Default For those who have Bunac-ed

I am hoping those with Bunac experience can help me out!

I emailed Bunac with a query last week & they replied this morning, I am a bit annoyed as it looks like a 'cut & paste' answer that doesn't really answer my questions!

Anyway. Is it possible to go to Canada as a visitor to visit for a week or so after you have got your Work Authorisation? Obviously you would declare your intentions at the airport, have a return ticket, and basically explain that you are visting and not activating your visa. (I'm thinking along the same lines as someone visting but not 'landing' ie not kick starting their PR.)

Anyone know if this is possible?

Work Permit is not a visa - it is only authorization to work in Canada under the conditions specified in the permit. There is nothing to "activate", there is no landing process. You have your authorization letter in hand, get work permit issued at the port of entry (if you want to have it issued of course at that time) and what to do after that is up to you. You may go back home and start working in Canada later, but it won't change the expiration date of already issued work permit.

Andrew, you are a legend
This is what I hoped you would say. I have a secondary plan if I could run that past you?

What if someone (British passport holder) was to go to Canada on a visit, cross the US border & head to New York for a visit, then re-cross the border at Niagra and take up their work permit at this stage.

Is there any obvious flaws with this plan?
