Canada Provincial Nominee Program (PNP)

The provinces in Canada lacks skilled workforce and inviting foreign-skilled individuals to settle in the country through the Canada Provincial Nominee Programs helps them to gain its skilled workforce.
My spouse is in Canada on a work permit and I hold a dependent visa (visitor). I applied for open work permit in March 2020 and the last update I received on my application was in May, confirming the status of my medical examination.

If I travel to Canada when the travel restrictions are lifted, what will be the process to get my open work permit if my application is approved while I'm in Canada?
