Free stay / extension after ARC expires


If I’m not mistaken most people with an ARC are given a free period where they can stay after the ARC expires. 90 days or something.

Does anyone know if this only applies to ARCs expiring at the end of the validity period, or also for ARCs which are cancelled part way through their valid period?

Many thanks!


If you leave your job early (either by quitting or by being laid off or fired), you can apply to the NIA for a six month extension. Search for “six month extension” for several threads about it.

I’m not sure about other situations.


Thanks! Didn’t know what to call it.
