Been refused a visitor's extension but have positive LMO. Don't know what to do? Cross the border and apply for work permit in Seattle?

Would have thought that would have been what you would do with your LMO

BTW Congrats on the job and LMO

I'm worried that they'll turn the work permit down because on the letter from CIC it says that I have to leave Canada immediately. Will this look bad on work permit app?

Rhetorical question -

Do you really have to show them the letter from CIC refusing you visitor extension ?

I would go to POE and request your TWP with your positiver LMO backed up by copy of job offer/contract of employment, ceritficates for any qualifications you have

Thanks Gaynor. I hope it is as easy as this, otherwise have no idea what i'll do if not.

I guess I just panicked when I opened the letter from CIC today

Think it is only natural to panic when you have to face immigration officers - I was the same when I came to get my open WP even tho my hubby was already here on his TWP

Good Luck once again

Panic over. Went to Seattle and was issued 2 year work permit. Had quite a tough interview though, the IO knew about refusal, I guess everything is on the computer.

Funny thing is, although it's a low skilled visa my husband was asked whether he would like to apply for an open work permit as a dependent. Naturally we said yes and needless to say he is now the proud holder of an open work permit

Yes it is one of the E-LMO occupations. I have another LMO application in which I have been waiting for 22 weeks now, so we decided to put an application in for E-LMO while waiting for the other.
