This section contains policy, procedures and guidance used by IRCC staff. It is posted on the department’s website as a courtesy to stakeholders.

January 5, 2022

The term “implied status” has been updated to the correct term “maintained status”. In addition, the instructions clarify that it is temporary resident status that is restored. Authorization to study or work can only be restored if it was held at the time of loss of status.
