Default what to do whilst pr is processed???? help

Hi...situation is that our TWP expire mid July. Husband is skilled worker but job ends soon. We want to apply for residency as he is not only skilled worker but also has Canadian Experience. Which is best to apply under?
Question number 2. Once TWP expires and we have lodged our PR applications, can we keep working under 'implied status'?? What can we do? Any suggestions please?

From my understanding, implied status won't apply if you've applied for PR, but only if you've applied to extend your TWP. So you'll need to get a new LMO sorted, and preferably sooner rather than later as a lot are being refused at the mo so it may need to be applied for more than once. Do prepare for him being unable to work for a while if he hasn't yet got the new LMO/TWP as you've left it rather late.

And either route would work, probably FSW will be a bit quicker but then you've got to have IELTS first which will add time on to that.

HTH, good luck.

It's the English exam he'll need to take for FSW. There is a list of abbreviations in the Wiki for future reference.

Oh, and a quick forum search shows that applying for PR when you are on a TWP does not give you implied status, so he will need another LMO/TWP. Given your timeline, I'd try and get his employer to apply for the LMO as a matter of urgency, bearing in mind of course that they'll need to advertise the job again first for minimum of 2 weeks. You're going to be cutting it really fine.

I also forgot to mention yesterday that if he applies for FSW category 2 he must have a valid work permit both when he applies and when he gets PR.

Do you mean the actual job ends soon, i.e. that he will not have a job at the end of this TWP? If you want to stay in that case, find another job asap, because either route FSW or PNP will require a permanent job offer.
If you have a permanent job offer and LMO, go PNP route. This will give you implied status once you have the PNP approval before it goes to your VO. There is also less paperwork for PNP.
If the current job offer is permanent, then get the LMO renewed NOW, just in case there are any queries or delays.
My husband's TWP runs out in late August, but you have 6 months to activate a LMO to the TWP, so he started the advertising etc in early May.
His company just got the positive response to his renewal yesterday (he is currently working in B.C) and they gave him 2 years. Our Cat 2 FSW has already been running for over 9 months and there is no implied status with that process, so we are very glad to have been given 2 years. Wish we had gone PNP, but we just didn't know any better at the time.
Good Luck.
