Generally, no. When a foreign worker has their employment terminated, he/she is generally entitled to remain in Canada until the expiry of his/her work permit. The termination itself does not invalidate or terminate the foreign worker’s legal status in Canada. However, foreign workers who have had their employment terminated must ensure that they are forthright about their status with immigration authorities, including when travelling. Immigration can then elect to determine whether a change is status is appropriate.
