you are lucky ;D ;D ;D
sounds like you applied online for extension. is this post graduation work permit. every body here is saying that we can not apply online for pgwp extension. how come??
Thank you so much for your help, Jubear!jubear said:Stefanxn,
Think of this as a letter of explanation. Explain your status in Canada (postgraduate work permit holder) stating that a PGWP is an "open" permit and not employer specific and as such are exempt from Labour Market Impact Assessment (LMIA) within the International Mobility Program, in addition to not being required to have a job offer.
You should also speak to someone in person from the VFS office in China to confirm.

I'm sure some of you are already aware of number 2.
2) Citizenship and Immigration Canada (CIC) Rebrands as Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC).
3) QSWP to reopen this summer. So ready yourselves.
Cheers!Jubear and friends, I will reserve my comments on the way this forum has/d been helpful until my situation has been resolved. But a preliminary observation. I believe that this forum and any forum at all,is conceived to help those who are in need (agony),but I have observed that people who are supposed to be "heroes " just give an "understand or go to hell" replies to many "cries for help".Anyway, I will expatriate soon .But to Jubear, my respect
For the benefit of the house this is the time line of the struggle that is ongoing;
FIRST APPLICATION FOR PGWP. ..2ND JUNE 2015
REFUSAL LETTER. .DECEMBER 14 2015
RESTORATION /PGWP APPLICATION. ..DECEMBER 21ST 2015.
RECEIPT OF LETTER FROM CIC (VIRTUALLY BASED ON THE JUNE APPLICATION. . ASKING FOR A DOCUMENT. ..DECEMBER 10TH 2016 TO BE SUBMITTED DECEMBER 17TH.
THE PROBLEM? FOR MORE THAN ONE WEEK I COULDN'T SUBMIT THE DOCUMENT BECAUSE THE PORTAL FOR SUBMISSION HAD GONE MISSING!!!
So, how do you go solving a problem you didn't cause? With help from friends like Jubear and others, I made sure I sent mails and documents to all CIC sites and then went to my MP'S Office. I was lucky to be attended to despite no prior appointment .The MP'S office there and then called the CIC (not our normal number )and she was told that they would attach my document to my application. Whatever happens next ,I will brief the forum. 7
As per my knowledge, you cannot apply for TRV without having your PGWP (because you need to send a copy of it for TRV) . However, you can leave Canada but in this case you will loose your implied status. So, you have to apply for TRV from your home country after receiving your PGWP.lkf0217 said:Hi, Jubear:
I need you help. I submitted my application on Aug 14th, but until now I receive nothing info for PGWP. I gave CIC many calls but not work. My study permit have been expired. the visa is also expired. I am going to go back my country soon because of some reason. Can I apply for TRV without PGWP since my student visa is expired ? is there somebody who has the same experience to share?
