Canada work permit processing time
My lawyer is putting in work permit application next week. Current processing times from USA is 19 weeks. Would anyone be able to share what does the actual processing time look like based on experience?

Also now the worst of COVID has passed do you think this time would improve?

Applied for ICT Work Permit from US on May 4, 2020. Still waiting on passport submit request. Indian citizen.
Applied for ICT work permit (LMIA-exempt) to transfer from Seattle to Toronto, Canada. Work permit application was submitted by company-hired attorneys (Pee-Dublew-See) on **May 4, 2020**. I submitted biometrics last year when I applied for a temporary resident visa to visit Canada. No updates on work permit yet i.e. no passport submission request and lawyers are being unhelpful. I am an Indian citizen. IRCC says 19 weeks but I doubt it.

Hoping to see if you any of your applied recently and have received passport submission requests/have work permit in hand. Good luck to you!
