I’ve maintained my status, but my health insurance card, driver’s licence and other government ID documents have expired. How can I renew my ID documents?
You should apply to renew your government ID before your work or study permit expires.
If you applied online to extend or change your work permit, you can use your letter (WP-EXT except PGWP) as proof that you’re authorized to keep working.
What to do if you need to renew your government ID document
These services are provided by the province you live in. If you need to renew your government ID, you’ll have to apply to the government of the province or territory you live in. That government will decide how and when they renew the documents.
For more information, contact the appropriate government department or agency in the province or territory where you live, such as those responsible for health or transportation.
