Thanks so much for the Information I appiled in Sept 27,2011 CIC Recevied in 29 Sept,2011.Application Is in Process Dec13,2011.you have any idea how long it takes.
Once again Thanks very Much..
Hello! According to the process time, It could take a year, but I hope CIC will reduce it, to get an answer sooner
But don't worry about it, at least you have a work permit (Much of us don't have it).
You can continue working,,, Until when is your work permit valid? because maybe you should send your application for Open Work Permit, to be attached to your sponsorship file, so once you get the first stage approved you will received your OWP. And if your work permit ends before having an answer, you will be in Implied Status, and according to what I read, you can continue working under the same instructions of the expired work permit.
But I suggest you to call CIC, to ask what's the better option you have, and what you should do.
