What Is the Canada Express Entry System?

As per Canada immigration laws, an individual from any international territory or country is eligible to work in Canada temporarily through the work permit. Given below are 4 instances where the worker is required to extend or modify his/her work permit:

  1. When the job profile of the individual has changed or the contract period is increased, he/she is required to apply for an extension or change in work permit conditions before the permit expires.
  2. When the individual gets a new job, a fresh application should be submitted for a new work permit.
  3. When the worker intends to live and work in Canada permanently, he/she should follow existing rules for the application of Canada’s permanent residence.
  4. When the worker leaves Canada temporarily, he/she is given permission to arrange for their work permit extension, in order to resume work on return to Canada. Following are possible outcomes for an individual’s work permit:
  • The worker permit extension is under process, the individual should enter Canada as a visitor and would not be allowed to work until processing is complete.
  • The permit extension is accepted, and the worker can work immediately on entering Canada.
  • The work permit extension is rejected, and the worker applies for a new work permit.
