  4. Hi Members,

    My employer faxed the LMO application to Service Canada Toronto on Oct 29th, 2011. They received it on Oct 31st, 2011. My employer called them couple of times until yesterday. HRSDC initiated processing in Jan 1st week, and gave a file#. Finally yesterday HRSDC called employer asking why there was no recruitment efforts (employer explained that I have been working since Sep 2010, and started as co-op student, and currently on post graduate work permit), and to send a fax of my current work permit (PGWP) and gave 24hrs to respond, which is today. My employer replied on call for the questions he had, and faxed them the work permit in the afternoon. This is week 13, not sure how long it will take from here, and my current work permit expires in 3 weeks from now. I am kind of worried, lets see how this goes.

    I hope this helps.

    Regards,
    Shiv
