Hi Gaz,

You can certainly apply for jobs once you have the visa in your passport (or even before), but until you actually go and land and activate your status in Canada, you are not a Permanent Resident, so not legally allowed to work until you've done that. So you need to land first before starting any work.

Re: keeping your PR status, have a read of this which should explain it all (if not, shout with any questions) http://britishexpats.com/wiki/Reside...gations-Canada

Put simply, once you land the clock starts ticking and you then need to spend 2 years out of every 5 years (730 days to be precise) in Canada to maintain your PR status.

Hope that helps.

You need to "land" within a year of your medical, and unless you can get your PR card forwarded to you in the UK you'd be best to stay in Canada until receiving it.
