Default Question regarding business situation/work permit

Hey guys,

I'm in a bit of a pickle. I have my temporary work permit, am married to a Canadian and will be applying for sponsorship shortly. I am also playing in a band on the side and we're thinking about setting up a business account together. I'm worried that because my work permit stipulates I can only be employed by my current employer that setting up the account would go against my status as a temporary worker.

Does anyone have any thoughts on this, or know of how I can find out if I'm allowed to do it?

Any help would be appreciated.

Also, if any of you are in Montreal this Saturday then come along to The Green Room for a good show haha!

Matt

Playing in a band on the side is not legal work and could put you in serious trouble so I would drop the activity for now. Get the sponsored application in pdq and be patient.
