Default Working Visa

Hi My family and i have been living in Canada on Temporary residents visas since december 2013 waiting for permanent residency to come through. My husband works full time and i am looking into getting a job also. It states on my visa that i cannot work or go to college etc. Is it possible to change this to permit me to work as soon as possible?

Thank you

Hello

I moved your post to the immigration forum as it's visa related.

What does your husband do for a living - is it a skilled occupation and which Province are you in?
When you say you have applied for PR, what stream did you apply under and have you got PER/nomination (if it was Provincial nominee)?

Depending on your answers, you may be able apply for a spousal open work permit on the back of your husbands TWP - if you do qualify, you can either go to the border (if you live relatively close) and apply on re-entry to Canada or else apply online/by mail.

You can read more here (about halfway down the page): Work in Canada temporarily and also here: http://www.cic.gc.ca/english/helpcen...asp?q=199&t=17

You are very welcome. Once you get Provincial Nomination you should be able to apply for a spousal open work permit anyway, but in the meantime you should be able to get one as his is a skilled job. Going to the border is the quickest - make sure he takes his LMO, contract, work permit, a couple of payslips and you will need to pay $155.

If you are planning on working in healthcare of childcare you will need to have an upfront medical before you go to get the work permit - about 2 weeks before if you go to have one at an E-file Panel Physician.

Sorry for such a late reply my silly email has only just decided to let me now I had a reply!

I also spoke to immigration at North Portal. They said just to pop down with the documents and i can get my visa changed there and then. Im just going to wait for a firm job offer and then take a little road trip!

Thank you for the advice
