Hi Cayuse,

Hi Smileguy

My employer has just applied for PNP approval.

I have a few questions...

1. Which category did you apply under- International student?
2. how much time did it take for the employer to get approved?
3. How much time did it take for your application to get approved at PNP?

4. Did you ever call PNP to find out about your application status?

thanks cayuse, for the info. it does seem like medical's are taking longer right now. i have ask five
other folks that had medical's done in sept. to see if they have been informed that med.s were received.
i have not heard back yet from them. i just want to know if they are running slower right now or just not posting
on ecase. i am not suppose to contact them until (90days) 11/25 as letter stated, but on 11/26 if i have not heard
anything i will contact them if ecase doesn't show med.s received. best of luck to you. i hope you hear something
soon. i am tracking you and other's that have sent med.s in.

Hi Cayuse,

I have a question.
I am filling up the Ontario PNP Nominee Application.
There is a section for entering the "Citizenship and Immigration Canada Document Number"

Could you tell me where it is located on the work permit?

Waiting for your reply.

Hi Neochap,

I guess your employer has recently applied for nomination and u have received the employer prescreen approval.

Could you please tell me when was the employer prescreen application received by pnp office and when did your employer receive the approval.

I have applied under international category and pnp office received file on oct 27th, 2009. How long do u think it is going to take..

2. Also my employer says that he did not receive any file number or any mail from pnp office...is that not everyone gets an acknowledgment from pnp office..

Hi opnp1

1. employer prescreen application received by pnp office: mid of september
employer receive the approval: mid of November

It took exactly 2 months for the employer to get approved.

2. Yes, everyone gets an acknowledgment from PNP. My company got the file number in exactly 3 weeks of application.

Even I was waiting desperately for the file number.
One thing you can do is call PNP just ask them if they have received the application? that is what i did.
They told me the date that they received the application and said that they were processing it.

This way i knew that file number mail would be on its way.

Hope this helps

Hi Neochap.

Thanks a lot for your information. I deeply appreciate that.
Do you know is there a chance to get the employer approved within 4 to 5 weeks. or is it , it will definitely take upto 8 to 9 weeks. Can I call pnp office and enquire about my employers preapproval process..will they answer me..becoz i am an employee not the representative from company....

I have been to several forums online, and after going through the timelines of various candidates, I found that Ontario PNP is taking approximately 2 months for employer approval and 1 month for nominee approval in 2009. Last year (2008) it was different, it was taking 1 month for employer and 1 month for nominee approval.

If your employer has been previously approved then it might take less time but otherwise it is taking 2 months.

Here's what i did. I called up PNP saying that "my company has applied for employer preapproval at Opportunities Ontario PNP and we haven't received any confirmation mail about our application. Its been 2 weeks."

The lady at the other end asked me the company name and then said she can confirm that we have received your application and are processing it."
And then in a weeks time i got my file number.

One more thing, when they send the company the mail about the file number, they also mention that NOT to contact PNP regarding the status of the application as it will delay the application processing.

Which category are you applying in ? International Student ?

Hi Neochap,

Thanks for your comments. Yes I am applying under International Student category. PNP office received my employers file on Oct 27th, 2009. Till not the company hasn't received any file number. My employer is applying for the first time...

Do you think will I be able to get the employer approved before Christmas closure. Thanks Neochap....

Considering the fact that your employer is applying for the first time, I feel that you will get the approval around Christmas. I just hope its before Christmas.. :-)

HI Neochap and all the others!

I got my Nominee certificate early in November and am planning to take a trip to Niagara to get my work permit. But I am wondering:

What is your experience with the work permit that goes with the PNP certificate?

Did you receive an OPEN work permit or a CLOSED work permit (employer bound)?

Did you apply for the WP by mail in Vegreville or did you get it in Buffalo/crossing the border in person?

My recommendation letter from OOPNP states my employer and I hope the cic officers is not going to take this as a reason for giving me only a closed WP instead of the usual open WP for LMO exempt categories...

Thanks a million for sharing your experience!

hi cayuse,

I received a letter from buffalo a month ago saying that I had to pay the right of permanent resident fee which is $490. Now I think I have to wait for the passport request email. I've heard some stories that for some people the passport request email went into their spam folder and they noticed that after a long time.
I wonder if you take a look at the email you received and tell us the sender address of it so we can add it to the safe sender list to avoid it going to spam folder.
my second question, when did you receive the letter asking the right of permanent resident fee?

thanks a lot for you help,
