Default Legal status

I am just wondering if you have a PR Visa issued if you can say that you are technically legally entitled to live and work in Canada while waiting to Land.

I know that Landing activates your status, but with the Visa I am wondering if you can change the status on Job sites to legal - which would generate much more response.

We have plans to LAND ASAP if we get our passport request. Although we need to get back to Alberta and look around, we will land in Toronto and spend 3-4 nights there and fly back to progress things this end.

So frustrating all this waiting.

From a job application point of view I guess you could say you're legally entitled until you land, as long as your visa has been issued. It is still possible to be refused entry even when landing, technically, but I've never heard it happen.

I would say your fully entitled to work in Canada from a job application standpoint, no worries there.

The challenge you may have with prospective employers is the fact that you don't have a Canadian address or telephone number (unless of course you do). I've been told by a recruitment agent that this may put some employers off.

Thanks, and you too JET

I'm flying to Halifax on the 6th Feb to apply for a TWP ad to start my new job....It's going to be a looooong day as I'm expecting to get a proper grilling by immigration due to my past. (more than 1 conviction [fined] 19 years ago)
