Default "Bridge Visa" TFW to PR

Hello!

Does anyone know anything about this "bridge visa"?
Our Temporary Foreign Worker Visa is about to expire, but of course, our Permanent Residence application has not been completed. It is possible that Canada will approve our PR before our visa expires, but we have no way of confirming that.

Has anyone done this before? I don't know any TFW who have applied for PR, particularly since the new TFW laws went into effect a few months ago (we applied for PR before the new laws).

Thanks!

Katie

There is no such thing as a "bridge" visa. With a PR application filed/filed you are considered in pending status and okay to remain. I could be wrong (hope so) but I don't think you're permitted to continue working on your TFW job. Both LMO and your permit will have expired. You should check this with employer/Fed.Gov't
