Hi,
My current closed work permit expires by end of July and my employer is not ready to extend due to some issue at his end. I want to stay in Canada, is there a way?

You have two possible options to the best of my knowledge:
  • Find another employer willing to apply for an LMIA for you (not an easy thing during the pandemic)
  • See if you could change your status to student (you'd have to get accepted into a qualifying program and institution) or visitor.

Unless your job is skilled and you've worked here for a year or more, then you could apply for PR.
