Hi everyone, This is my first post here, so please let me know if I have posted it in wrong forum. So here is my situation: I came here as a student, graduated in 2016 summer, applied for my PGWP, got it approved in 1 month. Worked for 1st employer for almost 1 year. Switched to a 2nd employer in 2017 and applied for OINP - PNP - Employer Job Offer: International Student Stream at the same time, got that approved in 1 month. Applied for permanent residence in 10 days after PNP approval. I got medical request in end June 2018, got it done in start of July and status is passed. Now, my PGWP (which is an open work permit) is about to expire in November 2018 (in next 2 months) After almost 1 year and 3 months working for 2nd employer, they have started laying-off people (because of some bad circumstances of company), and I am one of them. Note: The PNP, I have says restricted to 2nd employer name, but that was expired after 6 months of the issue date. The PNP also came with Work Permit support letter with 2nd employer name on it. And it also says that "This letter must be used in support of a work permit application within 6 months to remain valid". I am not sure what does that mean. My wife is a dependent in all above applications including WorkPermit, and PR. Am I still eligible to apply for BOWP, or Open Work Permit ?? I have done little research about BOWP. here is the link about BOWP eligibility, according to this, it looks like I am not eligible: https://www.canada.ca/en/immigration-refugees-citizenship/services/work-canada/extend-permit/bridging-open-work-permit.html https://www.canada.ca/en/immigration-refugees-citizenship/corporate/publications-manuals/operational-bulletins-manuals/temporary-residents/foreign-workers/provincial-nominees-permanent-resident-applicants/bridging-open-work-permits.html Also I tried creating an application on CIC portal, with the situation I explained above and selected "applied for permanent residence", and "no job offer" in one of option in questioner. It gave me option for Open Work Permit, I checked the requirement of the documents, and there were simple documents it didn't even asked for PNP or PR or any supporting letter. I am not sure what should I do ??? Please Help!!!
