Default Change of Country of Residency during Process

My husband and I have submitted his Application for Permanent Residency. I am Cdn and he is a US citizen. He is continuing to live and work in the states while things are being processed and I live and work in Canada. We travel to see each other on most weekends.

My question is what are the consequences/repercussions (if any) should he give notice to him employer prior to our Application being finalized. Can he come up as a visitor and have his Passport stamped and stay up here while the Application process continues so long as we notify CIC? Would that change our Application from an Application without to inside Canada and thereby slow it down?

The reason we are exploring this is that his work environment is less than pleasant and there seems little to no room for improvement in the future.

Thanks
Gabrielle

He could very likely come into Canada while his application is in process.
He would have to say he is visiting his wife and if asked tell the
immigration officer that he has an application to immigrate. The
application would not/not change to an Inland case.

On the other hand, if a sponsor (a Canadian citizen) moved out from
Canada after applying for sponsorship i.e. 'Change of Country of
Residency during Process'.

My question is, what are the consequences of changing the country of
residence during process?

Thanks.

Thank you Mr. Humphries
A further question in this regard. He usually drives up, should he ask to have his passport stamped at that time since it will be a longer visit (ie several months)? If so does he just do this at the booth where they ask the usual questions?

thank you.
cheers
Gabrielle

Anyone? I guess it's a tough question even for experts. I am asking
because I couldn't find my answer from CIC website. Thanks for any
inputs.
