Due to covid19 many international workers who were working in Canada or were to return to canada but cannot have been affected. Our Work permits are expiring but we cannot extend our stay and apply for a TRV since all visa application centres and medical centers are closed for biometrics and medical. We should be granted at least 6 month extension on our work visas or bridging work permits to offset the loss. For eg in order to extend our bridging work permit one must be physically present in Canada. If we dont have a Visa to come back and cant get a visa quick enough because we cant give our biometrics then how can we apply for extensions? Seems unfair. People who were applying for their Permanent residence or already did and have been laid off are also affected since we have to find another job again but in this economy and conditions it's almost impossible. Why are international workers held upto unfair standards? Please grant us atleast 6 month automatic extension on our work visas so we can continue to benefit the canadian economy and canada itself.i myself have been affected with this and so have many of my friends who worked so hard but now everything is falling apart because of covid 19 almost making us feel this is all our fault.
