Thanks alot for your reply.
I underwent my B.A in Petroleum Engg, but when I was granted admissions I was told by my advisor that this course (which I finished in 9 months because I was exempted from subjects I had undergone in my previous degree) was looked at like a 2 year course by CIC and that I would be eligible for a 3 yr PGWP...So I finished my course in April 2010, and got a co-op position in Aug which will help me grad and apply for a PGWP...but I need to get this done before Aug 2011 (WP/Study permit expires) which I will, process started. Now, my employer likes me and wants to extend my term upto Dec 2011, wherein they will check on my skills...and hopefully provide me a permanent position, but I am kind off afraid to ask them for an LMO at this moment, so prefer getting my PGWP and then gain the 1 yr Work experience and apply for my PR through CEC showing them one year of experience under the PGWP (need to do the math and get this 1 year by asking for extensions)
Secondly, I looked at the Provincial Nominee progs (ALBERTA), I had all my paper work ready to apply (family stream - sister is here) but CIC discontinued the AINP - Family Stream in Aug 2010. So that route for me went Kapput
So..I really wanted to know if there is any other way I could get myself through this...
