permit.
Are you looking to renew your study permit in Canada?
A study permit enables international students to study at a school in Canada. Family members can also apply for visas to accompany an international student to Canada. The spouse or partner may receive an open work permit, allowing them to work for any Canadian employer, and dependent children may receive a study permit to study at Canadian elementary and secondary schools.
We recommend students to start applying for extension early, as it may take up to 4 months for the Canadian government to approve your visa. While waiting for your new study permit, you may not leave Canada.
Do you have a study permit that is about to expire? You can apply for a Study Permit Extension if:
It is at least 30 days before your Study Permit is about to expire and,
Your passport does not expire at the same time as your Study Permit; you can not extend your Study Permit beyond your passport's expiry date.
If you apply before your permit expires, you can stay in Canada under the same conditions as your current study permit, until a decision is made.
You should also apply to extend your study permit if you plan to travel outside Canada and your permit will expire while you’re traveling.

How It Works
- 1Create An Account
Create an account and either check your eligibility, or pick an application to start. We start by asking questions specific to the visa to ensure your eligibility. This can be quick and simple, such as for visitor visas, or may require entering multiple questionnaires. If you have any questions, there are no fees to contact our immigration experts by email, WeChat, WhatsApp or by booking a call.
- 2Confirmation Before Payment
Our immigration consultants will check your answers and double-check your profile to confirm you meet the minimum requirements of a program. Only if you are eligible will we move you to the payment stage. At this time you must pay the SuperVisas fee. We are transparent in our process and pricing, and clearly list all the fees and processing times for your visa. We use Stripe for credit or debit card payment processing, which is secure and encrypted. Government fees are paid later when the completed application is submitted and once we can correctly calculate the various government fees due. It can be complicated, but we guide you through the process.
- 3Complete Your Application Online
Now, you can finish your application. There will be some "tasks", or many, for you to complete depending on your visa, such as entering your education achievements, employment history and/or dependent information. This can take time and will require answering more questionnaires and uploading of documents. Our system ensures everything necessary is gathered depending on your specific situation - preventing errors and omissions - while at the same time saving you money. Our immigration experts prepare your application so that your case is best presented to the visa officers. After a final review by you, and by our experts, your application will be submitted! You will have peace of mind that only comes with a complete and accurate application.
- 4Approval and Renewals
We will notify you when your visa is approved! We securely store your immigration documents for 7 years and will provide you alerts well before any expiry dates. Renewing visas or taking the next step down the immigration pathway toward citizenship is easy when all your immigration history is in one place. We also understand that moving to a new country can be difficult and hard to navigate. If needed, we will provide guides and referrals to our affiliate partners to help.
