Restoration of Status

If a visitor, worker or student has lost their status, they may apply to reinstate or restore their status in accordance with section 182 of the Immigration and Refugee Protection Regulations.

Note: This regulation only applies if the temporary resident has not been out of status for more than 90 days, and they have not failed to comply with the specified conditions.

The applicant must

  • apply within 90 days of having lost their status;

  • meet the initial requirements for their stay;

  • have not failed to comply with any other condition (e.g., working without being authorized to do so);

  • meet the requirements of the class under which they are currently applying to be restored as a temporary resident.

  • have lost their status because they have failed to comply with any of the conditions in Paragraph R185(a) of Immigration, Refugee Protection Regulations (IRPR) 

90 Days Rule

  • Clients who have been refused an extension to their temporary resident status, and were in status (including implied status) until the refusal, have 90 days from the date of the refusal notice to apply for a restoration, if otherwise eligible.

  • Clients who submit an application to renew their status after it has expired, but within the 90-day restoration period, receive a notice from the Case Processing Centre in Vegreville warning them to apply for restoration. Clients have 90 days from the date their status expired to submit their restoration application and corresponding fee.
