Default Open Work Permit For Refugees In Canada

My friend applied for refuges status in Canada, which was refused. He has applied for appeal against the decision. For the last three years he is driving truck in Canada. He has got job offer from trucking company from Manitoba. He has already got work permit, which are available to refugee claimant.

My question is can he apply for open work permit as truck driver based on this job offer from trucking company within Canada or He has to leave Canada to apply for work permit.

Please guide

1. If he leaves Canada, he is abandoning his refugee claim, and the removal order that he was issued becomes effective. The removal order bars him from Canada for a certain period of time. You have to check what order was issued to him.
2. It is unlikely that he would be issued a work permit, which means that the person is only in Canada temporarily and his claim to Refugee status shows that he has no intention in leaving Canada, so CIC will not issue a work permit.

If the job offer is valid by HRDC and there is shortage of truck drivers in Canada, even then it would be an issue to apply for work permit within Canada.

Further he has not got any specic removeal order. He got some papers only when he applied for refugee status.

after his rejection, his appeal is still going on

He has no status in Canada if has a work permit that was issued as a refugee claimant, he better read the documents that he was issued, because there is an order in there somewhere.
