Hello, I am now working with an open work permit and I will apply for PR under CEC soon. Since the process may take months, what should I do if my work permit expires before I receive the result of my PR application ? I would prefer to stay in Canada to wait for the result. I know one possible option is to change my status to visit but how do I do that? Can someone give me some links? (I did look over immigration canada's website but it seems there is only information about vistor's visa which doesn't fit my situation.) Also, my passport will also expire in about 6 months after I can apply for PR under CEC. Should I renew my passport before I apply for PR or after ? (I can only renew my passport 6 months before it expires and it will take 1 month to receive the new passport.) Any ideas or suggestions are appreciated ! Thanks you !
