My work permit expires in September 2022, I applied for Work Permit extension.
Ircc responded that i have been give 2 months extension - Nov 2022 or decision on the work permit whichever comes first.
I was just wondering if someone could share the work permit extension timeline
They didn’t give you an extension yet. You submitted your application, and your AOR letter says that IRCC will make a decision in 4 months(July to November); in the meantime, you’re in implied status. Most likely in Nov, you will have your application approved and your work permit extended.

why they only give you two month extension?

They changed the rules in Oct 2020. Well i found the answer to my own question

The letter has a 120-day validity from the date of receipt
In cases where the 120 days have passed and no decision has been rendered, the applicant may request continued proof of authorization to work using the IRCC Web form.

I got a ghost update on 6th July. When I checked my medical section changed from "You passed the medical exam to you do not need a medical exam". This was mainly due to my medicals getting expired.
So either my old medicals will get extended or I will get a new medical request. That's how I assume.
Any news yet? My medicals (me+family) also expired today, as expected because the validity on GCMS notes was until today.

Aor September 20,
21 Feb, 22 CIC requested a letter for address confirmation and today when I logged in saw a status update:
Review of medical results - July 20, 2022:You passed the medical exam.

What would be the next steps? How long any insights would be helpful.
Thank you
When did your medicals expire before getting passed again on July 20? Thanks!
