You can do it on your own online. I'm not sure about processing it at the border. I read that getting an open work permit at the border is kind of complicated, but I am not sure. I don't know if it is only a rumor. I extended my post-graduate work permit at the border and I got it closed as your, sponsored by my employer . My friends, who had to renew their work permits, they did online and their employer did not pay the fee. That is why the received an open work permit. Since you have your file number you have the right to apply to a bridge work permit.

My PNP work support letter explicitly specifies that it is LMIA exempt (exception code T13) and therefore closed and employer restricted, which is why my original work permit required a compliance fee paid through the employer portal. I'm just wondering whether the compliance fee needs to be paid again for the new work permit. There doesn't seem to be any information about it online. But my guess is it probably will.

I know. My work permit is closed too. Since you already have your file number you can apply for a bridge work permit. Your employer doesn't have to pay any fee. You will pay it on your own. Since your employer is not paying any fee, your work permit will be open. In my case, by the time that I received my provincial nomination my post-graduate work permit was about to expire and I didn't have time to get the file number, that is why my employer had to sponsor my extension and I couldn't get a bridge work permit.

Take a look here.

Hi Guys, just got an email from Case Processing Centre Ottawa saying that my PR application is "almost complete" and that I need to send in passport photos, within the next 30 days. But I am very confusing because my CIC account still showing that i am under background check, so wondering what should I do, is this a hoax email???????

Dear XXX,
The processing of your application for permanent residence in Canada is almost complete. You must complete the following steps within 30 days in order for our office to issue your Confirmation of Permanent Residence and, if applicable, permanent residence visa. If for any reason you are not able to meet this deadline, please inform us immediately by email to: CPC-CTD-Ottawa@cic.gc.ca with details concerning your situation.



STEP 1: UPDATE YOUR APPLICATION



If any of the following conditions apply, you must inform us immediately via email CPC-CTD-Ottawa@cic.gc.ca.



· Marriage or common-law union, divorce, annulment, legal separation;

· Death of the sponsor, the principal applicant or any accompanying family member;

· Birth or adoption of a child, including grandchildren born to dependent children;

· You, the principal applicant, or any of your family members have been charged or convicted of a criminal offence.



STEP 2: DETERMINE IF YOU NEED TO SUBMIT YOUR PASSPORT(S)



· Determine if you are holder of passport(s) from countries whose citizens need a visa or an Electronic Travel Authorization (eTA) to travel to Canada, by checking this website:

http://www.cic.gc.ca/english/visit/visas-all.asp.





· If you are holder of passport(s) from countries whose citizens need a visa to travel to Canada, you will need to submit the passport for you and for each accompanying family member. Your passport(s) should be valid for at least 6 months and have at least two blank pages. If a child is included on your passport, you must have one blank page per accompanying child. Please note that you STILL need to submit the passport even if:



o You have a valid Canadian temporary residence visa.

o You are a permanent resident of the U.S.A AND holder of passport from countries whose citizens need a visa to travel to Canada.



· If you are holder of passport(s) from countries whose citizens need an eTA to travel to Canada or a holder of passport(s) from the United States, you will need to submit one photocopy of the photo page and any pages containing amendments of the passport for you and for each accompanying family member. Please do not send your original passport(s). Your passport(s) should be valid for at least 6 months.

Please note that these instructions apply to passport holders from Mexico as well, who, as of December 1, 2016 , do not require a visa to enter Canada.



***Please note that Confirmation of Permanent Residence and permanent residence visas cannot be issued to holders of Diplomatic, Official or Military passports. You must have an ordinary passport.***



STEP 3: PREPARE YOUR DOCUMENTS



1. Passport(s) OR photocopy(ies) of passport(s), as explained in Step 2.



2. Two (2) photos of yourself and of each accompanying family member. See our specifications at www.cic.gc.ca/english/information/applications/guides/pdf/5445EB-e.pdf



3. One pre-paid return envelope so that we can return your passport(s) and Confirmation of Permanent Residence documents. See Step 4 for instructions regarding the return envelope.



CPC-CTD-Ottawa@cic.gc.ca so that we can send you instructions for submitting your documents to a visa office which is the most convenient for you. Please note that our office will not return passports to an address outside North America.



· If you have a mailing address in Canada:

First, Congrats!
I used to have heard some guys meet this situation and just do follow the instructions and send their passport to Ottawa, then couple days later, their CIC status updated to be normal. But I am not so sure, just read this case in some post.
