Hi.
I have a question.

If I came in Canada as a student and now I am a Protected person,do I need a study permit?

The one I had as an international did not expire yet.

What should I do?

Hello,

Thank you for sharing your situation and question with us.

You can find some information on the Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada website in the Study permits: Refugees and protected persons section.

Here is an excerpt,

Protected persons studying in Canada


Pursuant to R215(1)(g), protected persons, within the meaning of A95(2), may apply for a study permit from within Canada. However, they must meet all the conditions required of study permit holders as identified in R216(1). The requirement to leave Canada at the end of the authorized stay is satisfied by virtue of R216(2).

Protected persons are exempt from the requirement to provide biometric information when applying in Canada for a study permit.



You may want to contact the Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) Call Centre for some information on how to proceed and what your options are.

I hope this information is helpful. Please let us know if you have further questions and if there is any follow up to your question/situation.
