Extend Your Nomination

Your AINP Nomination gives you six months to submit your Application for Permanent Residence as a Provincial Nominee to IRCC. You must apply to IRCC before your Nomination expires. If your Nomination expires and you request an extension, the reasons why you need an extension will be reviewed by the AINP. There is no guarantee that you will be issued an extension.

  • If you have already been granted an AINP Nomination extension, you will not be granted any further extensions.
  • The AINP must receive your extension request within six months of the expiry date of your original Nomination. If more than six months have passed since the expiry date of your original Nomination, you are not eligible for an AINP Nomination extension.
  • Your Nomination extension request is subject to all conditions that were in place at the time your original Nomination was issued by the AINP.
  • Extension requests will take up to 30 days to process. The AINP will not respond to any inquiries about the status of your Nomination extension request.
