BOWP Tracker 2020

I have a quick query regarding BOWP eligibility after you have got an extension on PGWP (Open work permit) already.

To summarize, last year IRCC announced public policy that allowed to extend your stay for upto one year. I am not sure if that itself was a BOWP?

Anyways, I had applied and received it last year and was hoping to apply for BOWP this year?

Am I eligible to apply for this BOWP?

Currently: CEC Inland Applicant

I applied for mine December 8 2021 and haven't heard anything.
Incredibly frustrating as I need to be able to travel for my job. If I do travel, and come back to Canada, I lose my work status.
I could lose a lot of work because of this.
Anyone know of any loop holes or anything that can help me?

Even though he upload my PNP with PR application file number yesterday .
