Temporary status in Canada status expiring  over the coming days and weeks?

As per normal practice, temporary residents in Canada whose status will soon expire can apply for an extension to maintain their temporary resident status in Canada. All in-Canada visitor extension, study permit and work permit applications must be submitted electronically (with some exceptions).In order to maintain status, the application must be complete, including biometrics, fees, and other requirements as applicable.

The application must be received by IRCC before the expiry date of their current temporary resident status.If a temporary resident also applies for renewal of their work or study permit before the expiry of their existing permit, the Regulations authorize them to continue to work or study without a permit under the same conditions as their previous permit, pending a determination of their application for renewal and only as long as the person remains in Canada.

Temporary residents who meet these conditions when applying for an extension of status will benefit from maintained status and may remain in Canada until a decision is rendered on their application; therefore, expedited processing is not required.Please continue to monitor the government website for any updates as this is the fastest and most reliable source of information on how the possible strike may affect IRCC programs and services: Labour disruptions impact at Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada – Canada.ca

The Vital Contribution of Foreign Workers to Canada’s Prosperity


Canada, known for its vast landscapes, rich cultural diversity, and strong economy, has long been a magnet for immigrants and foreign workers seeking opportunities and a better quality of life. In recent years, the role of foreign workers in Canada has become increasingly significant, contributing not only to the country’s economic growth but also to its social fabric. In this article, we will explore the vital contribution of foreign workers to Canada and how their presence has shaped the nation.

Economic Impact

Foreign workers have played a crucial role in driving Canada’s economic success. They fill labor gaps in various industries, such as agriculture, construction, healthcare, and technology, where there is a shortage of skilled workers. This allows businesses to thrive and expand, ultimately contributing to the country’s economic prosperity.

The Temporary Foreign Worker Program (TFWP) and the International Mobility Program (IMP) are two essential pathways that facilitate the entry of foreign workers into Canada. These programs enable employers to hire foreign workers to meet their labor needs, ensuring that businesses can operate efficiently and remain competitive in the global market.

Cultural Diversity and Social Enrichment

Canada’s multicultural identity is one of its defining characteristics, and foreign workers have played a significant role in shaping this identity. The infusion of diverse cultures, languages, and traditions has enriched Canadian society in numerous ways. Foreign workers bring their unique perspectives and experiences, fostering cultural exchange and understanding.

Furthermore, the presence of foreign workers has created vibrant communities that celebrate a wide array of traditions and cuisines. This cultural diversity enhances the overall quality of life in Canada, making it a more exciting and dynamic place to live.

Contributions to Healthcare and Essential Services

The COVID-19 pandemic highlighted the critical role of foreign workers in Canada’s healthcare system and essential services. Many foreign-born healthcare professionals, including doctors, nurses, and caregivers, have been on the frontlines, providing care and support to Canadians during these challenging times. Their dedication and expertise have been instrumental in the country’s response to the pandemic.

In addition to healthcare, foreign workers have also made significant contributions to other essential sectors such as agriculture, food processing, and logistics. Their work ensures a stable supply of food and goods to Canadian households, reinforcing the nation’s resilience during crises.

Pathways to Permanent Residency

Canada recognizes the value of foreign workers and offers pathways for them to become permanent residents. Programs like the Express Entry system and Provincial Nominee Program (PNP) allow foreign workers with the right skills and experience to transition to permanent residency. This not only rewards their contributions but also strengthens Canada’s workforce for the long term.


Foreign workers are an integral part of Canada’s success story, driving economic growth, enriching the country’s cultural fabric, and playing essential roles in healthcare and essential services. Their contributions are not only valuable but also a testament to Canada’s commitment to inclusivity and diversity. As Canada continues to embrace foreign workers, it remains a beacon of opportunity and prosperity for people from all corners of the world.
