Default WP Extension with PR Application in Progress

In January 2013 my second 2 year work permit will expire.

Right now i'm waiting on first stage approval coming through for PR (Spousal Sponsorship) via London. This was sent late April so we should have that any day now. We hope to have full approval by end of year...

However if that doesn't happen i need to have legal status for January, so need to make sure i have a work permit renewal in place.

I need to submit for a new work permit LMO etc in advance of the January expiry - correct?

I believe Alberta LMO processing times are around 10 weeks but dont quote me on that. Once positive LMO given and copy is sent to CPC Vegreville along with extension request then yes Implied Status kicks in.

So a safe date to begin the LMO application would be....September?

It wouldnt harm better earlier than late as others have found out to their dismay. Plus the employer is responsible for applying for the LMO so have a word with them.
