Applied on 9th june...
No updates yet
They started reviewing my eligibility i think because statement of eligibility changed to “ we are reviewing whether you meet the eligibility requirement”.
Anybody who applied after 8th june, can you please post the status of eligibility ? Just wanted to make ur they have started reviewing my eligibility.
That's actually good news dude. Once they start reviewing, you should receive final decision soon.

You should be able to put less than $1000. I dont think thats a deciding factor once you already have a work permit.
For number 7, its worker. for question 4, i was advised that if you are working, you can put that address.
Thank for your help ErinB67.
So for question 7, i just put the date of my PGWP than.
I'm not working at the moment, so what can i put ?

Applied June 10th
Approved Sept 30th

Its a 1 year permit because I did a one year master's program.

I am working since 1st July and want to ask all of you a quick poll regarding PR:

Option 1 : Apply through BC PNP Skilled International Graduate (paper based, may take 18-20 months) and get an open bridge work permit in June 2020. I have 110+ on SIRS (BC PNP)

OR

Option 2 : Keep working till 1st July and apply through EE CEC (online, ~ 6-7 months) and bridge work permit in mid July-Aug 2020

Whats your experience of applying for Bridge work permit?

Can one continue to work legally while they are waiting for Bridge work permit?


Thanks everyone!

Congrats guys.

On the other hand, I'm really disappointed and upset about the IRCC right now. Why aren't they processing applications in chronological order? Clearly my application hasn't even been touched yet, mine is just a COOP work permit! It's just one-minute thing once they start looking at my application! WTF are they doing

Yes, you would put the dates on your pgwp.

If you're not working or not in school, I would suggest asking a friend who has at least PR status if you could list them here. Anyone else has any ideas?

This is taking too long...and I really want to go home before I end up taking a job in Canada. SO I decided to apply my trv from home once I get the pgwp. Has anyone done this before?
