Common-law sponsor.
Inland Applicant living in Montreal.
Currently under study permit until 12/31.
Living together for 4 years (both names on lease).

Applied for Sponsorship + OWP

This is my timeline

Application Received at CPC Missisauga: April 11
AOR: May 23rd
Application linked: May 24
OWP approved: May 30 (???????)


We haven't received the invitation to apply for a CSQ yet. Anyone has any idea how long it takes?

Also, my OWP is useless. It was issued on May 30th 2019, but it expired on May 30th 2019. I received a physical copy in the mail on Friday. Anyone else has experienced something like this?

Thanks!

Juan

If you're studying right now you are not allowed to have a WP anyways because your study permit wouldn't be valid and you would have to stop studying.

The OWP expiry is an error. It happens occasionally. You need to send a Webform to inform IRCC and they will re-issue it. Note that if you haven't finished your studies, you will need to stop studying and wait until you are a PR to resume.

Hi
Hopefully someone can help me.
Sponsorship application received March 8 and AOR on May 10.. I’m PR and my wife is on post graduation work Permit, which is going to expire September last week 2019 ,. We didn’t think about submitting open work Permit while we send our application package. Now We’re worried about her status in Canada and what is going to happen after September. So my question is
1) can I add/apply open work Permit now with my sponsorship application even though we have received AOR from IRCC.
2) could we apply through paper application or apply via mycic account online.? because i heard we could apply via online from june 02 2019.

If you applied inland, she can submit a paper OWP app.
