Hi everyone,
In my case I applied online for the BOWP on May 20 and I have not received any update. I have notice that there is sort kind of delay with the Work permits.

Hi,
I just wanted to share that today my work permit extension was approved. I applied on May 20 for the BOWP and today (it took 106 days) I check on the cic page and it is approved. I still have't received the email but the cic page is already showing my permit number and validity.

Received BOWP approval yesterday, waiting for physical document to arrive.

I am in Canada, my current visa is expired, I want to apply for TRV so that I can travel outside Canada and come back.

I am checking processing time for TRV on cic here: https://www.canada.ca/en/immigration-refugees-citizenship/services/application/check-processing-times.html
Which option is right one,
1. Temporary Residence (Visiting, Studying, Working) -> Visitor Visa (from Inside Canada) -> 8 days
2. Temporary Residence (Visiting, Studying, Working) -> Work Permit -> Canada -> 8 Weeks

Is it #1 or #2 for applying TRV after BOWP within Canada?

Has anyone gone through applying TRV after BOWP approval, wondering what is the realistic timelines for TRV?

Did you receive the BOWP approval? had you tried calling CIC to check the reason for late processing? I applied on May 15 and also waiting.
I called immigration regarding the hold up. Our PR application has not passed R10 for some reason that was unknown to the agent. As a result my BOWP has not commenced because I guess we are only eligible for BOWP if we have submitted a full and complete PR application. A bit nervous as to why we haven't passed R10. The general processing time for that (EE FSW) at the moment seems to be about 45-50 days and we are at about 135 days.
