Am I right in thinking then that if we got the TWP at the airport, we wouldn't need to apply for study permits for the kids for school?

I'm really sorry about all these questions! Thank God for this website and all the helpful people on it!
Normally, TWP's have a condition on them that states that you can't work in the health industry, with children or with vulnerable people.

As your husband is a doctor, in order to be able to work in the health profession he is required to undergo a medical and this is best done 'in advance' (up-front) as that way, he could (I believe) get a TWP issued at the airport without the condition applied.

He doesn't need to wait for the LMO, he can make an appointment in the next couple of weeks with a Panel Physician and tell them that he needs to have an 'up front' medical - you would not wait until you came to Canada and the results need to be sent to CIC (by the panel Physician) - 2-3 week prior to you arriving. You can find out details here: http://www.cic.gc.ca/english/informa...exams-temp.asp Click on 'medical exam instructions' then 'Undergo your medical exam before you submit your application'.

None of the rest of you are required to undergo the medical, just him.

If you apply at the airport for the TWP you don't need to apply for study permits, plus you will be able to apply for a Spousal Open Work permit at the same time.

I wasn't sure about a couple of details so glad someone else has answered.... You might want to get an upfront medical too MM.. I got my done here, but it was just extra hassle, I should probably have just got it done in UK.

Forms are in with the CNO, thanks for asking, so will wait in due course to be assessed, and get a different job in the meantime.

I seem to recall BC needs you to have paeds as part of your GP training, obviously best check with them but, and I know you have a little ones, is there anyway you could fit in some extra with local hospital before you go? Snoopdawg went about it, and is in BC too as a Family Physician so you could pm Snoop to check out details- very helpful answering questions for us.

Good luck for the next few months ahead

Thanks Siouxie- that clears a lot up!
We will look into the medicals straight away.
Tirytory - yes think I read that post last year by snoopdawg about the paediatric requirements and that they did extra sessions in a local hospital. We'll have to make a decision about the one soon.
In the last couple of days though my husband has been having a bit of a time of it with the Royal Colleges for Canada and also for BC. Won't go into the details but he has been a doctor for 20 years and a consultant for 11 and he's having to find documentation from 1993 to show what he actually did on a day to da basis during his training posts! Most of his supervisors have retired and some have sadly passed. He's had letters sent from the RCOG here and that doesn't seem to suffice! Then there's the MCCEE! It's expensive ($1700) to sit that exam and its like doing your finals again which us difficult when you've been a specialist for so long! If it was just about the LMO and the TWP which I originally posted ( lol) things would be fine! Then there's the $3150 to get his training assessed for eligibility to sit the Canadian obs & gyn exams when he's here ( which he has to do within a year).
Gradually the elation of the job offer is turning to worry and stress

Ah sorry MM. At various points we were very discouraged about how hard they made it to work here. I'm glad we persevered, but I guess that's why it took so long to get here on a temp work permit.. Each part of the process seems to throw up new problems!

Thanks. My husband is a bit exasperated as to how to get in touch with these people who have retired and just how to prove what he did in his training when back in the day there wasn't the structured week by week training programmes they have now and clearly have / expect in Canada.
Also just getting stressed because wanted to be over there fir the start if the new school year to minimise disruption to the kids
Stressed enough thinking about everything we have to do for my husbands application not least the cost that I'm not going to bother sorting out my working over there until we're there.
