Hello and thank you for your question.

It's great that you're being proactive about renewing your permit and looking into how to do so in advance!

If you want to extend your work permit, make sure you begin your application at least 30 days before the date your permit will expire. 

You can either apply online, or on paper after downloading the application package. Details on how to apply can be found on the Government of Canada's website.

We hope this helps. team
