My Visa expires before my work permit how to apply for visa extension

This actually doesn’t matter.

That’s because your visa is a “travel document”, giving you permission to travel to Canada where the border guard will decide whether or not you could enter.

Your work permit is your “status document” which gives you permission to work in Canada.

As long as you are not travelling outside of Canada during your work permit’s validity, you do not need to renew your visa.

My study permit expired recently and I’m trying to get a pr because I’m getting married soon will it be possible

The short answer is “no”. You cannot go from a study permit to PR. That is impossible.

If your fiance is Canadian (citizen or PR) they can sponsor you for permanent residence.

If your study permit expired less than 90 days ago, you can apply for an “open” work permit. If you work in Canada in a skilled occupation for at least a year you should be eligible to apply for PR then.

So as long as you stay in Canada during the validity of your work permit you do not need to renew your visa. You only need a new visa if you leave Canada and wish to return (by air/train/bus/ferry).
