Default PHEW! And last minute advice

Hey guys

I posted a couple of questions on here about LMOs recently. Well, with just four weeks to go before our visas ran out, my fiance was offered a job, we submitted the LMO two weeks ago and today, a week before our visas expire, he found out it had been approved, yey! It's skill level A on the National Occupational Classification Matrix so I should get an open work permit as his common law spouse.

Anyway, we are going to the UK for two weeks next weekend and the plan was to try and get our new work permits at POE back into Canada (with the LMO, confirmation of his medical and proof of our common law status, etc).
I wondered whether:
Anyone has done that and how it went?
Whether it's possible to do it at Pearson Airport BEFORE we fly to the UK, so we don't spend the two weeks wondering what if?

Thanks for all your advice so far

Congratulation

Don't think you can do it before you fly out but if you have all the paperwork (LMO etc.) you can do it when you come back.
My OH got his LMO send to England and then got his TWP at POE (Ottawa) and said if you have all paperwork then it is quite easy, don't forget to take the LMO tho.

Have a look at this: http://britishexpats.com/wiki/TWP_:_...o_apply-Canada

Hope that helps

Good luck

Thanks @Nina, we are so, so, soooooo relieved!!!

Yeah I thought it would prob have to be on the way back but I remember that when we came in for our BUNAC visas last September, that something was wrong with my fiances and he had to go back to Pearson to correct it (but not cross the boarder) so wondered if we could do the same to get a new one but, no matter, we have the LMO, yeeeeeeeeeeeey!

OH get TWP at Calgary last Sunday. With LMO and job offer letter in hand, no problems whatsoever.
Don't worry!
