Default Questions re PR and TWP

Hi all,

We’ve a few questions around PR and TWP and would appreciate any advice. The short story is we have PR cards but we were unable to sell our house here in Ireland (without going into debt) and could not survive in Canada with a large mortgage still back in IRL. We had come to terms that the move was never going to happen but out of the blue my OH was contacted by an agency for a 2 year city council contract on excellent hourly rates (enough to allow the move and survive). The first interview went well and we are waiting to hear back over the next few days. The agency had also said that a work permit is possible if necessary.

The issue is that our PR cards expire in September 2012 (we haven’t met the 730 days residency required to renew) and wonder what are our options now?

Should we enter and then get the city council\agency to apply for a TWP nearer to the PR card expiry date?
Or must they apply for the LMO now before offering the position (if OH is successful)?

Just wondering if OH is hired as self-employed (ie not an employee of the city council\agency) how does that work with a LMO or TWP?

We understand that we’d have to relinquish our PR status to apply for TWP at POE.

Any help greatly appreciated, thanks.
