Default Applying for Open work permit in Canada. Possible?

Hi there, my husband's got a job offer and the company is sorting out his LMO at the moment. He is category B on that profession list. As a spouse, can I apply for a open work permit already in Canada? How long does is normally take? We are planning on travelling together and trying to go asap... Would that be the best option? Thank you!

If the LMO is granted, then as the spouse of a 'skilled' TWP holder you are entitled to an open work permit. You can just get it at the airport when he gets his TWP.

HTH, good luck.
