1) can I apply for a work permit while I am waiting for the application to be processed?
2) how long is the usual waiting time for you to receive a work permit or to approve the application?
1) If we decide to go with outland, do I apply for the work permit after its approved?
2) how long does it take to approve the application so I can come Live in Canada?
Once the outland sponsorship and and resident fees are paid and the application is submitted, our next step is to await approval from immigration. Given that the 9 months elapsed and we received approval, when I return to Canada, I will be a permanent resident thus I will not need a work permit and I will be legally able to work?
