Default Question regarding skilled worker with job offer

Hi,

If I was to get a job offer and have my skilled worker application application fast tracked, am I right in thinking that once landed I'm free to then leave the job or am I tied to it for any length of time?

Thanks,

Paul

It would be a bit of a shitty thing for you to do, to be honest.

Once you've landed, you're a permanent resident, and can do whatever you like within the terms of your contract of employment.

I'm just making sure that *should* i go all that way and the job turns out to be a nightmare then I'm not tied to the employer for a long period that's all...

I agree with bazz. Once a PR you're not tied to any job for visa reasons. How long you have to stay with the company all depends on your contract of employment.

Apart from the moral obligation, do consider how it will look to future employers. Work here tends to go more on a referral basis, getting a bad reputation in your first Canadian job won't help.

Is it just your time of the month or is there something more serious this time?
