Default temporary work permit while spousal application being completed?

We are just completing spousal sponsorship application and we are hoping to get husband PR before my maternity leave finishes end July (wishful thinking?) so that we can be established & I can start work in Canada. Can we go over to Canada and get him a temporary work permit while the spousal sponsorship is pending if we decide to go before his PR comes through? Is it better just to wait it out and not complicate the situation?

Thanks,
Yolanda

You can go over and get him a TWP if he (a) has a job offer and (b) has a LMO - but seeing as the LMO alone will take around 12-16 weeks, I can't see you getting that sorted before July unless he already has a job lined up?

July is possible although a little bit optimistic, more likely to be August/Sept if you apply now - seems to be about six months for most cases going on recent timescales.

HTH.
