Default Husband has TWP and family question

hi

My husband has a TWP. Me and the kids will fly out in the next month, but I'm not sure what to expect when I arrive at the airport. I will be on my own with the children. What documents will I need at port of entry? and what visa do I apply for ? What visa do I apply for, for the children?

Thanks

What is your citizenship? What is your husbands occupation and do you know which skill level he falls into if thinking of getting a spousal open work permit.
If you are UK citizens on UK passports and have a copy of your husbands work permit you will just show that to CBSA and they should issue you with visitor records.
You don't apply for visas when entering Canada.

Hi

I'm British. My husband has a Gas Fitter TWP and has a 2 yr contract. I would like to be able to work also after we settle. I'm a qualified Teaching Assistant here in the UK.

Thanks

Your husbands NOC code should fall within skill level B in major group 72 which enables you to get a spousal open work permit. You will need a copy of his work permit and pay $155 for the work permit and $100 open work permit compliance fee. If working directly with children you will also need to have a medical exam.
Medical exam requirements for temporary residents (visitors, students and workers)

Children will either be issued their own visitor records or put on which ever document they issue to you. make sure all passports are valid for the duration of your husbands work permit.

I don't think you will be able to work here as a teaching assistant- it's called an ECA over here and don't think they will recognize your qualification. Maybe something to research!!

Even if you couldn't get a job as a TA elementary schools my kids have been to frequently appeal to parents to work as paid lunchtime supervisors. I know it wouldn't be many hours, but it would at least be a start? School bus companies seem equally keen to get drivers, if you could deal with that. Good luck.

I used to work as a dinner lady many moons ago , and part time work to fit around the kids would be ideal.

UPSY is an unknown quantity at this point

My open work permit issued last month, states I can not work with children or in health as the first of three conditions, it's not a problem for me, but you may want to check how to get this condition removed before you arrive if working at a school is part of your plan.
Good luck

For the op... You need to have an upfront medical to remove those conditions before you land...

When we came across the kids needed to apply for study permits at the POE, maybe things have changed since 2006

Agree with the previous posters, there are restrictions to the "Open" work permit. Also not sure if you can come in advance of the principle applicant and be issued a TWP best check with POE before departing

No need for a study permit for K-Gr12, just ask for a visitor record.
