Default TWP's....how long before you need to land?

Hi, just a quick question.

I have just received TWP's, how long are they valid for? ie, how long have i got before i need to land in Canada?

There is nothing on the permit that says i have to land within a certain time limit...

Any thoughts?

What a suspicious question. The employer should be waiting for you unless you are a BUNAC.

nothing suspicious, just that i spoke to new employer who advised they were going through a "slow period" and work would start to pick up in the new year!!

Just thought there may be some restriction on TWP like there is on PR where by you have to land within 12 months.

After all this time and effort i hope they aren't gonna back out, coz they have been really +ve up until now....

Fingers crossed..

The temporary work permit usually will be issued for a period of time that ends when the validity of the labour market opinion ends.

The term for which the labour market opinion is valid is the limiting factor.

Thankfully you got a heads up from the employer.

My essential concern would be that arriving with a TWP that has largely gone unused would raise suspicions that the job was not solid or genuine. Since the ER is wavering that makes the situation justifying the original approval questionable. Not your fault of course.

Hey Jim, thanks for your concern.

My new employer has been really supportive and positive throughout the whole interview/ job offer/ LMO process, so i had no reason to suspect the job offer was not solid or genuine.

They just seemed a bit laid back about the whole thing when i spoke to them last night and couldn't get them to commit to a start date!!

They've promised to get in contact today, so we will see what happens!
