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 Please, any advice would be appreciated. I'm going to start the application next week and I'll post updates.
