Default Family Class & Provincial Nominee Program

Hi,

Is it legal, and/or possible to apply for immigration under family class (my common-law spouse is Canadian) and at the same time look for work in Canada with the hope of getting into the Provincial Nominee Program?
My profession, as far as I can tell meets the requirement: Skilled immigrants to fill critical labour shortages. (Senior J2EE/Java developer & OOA/OOD architect)

Would it be advisable to rather just start looking under the Provincial Nominee program first, as it is processed quicker, and if that fails try family class?

I mean we just don't want to be apart and if I can work, I would like to start as soon as possible.


Thanks for any advice!

You can only have one application in process. Why bother with any pther than family class if you can be sponsored as common-law? PNP will never be quicker than spousal sponsorship.
