Default Allowed to mystery shop

Wondered if anyone would know.. When my IEC runs out and I'm awaiting my PR.. Would I be allowed to mystery shop as a way of some money coming in. I've asked the company and they say that they pay by cheque and the say that I could do it without having a permit.

But i did just want to see if anyone here (experienced and knowledgable lot that you are!) had experience with this kind of thing?

Thanking you!

IMHO you would need a work permit.
You are working
You are being paid
You are entering the Labour Market.
Is this a weekly thing, monthly or a one off.
Too many variables without knowing all of the details.
But again IMHO work permit needed.

Ditto, can't see how they think that wouldn't need a work permit?! You're working, being paid and doing a job a Canadian could do = TWP needed IMO.

This is what I had thought to be honest.. Hence my asking! Worrying that they say I don't!

Thank god we don't listen to people who are supposed to be "experts" most of the time!

I mystery shop for an American company best mark here in Canada, when you apply to them as a shopper, you must supply them with your SIN as they will issue you with a T4 at the end of the tax year if you have completed 4 shops or more that paid $60 US for each shop.

Regards

So which shops do you shop in or is it a mystery? Are you better than a Secret shopper or is that one step above you and you have to go on a courses and have a background check done to get Secret level of shopping?

Perhaps oddly, it's something I've been interested in trying out. Could you PM me the details of the company so I can check if they do anything near me?
