just think about it, what's BOWP s full name? bridging OPEN work permit . if you didn't have an open work permit, you can't apply for one.

But i meet all the requirements
I ve applied in CEC express entry. And my visa is expiring in a month
go on cic website and read the eligibility requirement for BWP. It clearly says that applicants with employer restrictions can not apply for BWP. You can take consultant advice too.. i can be wrong

hey guys I am also on closed WP for a specific employer, and just got AOR this month, does that mean I am not qualified to apply BOWP?

That is NOT true! Please show me where exactly does the website say that you cannot apply if you were on closed work permit. The website only says that you can apply if your current work permit expires in less than 4 months and hasn’t expired yet.

THAT BEING SAID: yes! You can apply for bridging open work permit even if you have closed wp right now. But your application for pr has to be submitted before you apply for bowp.

Exactly.
Come on, this is what a BOWP meant to be, giving people who are currently working in Canada a valid status to continue working while waiting for their PR process. It is completely ridiculous not allowing people to stay.
Actually one of my co-worker is in the same situation and he has already applied BOWP, and I will also do the same when I receive my close work permit.
Thanks for your reply.
