Program delivery update: Security screening for Bridging Open Work Permit (BOWP) applications

This section contains policy, procedures and guidance used by Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada staff. It is posted on the Department’s website as a courtesy to stakeholders.

August 22, 2018

We have removed the BOWP instruction to officers indicating that they should submit a request for security screening as part of the assessment process. This is consistent with all inland temporary resident extensions, where security screening is not routinely performed.
