Default Daughters study permit

We recently made a trip to the border to renew our temporary visas. Because our oldest daughter was turning 18 in a few weeks, the officer wouldn’t give her a new study permit and said she would have to apply online for one and just gave her a new visitors visa for a year. I applied online as soon as she was 18, also had to wait until schools reopened to get a letter from them, sent them off and am still waiting. Question is, is she ok to attend school while we’re waiting? It’s the final grade, so pretty important. Does she have implied status while she’s waiting? This will be her second study permit and third year in Canada. We currently have an AINP application in.

Is she attending High School or some post secondary institution? Normally those in Canada attending normal school ie kindergarten to finishing high school are exempt a Study Permit if in Canada. HOWEVER

Who is a minor?
In Canada, each province or territory defines the age of majority. Anyone under the age of majority at the time of their arrival in Canada is considered to be a minor child.

The age of majority is 18 in Alberta, Manitoba, Ontario, Prince Edward Island, Quebec and Saskatchewan.
The age of majority is 19 in British Columbia, New Brunswick, Newfoundland and Labrador, Nova Scotia, the Northwest Territories, Nunavut and the Yukon.

Is a study permit required? [A30(2)]
Minor children already in Canada are authorized to study without a study permit at the pre-school, primary or secondary level if

I guess due to the fact that she will soon be 18 and In Alberta she would no longer be classed as a minor therefore not exempt a study permit.

She turned 18 in September. Just wanted to know if she can still go to school while she waits for new study visa?

Legally no as she requires a study permit. Has she been going to school sine September? In the big scheme of things I don't imagine CBSA will be turning up and hauling her off.

Study Permits can't be applied for at the border for most people unless you're e.g. a US citizen/US PR. UK citizens aren't eligible to apply at the border.

I believe she had a previous Study Permit correct? She could have applied to extend online to finish high school while that was still valid.

We didn’t know until we got to the border that she couldn’t be issued another study permit. Just need to know if she has implied status while she waits as she’s had a study visa before

Providing it was applied for before the other expired.

As FL says: if you applied online before the previous SP expired.

There are exceptions but these relate to minor children and your child is no longer a minor if living in Alberta.
