Hi frnds,

I have applied for BOWP day before yesterday. It has been more than 40 hours, but I don't see application number for BOWP in my profile.
Is this normal? When application number will be generated?

"When you submit your application, you must provide all supporting documents listed in your document checklist. You must also include a copy of your Acknowledgment of Receipt letter." ...
If you applied outside of Express Entry, this letter is sent by the processing office after we verify that your application is complete.

If you applied under the Provincial Nominee Program, you must also include a copy of your nomination letter."
"Note: If you applied under the Provincial Nominee Program, you must not have employment restrictions as conditions of your nomination."

"Paper APR: determining if a positive eligibility decision has been made
If the paper APR under one of the qualifying economic classes was submitted by mail prior to January 1, 2015, or was submitted outside of the Express Entry system, it must have a positive eligibility assessment in order for the foreign national to be eligible for a BOWP.

The positive eligibility assessment is considered to be made once the status of the Eligibility field in GCMS is set to “Passed” (or “Met” for FSWC applications submitted prior to January 1, 2015) or an Acknowledgment of Receipt letter or email has been sent to the applicant.
Applicants applying for a BOWP must include a copy of their Acknowledgment of Receipt letter with their open work permit application."

Hi all,

I put my PR application in just last week. I'm currently working under a OWP that will expire 23rd November 2017, so I'm applying for a BOWP now that my PR application is in. My main concern right now is that my Proof Of Medical is about to expire. I had it done last year on 14th September in another PR application with my now ex. Do you think this will be an issue as it will expire during the BOWP processing period?

I know they can extend the expiry date during the PR application process, which I'm hoping they do. I'm just not sure if it will cause issues for the BOWP app her not? I'm thinking of booking in a new medical asap. I should have time to do that and get the BOWP in before November 23rd. Has anyone out there had experience in this kind of scenario?

Thanks for your input.

Hi,

I've tried searching this forum, going all the way back to page 40, and could not find a suitable answer

My application status is blank and has been blank since August 17.

Can someone please inform as to what this signifies????

Hey guys,

My work permit expires on 20th October. I have applied for PR under express entry CEC, AOR 3rd June 2017.
I have since found a better job and will move to different province.
Please advise in the IMM5710E:-

Current Activity section( My last working day at current job is 20/09/2017)
My first working day at next job is 10/10/2017.

I will apply for BOWP next week so I do not know what to write in this section. Please advise!

Thank you in advance!
