Restoration of Status: Immigration expert Evelyn Ackah, founder and managing lawyer at Ackah Business Immigration Law

According to Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC), travelers authorized to enter Canada can be admitted within three categories:

  1. visitors
  2. students
  3. workers

In all cases, they are considered “temporary residents”, and are given temporary resident status for a limited and fixed period of time. Failing to adhere to the original conditions of your status can make it impossible for you to apply for a renewal or extension. In some cases, there are ways of restoring your status.

Restoration of status: You may seek restoration within 90 days after your status as a visitor, student or worker has been lost, because you failed to comply with one or more of the following conditions: You remained in Canada longer than the period authorized for your stay (but not longer than 90 days).

The first step towards restoration of status is often getting in touch with a legal expert who can review your particular case, and help you determine the best course of action.
