Are you talking about an inland OWP? How many months since you applied? The inland OWP takes about 4 months, but usually SA/AIP takes longer, but maybe they are in turbo mode?

You should have gotten the work permit 4 months after you submitted the app, so around April 2016. It is not linked to sponsor approval. There seems to be something wrong with your work permit app, you better call to find out where your OWP is and why it wasn't processed properly.

I literally thought that if you apply with your application and are in status, they would send it together with your AIP/SA. Since you didn't tho,I'd probably say 4 months since you got it.
