Yes you will, as long as your record is clean. I never took my crc and was never asked for it. They do there own check.

So, once PNP has been accepted, does that mean I then have to run out the rest of my current work permit and then get my company to apply for a new LMO with the risk of rejection, meaning everything is up and I have to return or does the acceptance of PNP by the New Brunswick provincial government mean that I will be guaranteed a work permit until actual PR has been accepted or denied, which will probably be quite a few months after the original 12 month work permit is up.

Also, wouldn't the issue of a mere six month work permit put a spanner in the whole works and make it a pointless exercise? If HRSDC dont agree to extend your work permit, you wouldn't even get the chance to apply for PNP, let alone be denied it later on.

Apply for PNP and submit you PR at the same time, ie. you give all your papers to NB PNP people, they check the PNP stuff and then forward onto PR people it saves time

So you can keep renewing your work permit up until 24 months on the one original LMO? I always thought that the LMO was only good for 12 months and after that a new LMO had to be obtained if you wished to extend from 12 to 24 months, unless you are lucky enough to get a 24 month work permit to begin with.

I'm not having any goods following at all so thats ok. Is this $10000 the value of goods to follow, or the amount of actual money you bring, or intend to transfer to the Canadian bank account once its open? If things look like they're going well after a few months, I'll probably look into transfering quite a bit of money from my UK bank account to the Canadian one, but thats it.

Its 10grand money,,,
transfering money, get all you local banks info efore you go,, the IBAN codes etc. and ask what the charges are aswell,,, remember the route your money takes can be quite complicated,each clearing bank wants their %, ask your bank if its worthwhile to "Share" the transfer,, this means the recieving bank pays some of the charges, have a good long chat with your bank or institution

I was just wondering if the date of the return flight would influence the length the work permit was issued for? I ask because I booked my return flight for late January, not because I want to return then, but because I was having trouble booking a later date. I intend to amend the date later to a time I want to visit home or something. Do they require to see your return flight info as its a temp permit your on, and if they see my return is only 7 months after my arrival, might they then only issue a 6 month work permit? This six month business has got me worried, I had thought it was just a matter of either 12 or 24.

Don't book a return flight .. one way Your new employer should pay for this and the the return flight if things don't work out.

Apparently they are issuing one year work permits at Calgary Airport.

Too late now. It was booked weeks ago. They told me to book a return flight and have the return part for whenever I want. Its crazy though, buying a return was £150 cheaper than buying a single, how the heck does that work out?!
