Hello, I have been working here in Edmonton, Alberta for almost 2 years as a TFW. I finished my contract from my employer last April 10, 2010, now, i have a new employer they already applied a request for LMO, and was given a File number.
On May 8, 2010 my actual temporary status will expire so there's a note in my previous work permit that i should leave Canada on May 8.
1. What does a file number mean, is it an assurance for a positive LMO?
2. What will i do so that i can still stay in Canada after May 8 because i want to wait for the approval of the LMO so i can apply for a new work permit?
3. Do i have to leave Canada and wait back home for the new LMO or apply for Visitors visa or anything just not to lose my temporary status?
Thank you so much i know that your advise would be a great help for me and others who are in the same situation.
