Ask a Canada Law Question, Get an Answer ASAP!
Hello! My name is***** you for your question. I'm reviewing it now, and will post back again shortly.
This is not about the length of the work permit and that is where you may be confused.
It is about the length of your program. The length of the post-graduate work permit is based on the official length of your program and you were not in a two year program.
Do you see what I mean?Please feel free to post back with any follow-up questions you may have. If you don't have any then I hope I have earned a 5 star rating but if you don't feel that I have please don't hesitate to reply back and let me know what more I can do to assist you. Finally, please know that even after you rate me I will be here for you and you can ask follow-up questions if you think of them later on at no further charge of course.
I don't know why that school said that but it is not what CIC says unfortunately.
But did you try and appeal?
What I suggest you do is consult with a local immigration lawyer and have the lawyer write a letter on your behalf to CIC explaining that you took two one year programs instead of taking one two year program but the programs were continuous, you didn't leave in the middle etc and you therefore want them to review your eligibility for a longer PGWP.
I don't know if it will work but it is worth a shot.
It is not fair but I am concerned that the school gave you the wrong information.
But a lawyer who knows the ins and outs and may even know who to call or write will be your best bet of getting this resolved.
I am so sorry this happened to you.
You are very welcome.
Could you please let me know what happens? The post won't lock after you rate me so you can come back at any time.
Thanks and best of luck.
Is there anything more I can help you with at this point in time?
