I've emailed and gotten no response.

Just a heads up, if you do need to travel you can apply for Bridging visa B - which allows you to leave for up to 3 months at a time (with a good reason). I had to head back to Canada twice now, once for a wedding and once for a family emergency. It costs $140, but might be worth it. Good luck!
Ahh ok great, thanks for the bridging info!

Keep us updated with your visa and i will too
