Post Work Permit on TRV (Visitor Category) while PR Application under process

Hi, need an expert advice regarding the following:
  • Am I eligible to apply for a work permit as an inland applicant (on TRV - Visitor Category) while the PR application under Provincial Nominee Program (Outside Canada Applicant) is already under process (PR Application Submission Date: April 6, 2023).
Regards,

You might need to be a bit more specific - what kind of PR app and what stage of it are you at?

Ok, still more info needed I’m afraid! Which province and which stream? Not all PNP applicants are eligible for a work permit.

And just checking, but you have your nomination already?

OK, then no, I’m afraid not. Only applicants who’ve applied under streams that require a job offer get a work permit support letter with their nomination. You’ll need to wait for PR to move to Canada & work.

If you’re a Brit then hopefully you’ll have PR by the end of 2024.

Good luck.

Let me put it this way:

Can I apply for a bridging visa as an inland applicant (on TRV - Visitor Category) while the PR application under Provincial Nominee Program (Outside Canada Applicant) is already under process?

A Bridging Open Work Permit is only possible if you're already there on a work permit, not for those on visitor visas.

Just seen your edit, but the answer is still the same - you're not eligible on a TRV as per the link above.

Are you actually in Canada now, and if so, when does your visitor visa expire? You must leave before it does unless you switch to another status (i.e. get a 'normal' work permit if you can find a job offer and LMIA).
