Default Bc pnp now 5-6months

Mentioned in another thread by another poster. I checked and tis so. Is this to actually discourage employers from hiring?
Cant think of any employer who would wait half a year for someone

Welcome BC - Processing Times

It's likely due to it being the summer and people being on vacation. CIC processing slows down in the summer as well.

Ermm.. This would mean that processing speeds up again later

And seriously which employer would go ahead with a six month proposition? I really don't get it apart from wanting to prevent employers from hiring here.

Thanks for this info, does this happen most years siouxie, and in other provinces?

Can you still apply for bridging permit thingy, sorry, forgot name,, or would you have to reapply if your lmia expires?

Thanks

Yes, the summer slowdown happens every year, it's just a case if less staff to process stuff. Ditto for Xmas.

And no, you couldn't apply for a Bridging Open Work Permit until you've got AOR.

HTH.

Well that sucks.
Every time I think I'm getting near a result, I hear or read something like this.
I may lose the sale of my house if they LMO or BCPNP application doesn't come in within the next few weeks, as I won't be able to sign contracts. Really getting depressed now.

Am I getting not getting this? Lol!, what I mean is; in trucking you can apply for pnp after 6/9 months, so adding the 12 week period roughly to get on to pnp (when u don't need lmia), we want to get on pnp before lmia expires, but with 5/6 month processing time u would have to go home/ apply for new lmia/ go to visitor status?

Their offices in Vancouver were dead quiet this morning when I handed in my PNP application.

I'm guessing there may only have been the receptionist and one or two other staff there!

Ah, I see. It was the mention of LMIA that confused me, but it seems you mean the TWP validity and are confusing the two.

But yes, in BC you'd have to work in a semi or lie skilled job for 9 months before being able to apply for the PNP, so if you were only given a years TWP, then you'd potentially have a period when you'd have to stop work if you couldn't get a new TWP.
