Default Work permit

Hi there,

I'm currently living with my husband in Toronto. He's a Canadian citizen (born here) We moved to Canada about a year ago... but i've been going back and forth as I'm not allowed to stay longer than six months. He's working and I'm currently doing my forms for the sponsorship. I was wondering if it's possible to obtain a temporary open work permit? How would I qualify while my forms are being processed?

thank you.

thank you.
In order to work, you would have to find an employer who is able/willing to apply for a Labour Market Opinion from HRSDC after advertising on the national job bank for 2 weeks. That there are no Canadians/PRs available/qualified for the job and you meet the criteria. If it is approved then you would have to apply for a work permit at a port of entry. Note though if the job involves food, children, hospitals, you require a medical as well. Note you will not get an open work permit.

By the way, why are you leaving and returning. You can apply for an extension of your visitor status to Vegreville you know.
