Restoration of work permit

Discussion in 'Temporary Residence in Canada (Work, Study, Visit)' started by Bill222, Jun 14, 2019.

  1. I messed up. Two days ago I got a refusal for my work permit extension due to missing fees because I forgot to push submit after uploading the receipt. Officially lost my status as a temporary resident and now I have to restore my work permit.
    I have questions:

    1. Do I still reapply to extend my pgwp now that I have a new passport? I'm still within the date because I started school september 2017 and ended June 2018.

    2. My company is willing to rehire me when I get things sorted. Do they have to apply for lmia? Because I got hired on a pgwp which I was planning to extend due to it expiring on the same date as my passport (which was some months before the actual expiry date since I spent a year in postgrad)

    3. In the application form do I still put my status as a worker or a foreign national now

    4. I left my company today, two days after receiving the refusal letter because I had to sort out my final paystub and other issues. Will I get on trouble??

    5. How useful would an immigration lawyer be right now because I heard they are expensive

    Any advice would be appreciated. I'm going to start the application next week and I'll post updates.
  2. You are only eligible to extend PGWP if you have received pop and applied for PR. You you have not got pnp approval. then you are not eligible. You have to apply new work permit based on LMIA.
