Date when a decision was rendered orally – October 15.
Date when the reasons were written. November 06.
Date of Decision and reasons: November 08.
Date of the Notice of Decision. November 17.

If you were issued work or study permits while your refugee claim and/or Pre-Removal Risk Assessment (PRRA) was being assessed, these documents did not grant you Temporary Resident status. You cannot use this period of time in your physical presence calculation.
If you are claiming time as a Protected Person, the only time allowed is the time from when you received a positive Protected Person decision on your refugee claim or PRRA application until the day before you became a permanent resident. Therefore, in your case the date is November 15.
