Help Centre what do you need help with?

Can I keep working if my permit expires? How do I prove this to my employer?

Yes, if you applied to extend or change your work permit before your work permit expired, you

  • have maintained your status
  • are authorized to work until we finalize your application

You must stay in Canada and continue working under the same conditions as your original work permit. For example, if you have an employer-specific work permit, you must still work for the employer named on that permit.

If your employer needs proof you can keep working, there are documents you can show them.
