If he applies for another job the employer will need to get an LMO and you will have to apply for a WP as you did before. You will need to time it well so that you don't end up having to leave Canada. It may be better to renew with the existing company whilst he is looking.

If he has time left on his TWP then he can quit at anytime - the TWP will turn into a vistors visa for the time remaining on it - meaning you cannot work but you can stay in Canada and thus find another job.

A Labour Market Opinion.

Unless his job is exempt he will have had one in order to get his WP.

Default Re:work permit

My partner and i are working in canada on a one year visa now it is up for renewal.
As the company transferred him they sorted everything out but now we are here we have to sort the visa out ourselves. When my partner was 20 he is now 42 he was a bit silly got involved with the wrong people and smoked and sold dope got caught and got a 12 month sentence do we still have to declare that on the work permit if so is there any implications to not giving us one.

and i heard that after 15 years you dont have to declare it. is that true.

and he got done for defending himself hit a guy once he had witnesses (his friends) so the out come was inevitable, it happened 4 years ago and he got community service for it anyone know if that will go against us.

Further to what destinationnovascotia said .......

An employer has to advertise a job across Canada for three months. If no qualified Canadian resident applies for the job, the employer applies for an LMO. The LMO allows the employer to offer the job to a foreign worker.

The required advertising time is reduced to 7 days in the case of an Occupation under Pressure. And a few occupations are LMO-exempt.

When the employer has received an LMO and offered the job to a foreign worker, the foreign worker can apply for a temporary work permit (TWP).

AmyDavid also has given you valid information.

For more information about your husband not liking his employer and wanting to resign, see the Wiki article called Work Permit Complications.

Okay, now I've seen your additional comments about your partner's police record. I don't know how that escaped everyone's attention the first time he applied for a temporary work permit. The TWP application asks, "Have you or any member of your family ever committed, been arrested or charged with any criminal offence in any country?" If he didn't accurately answer that question on his TWP application form, he got into Canada fraudulently, and that is very bad news.

Even if you are deemed to have been rehabilitated -- which happens five years after the completion of the sentence for some offences and ten years after the completion of the sentence for other offences -- you still have to answer questions about it on your TWP application form.

You are supposed to apply for Criminal Rehabilitation before you even visit Canada as a tourist. See the Wiki article called Criminal Rehabilitation.

I don't imagine this is information that you want to receive, but I hope it'll at least be useful.

The OP is probably in deeper doo doo that he realizes. If he was convicted of trafficking in cannabis, it would probably be equated under the Controlled Drugs and Substances Act, as Possession for the Purpose of Trafficking as Schedule II drug, which the maximum sentence is life. Therefor he cannot be "deemed" rehabilitated, he must apply for it.
