Little update about my process. Still at same page, no GU or ADR. Had to apply this week for my WP extension, already have a temporary WP Extension until they review all the paperwork (2h filling up stuff + 300$ short).

About TR to PR, I contacted my MP that was able to gather some information about my process (took 2 working days), I was informed that the application received on May 24 2021 is currently open and in process.

Eligibility and security not started
Criminality verifications are in progress
Medical has passed

But why CIC / RCMP are taking so long in criminal I really don't know. Seeing people who received AOR at same week as my self with portal request in the hands is sad (about how CIC deals with all requests without organization, giving people priorities). The only thing that make sense for me is that my process is stuck with someone mediocre at work (or is about to retire and don't want work anymore). Anyway, keep you guys posted about any updates.
Did you apply for the TR to PR OWP?

Service Ontario needs a proof that you are allowed to work until your WP-EXT is issued.
IRCC will send you a letter in your account that you can use to extend your OHIP:
"After you apply online, we’ll send you a letter in your account (WP-EXT except PGWP) that you can use as proof that you’re authorized to keep working, if you’re eligible:
  • You can print this letter or show it with your current work permit.
  • The letter is proof that you’re authorized to keep working under the same conditions as your original work permit until we process your application."
This letter has an expiry date, I believe your OHIP will be extended until that date. You can double check with them once you got the letter.

Is this limited to Ontario? Could one get such a letter outside of Ontario? QC? NL? BC?

Contacting MP doesn’t do much . But if you wanna do , you can do it because they get back to you in a month.
so if in a month you get portal thats good
Otherwise you will get to know what’s going on with your file .
Try contacting ircc agent tommorow and then according email your MP.
I think how long the MP replies depends on their constituency. I contacted my MP from NL, they replied within 3 business days with the update (they asked some clarifying questions within 2 business days).
An MP from Montreal or Toronto would have many more constituents than from SK, NL, etc.

He told me 20 to 25 days and still waiting after 27 April.
He asked for the consent forms on the same day

No, it's for all applicants. The letter will be given to you in your online account as a document like passport request letter for example.

Do you know what's going to happen when this work permit extension gets expired (at the end of the year)? (Not sure why people need to keep paying for the fees for them to process the applications)
There is a new policy coming this June which allows TR2PR applicants to get longer extension for their WP:

I think they said they'll extend it until the end of 2023.

Thank you for your response. I saw that news, but not sure if it's good news (that just means to me the wait time could be a lot more longer). How could they extend it when you already applied and received the document through Tr to Pr owp ext? It'd not make any sense to pay for the extension fee again for that, especially for those who already got their AOR this year or even last year, wouldn't it? (But I am also aware that the processing speed doesn't really make sense, and I doubt if it'll change any time soon.)

You are right, it's not actually a good news. They did that to accommodate the ones that are going to receive their PR in 2023. As the immigration targets were introduced in early 2022, IRCC is going to process some of the TR2PR applicants in 2022 and the remaining in 2023. So, they want to make sure the ones who will not receive their PR in 2022 have a valid status to work in Canada.
Of course, if you have already applied for an extension and or waiting for approval cannot apply for another extension under this policy. You need to wait to receive your response and then re-apply in 4 months or less before the expiry of the WP for another the extension. The other point for paying fee is also correct, each time you apply for extension, you need to pay the processing fee which is unfortunate.

I received my AOR and medical passed.

My post graduation work permit will expire on sept 2022 and I applied for an extension yesterday. I am leaving Canada for vacation in June. Do you think it will be any problem?
