连续两轮的快速通道的抽签分数居高不下，而很多在2016年之前提交了移民申请的小伙伴们都在焦急地等待着结果。很多人眼瞅着自己的3年工作工签（post-graduation work permit）马上就要到期了焦急万分。不过大家不用着急，CIC允许符合以下条件的移民申请者延长一年的工签（Bridging Work Permit）用于继续留在加拿大等待移民结果：
- The foreign national is currently in Canada; 申请人必须依然在加拿大
- They have valid status on a WP that is due to expire within 4 months; 申请人的工作签证在4个月内到期。
- They have received a positive eligibility decision on their PR application under one of the Economic Class programs above; and（申请人收到了移民局对其移民申请的资格的肯定确认（下文有详细解释））
- They have made application for an open WP. （申请人已经提交了工签的申请）
For the purposes of determining if a positive eligibility assessment has been made, the processor will review if the Eligibility Assessment value is set to “Passed” in GCMS. If this decision has not been entered yet, for the purposes of this Operational Bulletin (OB), a “positive eligibility decision” will also be considered made when it is confirmed in GCMS that:
FSWP: the “Ministerial Instructions” status has been set to “Met” or a positive Final Determination of Eligibility letter/ e-mail has been sent.
PNP: the “Eligibility EC-QC/PNP” status has been set to “Passed” or the Acknowledgment of Receipt letter/e-mail has been sent by the Centralized Intake Office (CIO).
CEC: the “Eligibility CEC” decision has been set to “Passed” or the Acknowledgement of Receipt letter/e-mail has been sent from CIO.
FSTP: the Acknowledgement of Receipt letter/e-mail has been sent from CIO.
也就是说，对大部分的申请人来说，如果收到了CIC发的email，得到了File Number 那么就是符合CIC的“positive eligibility decision”，就可以续签。
