I Applied To Extend My Work Permit – Can I Travel Outside Of Canada?

My work permit will expire on March 30, 2016, and I have applied to extend my work permit.  I would like to leave Canada on holiday on March 30th and return on April 15th. Will I have a problem re-entering Canada?

You should be very careful in this situation.  You have not indicated when you applied to extend your work permit, nor provided details regarding your current work permit and your new work permit application.  In your situation, if you leave the country, you would also not have the benefit of implied status.   Generally, I would recommend remaining in Canada until the new work permit is issued.  You should consult with our immigration consultants to obtain detailed advice before leaving Canada.
