Hi,
I submitted my BOWP last October 24. 2019. However, my lawyer told me to use new work permit application because my previous work permit is PGWP. I'm confused now whether I did the correct option. Thanks
My previous visa was PGWP as well. I called CIC yesterday and she said: "BOWP is in 4 months of processing time". So, my understanding is the option in your screenshot is the correct one, 116 days .s

I applied for BOWP on June 16th. It was approved on October 9th.
Current processing time is 5+ months.
Bowp is considered to be work permit extension.
Don't know how that works out.

I applied for BOWP on Sept 25, 2019 and still haven't heard anything. Checking on their website today and they are working on applications received on August 11, 2019.

Few of us here got approval on BOWP and they applied around 20th Sept.

Never saw that happening before. Maybe they got lucky.
You should get your anytime in next 2-3 months.

For FYI:
I applied for BOWP in Oct 2019 and got approved in Jan 2020. It took more than 3 months to be approved.
