Hi: I need some advice here. I applied for BOWP(Bridge Open Work permit) in June 2018.Because i didn't attach my Provincial Nomination Letter, the work permit application was refused. My PGWP expired in October and lost my status. So i stopped working immediately. After this happened, i find a Lawyer and i was advised to restore my status and apply a new work permit under LMIA exemption Code T13. My employer provide me a offer of employment and he paid for Compliance fee which is $230. I also received a support letter from Provincial Government to stated that i was nominated since my initial PNP letter was expired. I applied for my PR application in January 2018. My PR application was received by CIC in February and CIC sent me a acknowledgement of receipt email in March 2018. My medical test has passed in July 2018. I am really frustrated right now. I do not know if i am doing it right because this is my only chance. Please share with me if you applied for restoration status before, I will keep update this. Thanks.
