Incident at BATHURST NB (CZBF)

C-FASF a Pilatus PC12 was on an IFR approach in uncontrolled airspace below Radar coverage at Bathurst. The weather was poor. The pilot had advised the Moncton Controller his alternate was Mont-Joli Que. The controller advised the pilot to call Moncton ACC on 134.25 for a clearance if he missed the approach. At approximately 1628Z the pilot called requesting clearance and received a clearance to Mont-Joli at 8000 while in controlled airspace. The controller immediately coordinated with the Montreal Controller and passed an estimate to Montreal asked to have the estimate reconfirmed. The Moncton Controller asked the pilot his estimate. Pilot said in about 10 minutes, he was 45 miles from CYYY. The aircraft was in uncontrolled airspace; the clearance was issued near the FIR boundary. The aircraft apparently had missed the approach much earlier and had traveled approximately 55 miles before requesting a clearance. Montreal ACC had no traffic reported in the area.
