On April 8, 2021, Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) announced changes in the terminology used in the program delivery instructions. IRCC has used the term “implied” status to specify that the applicant’s status is extended until the decision on the new status application is not made. However, the interpretation of this status caused multiple confusions, and, therefore, IRCC decided to replace it with “maintained” status to emphasize the legal nature of the carried status.
