I really appreciate your advice. I will look up my MP.Full Deflection wrote: ↑Sat Mar 16, 2019 7:51 pmHave you contacted your MP where you are? When I lived near YUL our MP's secretary was ever so helpful to us and even contacted CIC directly on our behalf. At one stage we spent 6 months living off savings on a visitors visa. It took me a long time to get P.R. and as a fellow Brit I don't think we should be in this situation. Nor should the Canadians who want to live in Britain. Come Brexit we should be free again to reconnect with our overseas families whose societies are built on the values and freedoms exported by our fathers to the four corners of the world: www.canzukinternational.com
My unprayed advice is to remain in Canada and resist the temptation to leave. With the current hiring wave there must be a prospective employer somewhere who is prepared to sponsor you. Any Canadian lass you fancy marrying?
My current job doesn't sponsor, even after much persuasion. Unfortunately I can't marry a Canadian lass, I'm married to my work and dipping the pen in company ink isn't an option
I hope you'll be able to fix something out.willpilot4 wrote: ↑Sat Mar 16, 2019 10:59 pmHey,dereceer wrote: ↑Fri Mar 15, 2019 8:15 pmMy problem with the PNP is the work experience. I had a seasonal float job and had 5 months employment with them, then found a new job but by the time I get 6 months employment in my new job, my work permit will almost be expired.
They want "six months (continuous)" employment, so the 5 months in my old job won't carry over.
I applied for PNP, so I'm hoping this isn't a strict rule.
I am going pretty much through the same as you...
My first advice is that no matter what, work until the very last day of your work permit. And then make sure to leave before the expiration day. You will need that work experience for your PNP application but be careful and make sure that you leave the country on time. This is your worst-case scenario, but I wanted to point it out first.
In your case, you have enough time to find a company interested in hiring you (or the one that you are currently at) and to ask them to apply for an LMIA. Even if it is not granted by the time your PGWP expires, the confirmation that it was requested plus a submission on your behalf for a new work permit, will allow you to stay on implied status.
Then as you already know, will be able to stay in Canada as a worker until you receive the positive LMIA. By the time you receive the LMIA, you have to get all your docs and cross the border. If you have everything, the CBPA officer will issue your new work permit, just like when you got your student visa.
In addition to that, the LMIA will add 50 points to your Express Entry.
If you want, PM me and we can chat.
My work doesn't sponsor, and looking on PilotCareer all the jobs require PR. Where do you find places that sponsor?
