Q: Is it possible for a work permit to expire later than a contract?

My contract expires within a month, but my work permit and residence permit are valid till September. Is this normal? I've been having some suspicion! Thanks in advance.

The work permit expiring after the contract ends is pretty normal.

 

Usually, your contract will start the day you arrive but it takes some time for the RP / WP stuff to be processed. The WP won't be backdated, it will start on the day it's approved and processed so if it took 3 weeks for that to happen your 12 month WP will expire 3 weeks after your 12 month contract. If it took your employer a week to submit the application it would be 4 weeks after your contract ends.

 

It's not a bad thing though, if your RP expired the same day your contract ended you'd need to either leave the country the same day or get a tourist visa extension so you don't end up being an overstayer.

I see from another 'question' of yours you were interested in finding out how to "rat' on other foreign workers - how did that pan out ?

A:No, I wasn't saying Trudeau is a doctor. I'm forgetting this is a forum read by people with differing levels of English ability - my bad - I know the use of analogies can confuse some people so for those readers who somehow think my point was about Trudeau being a doctor I'll re-phrase it. 1. There's an emergency situation requiring action to deal with that emergency. 2. Someone (Trudeau in this case, acting under the advice of medical professionals) takes action, it's not convenient for anyone but there isn't a choice, something has to be done to stop the emergency becoming even worse. 3. The actions seem to work, the emergency situation is contained for now but there's no way of knowing if it's permanent, or if the emergency situation will become a serious threat again. 4. Trudeau tells people it's safe to ease back on those actions now, but if the emergency situation does become serious a threat again they may need to take action again to deal with it. 5. For extra clarity.....   * emergency situation ; in this case refers to the covid pandemic.   * action ; refers to covid measures. This seems like a simple, common sense process to me and one that could be (and is) applied to most emergency situations.   -- Stiggs
