My OWP is approved !! So relieved and happy :) Waiting for the document now. Linked my OWP application yesterday and received the email today.
For all those of you who received OWP, how is the job hunting going on? Are you guys already working? If no, were you able to find job easily. Do let me know.

Congrats! I’m not working now, but usually there are many jobs all around Canada during summer. It’s peak season.

So, terrible news from me. My application package got sent back because of minor errors, and my oversight. It seemed that they only opened my application to check when I sent in an inquiry because they just sent it back last week. If you have yet to hear back or get your AOR from IRCC if your application was received end of April, I would recommend sending them an inquiry. I'm panicking because my WP expires end of August.

When your application is returned, there is no implied status. I'm freaking out and my husband is as well. I'm going to hire an immigration consultant/lawyer. Turns out I can't do this on my own like I have done for my many permits and renewals over the past 6 years.
My application got sent back too, mine was sent back end of March when I sent early Feb. I am now glad it got sent back because I have made numerous mistakes throughout the application (like the date we became common law, we put 1 year ahead of when we actually became common law and did not send the original copy of the criminal record from another country) which they would ask for supporting document later in the process which will delay the process for sure.

You can try to apply again with OWP, no additional fee needs to be paid as they did not use the previous one you sent! and I think they will put you for implied work permit status but you still want to apply for visitor visa while waiting for AOR.

I have been working in the Canadian market from last 6 years. I was on my student permit, changed to PGWP and then waiting on my OWP.I
Imagine the OWP is still under process.
Date of Application received: 8th April, 2019
Aor : 30th May, 2019
OWP : Still waiting onit.

I guess they are doing some background check before they process my application? Since I gave them a history of last 6 years.

wondering who else is waiting from the month of April.
