I have been in Canada for 5 years and my work visa runs out on April 9th. Work is trying to get LMO approved to extend my work visa but there is a high possibility it won't go through. For my PR, I have done my English test (score8) and my police clearance should arrive this week. I have been told if I apply in Australia then I will get it quicker than here in Canada. If this is the case then should I send the paperwork in now and then if I do have to leave the country request my file to be transferred to Sydney. Any advice would be great on timelines and processes. Thanks.
