Hello everyone,

I have very urgent question. Thanks in advanced.

I applied for my wife's pr on May 24th, 2019, I sponsored her. She was on post graduation work permit when we applied for her PR. Now due to covid her pr application process is taking longer than expected time meanwhile her Post graduation work permit expired on 20th, August 2020. We applied for her work visa instead of restoring her post graduation work permit.

I just came to know Canada government announced new rules of restoring post graduation work permit upto 18 months. Now my question is when I am answering eligibility questions online it is asking me to fill out her expired date on portal and when I am entering date, system automatically saying your application is expired more than 90 days ago. How can we apply under this new policy while we wait for her PR.
