Default open work permit - final approval

we rec'd AIP and "final approval" at the same time -- file transferred to Scarborough office - now we await the call for the final meeting.

So, in order to work we can either wait for the meeting or apply for the open work permit (which takes about 50 days according to the website) so not sure what to do.

I think we can apply for a temporary SIN number with the documentation we have, and will not need an actual work permit or letter of offer -- it would be a temporary number (with a "9").

What would happen if I started to work without a work permit, prior to receiving the actual open work permit, or prior to receiving final PR papers?

Before everyone gets all excited, I know it is circumventing the system I am just trying to evaluate the risk. I have a potential employer who is willing to wait a month or so, but not 2-3 months and I would hate to pass on the job.

Or, is there any other advice?

Don't even think about working without Work Permit or PR status.

Depending from the workload in local CIC office you may wait substantially
longer for the interview than for Work Permit. So, if you are eager to start
working and don't mind application fee then apply for open WP now.

If you need to work quick(er), then pay $150 and get a open work permit.

Otherwise you will need to (i) wait for your interview, and (ii) wait
for your PR card to arrive. HRDC will not give a permanent SIN to
inland applicants who don't yet have their PR card.

Btw, if you try working before your landing interview without a work
permit will most probably screw your entire residency application !!

Without a work permit you cannot work, and the cost of doing so could be
drastic - such as removal.

However, if being employed with a WP but later getting layoff, can one
go for finding a new job with the same WP?
