    Applying for post graduation work permit

    Honestly, I can't remember if I did - I just logged into my cic account now to check but couldn't retrieve the document upload page. But I uploaded my passport and all data page. What I'll say is if you find out you need to - pls submit it asap as your application may be refused! - especially if...

So I guess this nullifies what my uni initially said that I must...
