You have to talk to IRCC and ask them which application you should use, I recall they asked in May to use only the online app, but it's better to talk to them.
Hi Basim,

I would really appreciate if you walk me through the steps you took and the forms you filled out. Thank you.

Hi, I suggest you call CIC once, to make sure. However, I called them one month ago and they suggested me to do it by paper not online. extension of PGWP has to be by paper. I suggest you renew yu passport as soon as possible. Then the extension of PGWP is the same as the initial application for PGWP. form imm5710, the same checklist, the copy of completion letter for the last Canadian degree, the copy of new passport, transcript, the copy of current PGWP, letter of explanation. They sent me these two links for guidance and also you can find the mailing address.

Thank you for replying.
Correct me if I'm wrong, the application of the first PGWP is the same as the extension?
Did you apply for as a work permit for the same employer or restore my status as a worker? Did you change your answers from the your application of PGWP?

Hello,

I applied for an extension of PGWP by mail and also attached a letter specifying the reason for application. I would like to know in how much time did you get your new work permit? The website specifies 121 days.

Hi,

I understand your comment was been a while. I hope you can help me out. Did tick the box for status as "Student or Worker"? Then, did you have a link or guide on how to write the letter of explanation regarding the extension?

Thank you.

Thanks for quick reply
I am applying a paper application,so i think i should attach an old passport and will confirm that copy in explanation letter.

Hi,

I was wondering what did you tick on the box in the status part asking "Student or worker"?
Then, what option did you choose for these???

Check the appropriate box or boxes to indicate if you are applying for:

  • A work permit with the same employer
  • An initial work permit or a work permit with a new employer
  • Restoration of your status as a worker
  • An initial or an extension of a temporary resident permit
From the list, select the appropriate information to indicate your immigration status in Canada:
  • Citizen
  • Permanent resident
  • Visitor
  • Worker
  • Student
  • Other
  • Protected Person
  • Refugee Claimant
  • Foreign National
Lastly, is there any guide on how to write the letter of explanation for the extension?
