Work permit extensions are required when your work permit is about to expire or you need to change it for some reason. You need to extend the permit or change the conditions included. It is usually recommended to apply for the extension at least 30 days before the expiry date of the work permit. Check the expiry date on your passport because you cannot extend the work permit beyond the passport’s expiry date. Also, you will be legally allowed to stay in Canada if you apply for the extension before the permit expires.
