Hello,

I'm currently with a PGWP and I received my AOR on Dec 14, 2018.
I applied for my BOWP on Dec 19.

I was wondering how long takes to receive the BOWP.
Also, do we receive a pass on it after passing the medicals exams?

thanks!!!

Hi,

Can we work for any employer after receiving BOWP? My employer has a closed work permit for me and I can work only with that employer.
Also, my contract job with the employer is short term (Less than 4 months). Can I still apply for BOWP. Please help. Thanks

Hi Guys,

Idk why some people I met keep telling me that I should have added an explanation letter says I’m applying Bowp and why..etc. I don’t get it why it’s necessary. I only scanned and uploaded my Pnp and Aor. I also selected “open work permit” on imm form.

I really wonder what do u guys think?

Thx

Hi can somebody help me please. I’m an inland CEC applicant Aor September 2018. My WP will be expiring this August. So I have to apply for my BOWP. My application status shows my eligibility is review required and background shows we are processing your background. On gcms it shows eligibility review required, criminally in progress and security not started. My question is that is there a chance for BOWP refusal because my eligibility is still under review. I leaned somewhere that you need to have a positive eligibility assessment in order to apply for WP. My R10 is OK on gcms. Someone please give me a advice :(:(. Thank you

Doesn't matter if your eligibility is under review.. only R10 OK is needed for BOWP..

Guys please help for an urgent question.
I need to travel before the decision made, but I am scared that would lead my application to failure.
  • Do I have to stay in Canada ALL THE TIME during the whole process before decision made?
  • Have anyone left Canada and got approved?
  • If I was qualified at the moment I submitted my application then left Canada and my current work permit expired, am I still eligible?

Thanks for reply. I have checked many time from cic website however there is no clear answer about my questions.
Your current work permit expired already and your PR and BOWP applications have been in process, so are you on implied status now? If yes, the link above is very clear for your questions, I think.

It's very risky to leave out Canada during your implied status.

I was not on implied status.
My BOWP was approved few days ago...
