Study or visit
Travel to Canada
Canada is a country with a lot to offer for tourists and students. It is a large country with an abundance of history, culture, and beautiful natural places to visit. However, it has specific requirements for visitors depending on nationality. Certain foreign citizens will have an easier time entering Canada than others. Some may need a visa and others, an authorization called an eTA (Electronic Travel Authorization).
Only United States passport holders are not required to have a visa nor an eTA, a valid US passport is enough to enter. Passport holders from any other country other than the United States will need to obtain the above mentioned corresponding travel documents before traveling to Canada.
On the other hand, international students need to obtain a study permit no matter their nationality. Canada annually receives many foreign students that are attracted to its famous educational system. Most foreign students choose Canada as a great future investment being cost and quality effective.

For example: you can still work in Canada if your work permit expires and you had applied for an extension before it expired. If you submit an application after it expires, you will not have implied status.
Restoration of status means that you are restoring your status to a legal status that you have had. For example, if you had a work permit and it expired, you will apply to restore your status. However, if your status is still valid, you are applying for an extension. Restoration of status only works when the status that you had expired and you are within 90 days of that expiry date.
