Default what happens when work permit app is rejected??

hey guys,

Some advice would be appreciated, as i am very confused.

i am applying for an extension of a work permit, without a LMO, so i know it will be rejected. i am only doing this so i can work for another 6-8 weeks and earn some money before i have to stop working completely.

my question is-what happens when i get my rejection letter? i spoke to CIC and i got 2 answers from 2 people. i THINK i have 90 days to apply for another type of visa-ie a visitors visa. if i don't do this, i have to leave canada in a matter of days.

can anyone clarify this for me-is this correct? once i get my rejection letter, can i legally stay in canada whilst applying for a visitors visa?

thanks in advance!

1. You will get a letter telling you to leave immediately.
2. You can apply for restoration, as long as your work permit expiry is less than 90 days. You can remain while the restoration is reviewed, but you can't work.

thanks for you reply, it is much appreciated.
my work permit expires on june 30th, and i am applying this week for the brief extension, so that they receive it before then.
so if i receive my letter say in mid-august, i then have 90 days to apply for a restoration (as a visitor)?

is this correct?

thank you

i wonder-do you think it would make sense to apply for a visitor permit now instead of when i get the letter?

Thanks
