Default Working rules for teenagers.

We are hoping to move to Canada soon and one of our dilemmas is the TWP restrictions on dependant children being able to work.
Our daughter is 19 and will finish uni next year and we have an 18 yr old son who is doing an apprenticeship in joinery at the moment.
If we were to go out there with a TWP neither of these would be able to work so Im wondering if anyone could advise how best to approach the situation. Thanks.

Your only real option is to apply for PR as soon as you get there, once they are PR's then they can work.

Or alternatively they can try and get a TWP themselves but I'm not sure you'll find an employer willing to go through the LMO process for a 19 year old with no experience!

Good luck.

Will your daughter be a student in Canada? If she was in Canada with a study permit she can apply to work part time off-campus (max 20 hours per week).

Otherwise, if you are in Canada in TWP status only they would need to go through the process of obtaining their own work permits (assuming they had job offers).

If you think that sounds unlikely (i.e. that they could get their own TWPs) then the key is really for you to obtain Permanent Resident status, in which case your kids would obtain PR status too and would be allwed to work.

If you have a job offer then I dont know why you arent going for this anyway? Obviously the jobs needs to be a permanenet full-time position but you should be able to either:

- make a Skilled Worker application (assuming you meet points score etc) with Arranged Employment which will receive priority processing

- apply through a Provincial Nominee Program (if the province you are moving to has a suitable one) to get PR that way.

My daughter isnt planning to study there at the moment, shes finishing her degree here. We havent got any work lined up yet as were still weighing up the pros and cons of the different ways of proceeding.
ie. PNP or TWP.

a study permit will cost you $125 (think that's right) and will allow your daughter to work 20 hours at least on a twp, as long as she has a 'course' to study......so might be worth getting her one!!! but put in your pr status asap, as the sooner that you get it, the quicker she can work.....

You should note that you cannot get an off-campus work permit until you have completed 6 months of study.
