Default Work permit expires, work for UK subsidiary

Hello,

I wonder if it is possible to work for the UK subsidiary of a Canadian company as a contractor (via an umbrella company) while on a visitor visa waiting for BC PNP to come through. I'm a EU passport holder and the company I've been working for has a subsidiary in the UK. Thank you.

If you are in canada as a visitor it precludes you from working in Canada.

Unless the work is being done under After Sales Service (covered under a warranty contract on something the Canadian bought from the UK company) then the answer is NO.
Even though you might be getting paid by the UK company you are still considered to be working in Canada unless exempt from a work permit like After Sales or one of the exempt work categories which I suspect you won't be.
Find out if you need a work permit to work in Canada
