Work permit holders who apply for PR can keep working in Canada with BOWP, when they are still waiting for IRCC’S decision on their application.
Now there is no need for the BOWP application to be done within four months of the expiry date of the work permit. Individuals, whose status has expired and are allowed to restore their status can also apply for BOWP.
