I was meaning - if they can get PNP go that route the other alternative Ali was saying was for her to get a job doing something with a catagory so OH could get a SOWP.

it's late in the day now, so i don't go and triple check it, sorry...
but: when i went through the pnp route (i'm in bc though and it's been a while ) it was possible to get a lmo-exempt wp based on your provincial nomination (you had to be nominated and your pnp officer had to write a support letter to be included in the twp application).

you might want to look into that if you think that time would be an issue - ie your oh's (next) wp running out before you get pr through your oh's pnp (assuming that that would be the most viable option)

this is the link to the foreign worker manual: http://www.cic.gc.ca/english/resourc...w/fw01-eng.pdf the thing i'm talking about is on page 44.

sorry if that's completely stupid and irrelevant to your situation.

Spoke to VRV imigration consultants about the change that moondevil mentioned. It only applies to skill level O,A & B which doesn't help us any so back to the drawing board. Will keep looking for a job for myself hope to find one soon.

Yes H&R said they will extend OH TWP for a year but if I don't get a job he will have to do long haul to get PR.

If the OP was a financial advisor in the UK can she not apply for PR as the main applicant?

i think we are not talking about the same thing. implied status is something different. i'm talking about a "real" twp.




fwiw i've actually had one of those work permits - it's a regular work permit. you just don't need a lmo (if you look at the fw-manual [link in my post above] there are several exemptions from getting a lmo, this is one of them, outlined on page 44).
my wp was granted because a) i had been nominated by my province for pnp and b) my sponsoring employer needed me to work with them asap. my pnp officer wrote a confirmation letter, referring to r204(c) which i had to include in my wp application.

but hey...

I am now looking for a job as a financial advisor or anything else that qualifies for a pnp. Wondering what the situation will be with my hubby if we dont get PR by the time his renewed work permit has run out. Will he then have to leave the country for 4 months, or will he just not beable to work. Also if I get a job where he can have spousal open work permit is it best for him to take that rather than renewing his own work permit?

Any help or advice will be much appreciated.
We're in a similar situation. Applied for SW under the old system (June AOR) and my TWP expires in August. I'm just waiting for med requests.

My immigration consultant told me not to worry about it- hopefully we'll have PR before it expires. My employers lawyer isnt so optimistic and has suggested we apply to extend the TWP. He reckons it takes around 3 months, so we're gonna get started in the next couple of weeks.

If you're gonna apply to extend the TWP, my advice is to do it sooner rather than later.

My hubbys company has immigration consultants that do it for them. So not something we have to do the worry is that the renewed TWP will run out before we get PR as they only renew for a year now according to OH employer. If that happens then we are stuck.

At least with the new rules you don't have to leave the country for 4 months, so his employer can renew and renew again if necessary while you're looking for work. If he takes the long haul, then you get a Spousal Open Work Permit (new for Alberta) and can work anywhere.

Thanks for that, I didn't know that. We were worried about the having to leave the country for four months bit. Hence the question in the first place.

No more mad pannick now the stress can wait till after the wedding now.
