Default PR after marriage to a PR?

A good friend of mine is getting married to a Canadian PR who lives in Canada.

He (the friend) is planning to fly into Canada this summer, get married, put in the spousal PR app, and remain in Canada. What are his options for long-term visitor status, or even an open work permit ?

I heard there is a pilot scheme so people waiting on spousal PR can get an open work permit faster? How would he go about obtaining this?

Thanks !

I'm confused about inland vs. outland spousal apps. What's the practical difference between the two?

I heard a rumour that the big discrepancy in processing times is 'politically fabricated' because the work is identical in both cases.

The open work permit pilot scheme is only for inland applications, right?

The Wiki compares the two routes.

Nope, load of rubbish. It's just because of different backlogs and queues.
