I’m so tired of waiting. Like my mind struggles every day. I cry almost every day thinking I need to find a 0, a or b job so I can apply to bowp (I’m married). My work permit expires in December and I started worrying about bowp in March. I cannot live in peace anymore. I know there are people waiting for even 3 years but I cannot live like this. It is no fair with us who are already in Canada. I have a friend who got pr in TWO MONTHS as cec. WHY HIM NOT ME? Like he has written me and and I haven’t replied. I’m so upset with this situation that I don’t wanna speak with him, knowing he is already a pr. Yeah I’m jealous, I’m mad, I’m frustrated, I’m stressed, I’m everything. I cannot live my life normally and all because we don’t matter. I’m so sorry, I needed to share this. I feel so much alone here, my husband doesn’t really get my feelings regarding this situation.
I have the same mind struggles as you. I am trying to distract myself every day just to get the PR application out of my head, but I couldn't help but wonder every minute as to why is it taking so long. All the time and money wasted and now I'm thinking of a plan B which I shouldn't be doing coz I should've my PR early this year. I am getting depressed each day and I always think that the stress I'm experiencing is so unnecessary coz it's should not be happening in the first place. I feel you in every way and I believe the outcome is inevitable - that we will get our approvals. It's the waiting that makes us so anxious.

I think they understand the situation. They probably don't have a system that allows them to identify whether an FSW applicant is inland or outland. Or, they don't care and they simply want to show numbers.
I mean they just have to filter it based on Country of residence that's it. Also we all sending webforms telling them that we are in Canada and waiting from long time.

I share your pain. I too am so utterly frustrated and disappointed being stuck in this limbo forever. While the comparatively unskilled/inexperienced CEC counterparts are rejoicing.

There is no information, no transparency from Canadian govt on why exactly they have stopped FSW altogether or when it will resume, if at all it will. Now it seems they are no different from my home country which I so desperately wanted to move away from.

At this point I don't know if it is even worth it anymore to become a Canadian Resident/Citizen when the country does not even respect us?

Hi There,

I am really sorry to hear about your struggles and I sincerely hope and pray that you get your PR soon. I am in the same boat, waiting and waiting as there's nothing else I can do.

I just wanted to ask you about the BOWP situation that you mentioned. I may be misunderstanding your post here or might not be aware of your entire situation but If I am not mistaken, you don't need to have a job in order to apply for a BOWP. You are eligible to apply for one as long as you have already submitted your complete PR application, which I believe you have, and you are in Canada, which I guess you are as well since you are posting in this thread. So I believe you can apply for your BOWP if your current WP is expiring in the next 3 to 4 months.

Hope this helps. Prayers for you and your family.

Regards,
Hamid

thank you for answering but I’m married, my husband holds a work permit too. Yes we both are working. He is actually a manager assistant but I read I would need a job 0, a or b to get him the extension too. I have a supervisor job rn but I only work 7 hours there and just started in a new place as a regular worker. I’m so stressed, like I’m on my limit rn.

i really hope that Canadá opening everything will help to process everything back again.

that’s true. I’ve made my life here. I want to buy some other things but we say what happens if… so in the end our lives are on hold.

I see. Maybe you can ask some consultant or someone more knowledgeable about this but from what I have read so far on CIC's website I think you should be able to get a BOWP easily. Maybe you can ask this one user here LegalFalcon. I think they are an immigration consultant or something and seem to possess very deep knowledge of the process. :)

Probably the queue system they use to assign cases to IRCC case managers only works by stream, not stream & country of origin.

It is probably an artifact of the technology implementation. I'm in IT and you run across stuff like this all the time. The original system designers didn't foresee a situation where FSW-Inland would require differential processing to FSW-Outland, so that was not built in.

Really can understand… it’s really frustrating. Most folks whom I know who submitted in 2021 have already got copr while we all are waiting for more than 10+ months. It just feels so unfair. Don’t knw when will they ever touch our files. It’s now like impossible to travel to home country until we have this. Medical is automatically extended for all inland applicants, but once you travel outside Canada, that’s no longer valid.

Really? I am waiting for medical extension as well. Was the medical extended for everyone? Is it real extension or is it a system glitch?

Mine hasn’t expired yet. But when I called them
When I had got a ghost update back end of June, they said as per the new policy or something medical will be extended for inland applicants. There r some changes now in their policy regarding it. But I haven’t got any mail or anything in this regard as mine is yet to expire.
