Work permit reprieve

I was relieved to find out that extending my post-graduate work permit should be straightforward. The Government of Canada had recently extended the post-graduate work permit program from one year to a maximum of three years, although the work permit can’t last longer than the period of studies, so I can renew it for at most another year. It was difficult not being able to look beyond October of this year, and I’m glad that I have a little more leeway now. It’s still probably not going to be enough time to get my permanent residency application completely resolved, but I’ve assembled most of the paperwork and I’m just waiting for two more pieces. Yes, I’ve been remiss, but I’ve been focusing on other things. =) All in good time…
