Subject: Work in Canada while PR is processing
  Although this may not directly relevant to this forum, I would like to get your opinion on the following.

I completed my studies in Canada and thinking of extending my Temporary visa until I receive my PR. As it will be only a visitor visa, I will face huge financial problems, if PR is delayed more than couple of months. While reading Foreign Workers manual I came across the following,

5.43. Humanitarian reasons R208

B. Temporary resident permit (TRP) holders
Confirmation Exemption Code: H82
This applies to persons who have been issued a TRP to allow them to stay in Canada. If the TRP holder will be in Canada for a long period of time (six months or greater), and they have no other means of support (meaning no family support or other means of meeting their needs) they may be issued a work permit. In the case of permit holders who were refused AFL, and who are waiting to become eligible for permanent residence, officers need not be too rigorous in determining whether applicants need to work because they have no other means of support. The integration of future permanent residents will be assisted by allowing them to work.
An open work permit may be issued that coincides with the validity period of the TRP.


Should I directly apply for a work permit or do it in two steps (first visitor visa and then work permit). I wonder whether my chances of rejecting will be higher if I apply for a work permit at once.

It´s from CIC Foreign Worker Manual

Sorry, but this does not apply to you; you are confusing "Temporary Resident Permits" with "Temortary Resident Visas" (although, kudos to you for taking the initiative to actually read these important manuals, which, seemingly, so many others can´t be bothered with).

Sad to hear that. Well, if I can find a job within 90 day period I wouldn´t be concerned of any of this. But there is only couple of weeks left for me.

How tough are the visa officials on this 90 day limit ?

I guess there is no other solution but apply for visitor visa.

Hey Omer, I just wondering how did you apply the TRP. Do you think that the TRP can cover for the whole immigration process?
