My work has sent off their first part of the PNP application back in January but this is still being processed.

My visa expires in October so it is unlikely I will have my PNP in time as I have not even sent off my own part of the PNP application yet.

Does anyone have any ideas how I can remain working in Canada while my PNP is being processed? I can't extend my visa as I am on the IEC.

Any suggestions would be much appreciated.

Is your PNP in BC? Im pretty sure they have stopped accepting them although hopefully yours is in before the cutoff. As far as staying in the country is concerned I believe you can go on as a visitor for six months but cant work. Unfortunately this wouldnt likely be long enough for you to get your PR in time. I believe you will have to leave the country. I could very well be wrong and most likely someone more knowledgeable will correct me shortly lol

Nope I'm in Ontario. Once you have your PNP letter apparently you can go to the border and get a work permit. But I just highly doubt I will have my PNP letter anytime before my visa expires.

I would think the only alternative would be if your employer is willing to apply for an LMIA to get you a work permit in the mean time? I was in the same situation- working on an IEC visa which was due to expire while waiting for my PNP letter. Fortunately my PNP letter of nomination came through one week before my IEC expired! We made a quick dash to the border to get new work permits- fingers crossed you'll be as lucky.

After complete radio silence for 7 months we got RPRF requested last week, updated to in process end of last week and medicals received line added in today.
I'm hoping that means it will be processed before end of November and we will not have to re-do the medicals.

No my employer is not willing to do an LMIA as it has been challenging for them in the past. Plus I doubt there would be enough time for that.

Do you think speaking with an immigration lawyer would help?

No. You will either have the employer apply for the LMIA, hope you receive the PNP nomination letter before your current work permit expires or switch over to visitor status if neither of the 2 above come through.
You could politely explain to your employer that it is your intention to continue working for them and what would it cost them to hire someone new unless they are willing to lay you off then rehire once you get the PNP support letter.

AINP (Alberta PNP) nomination received about October 10,2014
PR Application received by CIO Sydney October 16, 2014
'Placed in process' email' received March 19,2015
received request for medicals March 24,
Meds done and sent in about April 7, 2015
CIO Sydney requests :copy of passport page,pol. certs.,Medicals,RPRF fee, July 2,


This email today(July 2, 2015) says if I already sent this stuff , "If you have already completed all the requirements mentioned above, you can ignore this letter". I have already sent ALL of this with my original application in October 2014. What I am worried about is , has CIO lost some of this stuff? I'm thinking seriously about calling them and asking them if these items are still with my application. I would hate for them to tell me 3 months from now they don't have this or that and my app is delayed. I don't know what's best : phone call or email?

I had three friends all email/text me over the weekend asking how long from "Final Payment" request to flag poling ? Reading on here it could be a long time, up to six months ????? Is that normal now as its a long time since i've been involved in immigration in any way.

Received email today from CIO Sydney saying I need to send RCMP Police certificate within 60 days. I'm pretty thorough, really wondering how I missed that being a requirement.
Anybody know how long RCMP fingerprint and record check take? If CIC had just made it clear that that was required, I would gladly have send in with all my other police certain at time I submitted App.

I have never heard of that before. You sure its RCMP? I thought they did that themselves.

The RCMP one is because you probably have a similar name, dob to someone in Canada with a record. You didn't miss it in your initial application this is something CIC can request at a later date.
