No, you don't have to apply again. Whenever you send the application by mail(paper), the processing time increases. I was in same situation so I know it feels like. Just have patience. I got my BOWP in four months from date I applied. So I guess you have ample of time left.Permanent Residency CEC class AOR received on May 16.
Medical done & had to upload additional documents pertaining to my extended family within a week of July 5th.
Timeline shows 16 weeks remain, estimated to be completed by November 16th 2019.
Submitted a BOWP via paper/mail to Edmonton on June 16th and haven't heard anything back at all and am starting to get worried as my current work permit expires on August 24th. I know I will be covered by Implied Status until I hear back about the BOWP but I am worried that I filled something out on it incorrectly and it will be rejected, forcing me to resign from my job and leave the country. Should I apply for another BOWP online immediately just in case?
