Do the primary applicant requires any NOC job for their husbands OWP? to be issued or extended ?
Yes, I had to be working in a NOC 0, A or B, and have 3 pays lips. Also I wrote a letter explaining that I think I work in ... NOC B, because in my letter of employment they do not specify the NOC, only duties. This is a condition for my husband to be eligible for a SOWP. I hope he receives it, we really need him to continue working :)

Hello all. I noticed updated statuses on both my current PGWP application and the application for a study permit that was approved last year. The IRCC site was hard to get on today, but when I did manage to access it, I think the status changed around two times for each one. My PGWP application went into Eligibility Review on the 5th. Is this a good sign for approval?

Yeah, GCKey access has been up and down. I had an update on my oldest study permit application for some reason. But no updates on the current PGWP application.

Looks like you should be receiving the result of your PGWP application soon.

Alright, hope it's an approval waiting tomorrow. Here's to both of us receiving some good news from immigration.

Thank you so much for replying.
I got the graduation letter on June 19. My study permit officially expires in 2021, but it’s only valid 90 days after graduation. I applied on day 90 (September 17) but because the timing of the website, the application was received on the 18th (day 91).

If they reject my application and the 180 days are over, what are my options to remain in Canada?
By all accounts the 90 day thing has never been taken into consideration by ircc, as long as the sp was not expired as per the date on it you should have no problem.

I got this email today morning. I have applied PGWP inland with biometrics on October 6th. Can someone help ?

Dear client,

You may have received a recent email from Immigration, Refugees, and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) with the subject line “We’re still working on your application” or “We updated your application status”.

This message was sent to some clients due to a technical error. If the message does not apply to you, for example if you no longer have an application in process with us, you may ignore it.

We apologize for any confusion this may have caused.

Sincerely,

Just ignore it doesnt mean anything, they sent the "still working on your application" email to some people who have already received their results.
