Subject: A complicated situation.....
  After looking around this forum I think I have a unique situation. Anyhow to get down to it. I am a citizen of the USA, and work for a Canadian Based company. I am engaged to a citizen of Mexico who is currently residing in Mexico. We have tried to get clearance from USA immigration, but to no avail for this reason were trying the Canada option. Since I work for a canadian company I have the opportunity to transfer to Canada for employment. My understanding is taht work permits don´t take long to get. If I move to Canada start working, then get married in Mexico and then apply for my spouse, roughly how long does it take? A Canadian immigration official at the airport told me it takes less time than the work visa once you can show proof of marriage, but I have read it takes 6-8 months, and met someone who resides in Canada and it took 6 months to get his wife over here from India. Please let me know what is correct and if have incorrect information, as well as suggestions.

yes it is complicated because a work permit does not entitle you to sponsor someone. You must be a landed resident.

Thoughts:

If you are an American Citizen, you have a right to bring your wife to he US regardless of her nationality; unless she has a criminal record!

As you are planning to get married, show the same proof to US officials insead of Canadian immigration officers; IF you want to continue in the US.

If you do want to move to Canada on work permit, your Indian friend is right, it may take about 6 months to bring your wife to Canada.

Intercompany transfer is the way to go Spencer. You just have to do the process a little different.

First marry the lady.

Apply for your intercompany transfer and be sure to include her on your application. Once approved you and your bride comes and live as husband and wife. Processing times at Buffalo RPC is days.

Once working and living in Canada get another LMO and apply through Buffalo RPC for permanent residentcy with arranged employment.

When your in love no one wants to wait for years to live under the same roof with their partner.

50% are completed in under two weeks. 46% completed in 7 days or less. 44% take longer then a month so do it correctly!

bless you Roy! I thought that might be the route they had to go but I wasn´t 100% sure. As a work permit holder he is entitled to bring his ´existing wife´ - where she lives really does not really count. If he comes solo, all bets are off.

Spencer, do it EXACTLY how he says.

So I don´t have to be a landed resident to bring my wife, a immigration lawyer told me that I could have a work permit, and then after marrying she could come say she is visiting her husband. And then during this visit we could apply for a work permit for her, showing proof that we are actually married and she would be able to stay. Am I correct???
