BOWP Processing while PR Application Rejected

Discussion in 'Canadian Experience Class' started by Carlosincanada1, Jun 3, 2019.

  1. Hi all, Somebody in the same situation?
    -PR submitted April 17, 2019
    -BOWP submitted April 19, 2019 (Processing time said takes 91 days from here)
    -PGWP expired April 25, 2019
    -PR cancelled Incomplete on May 25, 2019.

    I am on implied status until a decision on BOWP, I’m expecting an ITA next draw June 12, 2019 (CRS 500). Could I upload the second AOR to my BOWP which is still processing and get approved even with the rejection on my first application? Thank you so much in advance!

    Tough situation.


    "If the e-APR is incomplete, the application for a BOWP must be refused. The open work permit holder fee can be refunded, but the processing fees cannot."

    Nothing to stop you from trying.... this sometimes works; it should not, but sometimes strange things happen in favor of the applicant. But you shouldn´t have false hope.

    By the rules, if your eAPR is rejected as incomplete, then your BOWP application will be too, and your implied status will have never existed. So you would not be eligible to re-apply for the BOWP (because you no longer have a valid work permit). Very tough situation.
  3. you can apply for the restoration of your status as a worker within 90 days of your expiration date on your work permit
