Default Work Visa Regulations

My wife has a confirmed job offer in Toronto (two year contract) and
has had a temporary work visa already approved. I will be accompanying
my wife and would hope to work while I am there (I am a qualified
nurse). Does anyone know if I can take work on my wifes visa or do I
have to apply for a separate work visa in my own right. If I do need
my own is better to arrange this before we leave or after we arrive in
Canada? Grateful for any advice

Default Re: Work Visa Regulations

If your wife's work permit falls under specially skilled category ( for
example software developer ) then you are eligible for a open work permit.
That means you can work to any employer.
But Canada usually does not recognize foreign medical professionals, so you
may want to check on that

Bear in mind that you still will have to apply for this open work
permit and get approved (or else) by Immigration Canada.
