How do I know the expiry date of my temporary resident status?
1. Temporary residents travelling with passports:
When you arrived in Canada and gave your passport to the officer, they authorized your stay by placing a stamp in your passport and/or issuing an additional document. Check your passport. If you find a stamp, it should look like one of these.
For example, if the officer specified a date as shown in the above illustration, your temporary resident status would expire on June 30th, 1993. If there is no stamp, a handwritten date or document in your passport, your temporary resident status will expire six months from the day you arrived in Canada. If you were given a visitor record, student or work permit, the expiry date is marked on the document. The document illustrated below is a Canadian temporary resident visa. It is always issued outside of Canada. It allows you to travel to Canada but it does not give you temporary resident status.
Note for applicants who require a TRV to enter Canada: A renewal of a study or work permit does not affect your TRV. It is your responsibility to ensure your TRV remains valid if you wish to leave and re-enter Canada. You must apply for and obtain a TRV outside of Canada.
2. Temporary Residents travelling without passports:
If you did not require a passport to enter Canada, your temporary resident status will expire six months from the day you entered Canada unless you were given a visitor record, student or work permit. If you were given a document, the expiry date is marked on it.
