Default Work permit

Do I have to apply for a work permit when I land in Canada or can I apply a couple of weeks later? And if so where in edmonton would I do it?

Thanks
Sam

Are you eligible to apply for a work permit? IEC, ICT, LMO or are you just turning up looking to get a work permit. A bit short on details.
Work permits are usually issued at Ports Of Entry when you arrive. Those issued later after having arrived usually entail a trip to the border.
As Edmonton is several hours from the nearest border I suggest you get it issued on arrival in Canada.

By "Land in Canada" do you mean you have been granted permanent residency (PR) status in Canada? If you have, you can work for anyone in Canada.

IF NOT:

Do you have a job offer and a positive LMO? if yes, then you will get your work permit issued at customs & immigration when you arrive in Canada.

Without a Job offer and a positive LMO you can't just turn up and get a work permit on spec.

Previous posts would suggest that husband is Already here on twp

If you are entitled to a spousal work permit then you would do it at the airport when you land , I can't see why you would want to delay getting it.

Yes you can. Work permits can be granted for self-employment, and presenting a business case and application can be done on spec after being in Canada as a visitor for a period of time. It's what I did.

Hi

My husband has LMO. I'll be applying on a spouse work permit.
By just landed I mean iv just arrived in the country.
I was just enquiring about delaying it, not actually doing it. Just a question that's all!
Thanks for everyone who answered!

You can get the spousal open work permit at any time providing you are eligible i.e. your OHs job falls in skill level 0, A or B or where a Province allows lower skill level for certain jobs. You need a copy of his TWP and pay the $150 fee at a Port of Entry (Land Border usually) when flag poling.
