Like I said, that's strictly my opinion but I am nobody to judge you.
It's well within your rights as guaranteed by the Constitution of Canada to move and take up job anywhere in Canada. I will wait till December 31 before moving to ensure that you file taxes in Sask. for this tax year just to play safe.
I hear you. Thanks so much!

upfront
I obviously have had true intent and still do, but there arent any opportunities/positions in my field anymore. I am a project manager by profession. So far I could find only 5-6 on saskjobs (applied to all suitable positions and no response whatsoever) compared to 100s in Ontario. Should I put my career in jeopardy being morally obligated or think about my family? This is not directed to you by any means, just venting out :)
Hello, friend! Glad you finally landed.
I'd say let's leave morals out of it. You need to work and provide for yourself, that was the whole point of your move. Go to a place where you can find a job. If I were you, I would start applying in ON, while still living in SK. Nowadays most companies would do video conference interviews. That is how I got my current job.

"It was September and the personal trainer had accomplished a goal of his own: He received confirmation of his permanent residency in Newfoundland and Labrador, the province he has called home for eight years."

I think the problem is that he only got his confirmation of permanent residency but they still have one more step to go to make it official, which is landing at the border or in an office. Only after that will he become a permanent the resident officially. The officers at the border have the right to cancel the confirmation if they think the applicant doesn't meet the original requirements.

I could be wrong but i think he did NOT have the PR card, like the posters above I also feel he just had a CoPR and did perhaps flag pole or out / in from US and maybe mentioned plan to work in Halifax temporarily?

Hello Marsia, I do remember you. Great to reconnect. I couldnt agree more, even though I have funds to sustain, I or anyone wouldnt want to exhaust the savings. Despite pure intents, I dont know how else to justify the situation if one doesnt find a job. I can work a menial survival job but that isn't what I hoped to do and defeats the purpose of seeking residency if we moved here for better life. Morality doesn't feed my family nor doesn't provide long term financial health. I might just write directly to SINP.

That's the worst you can do to yourself.

I really appreciate your honesty and I think that's what makes this country so amazing. While I don't encourage abuse of system, I do understand stuff gets out of control sometimes and you seem like genuinely struggling.
1. Remember, you are not doing anything illegal by moving province as Canada gave you the right to do so(Don't listen to what people say in this forum).
2. If you contact SINP or CIC to admit what is happening, you would be seen as admitting guilt which is absolutely unnecessary! Chances are CIC won't even know how to react to your situation. Like I mentioned earlier, I am yet to come across a person whose PR was revoked due to moving provinces.
3. The only thing I will do, is stay in Sask. till December.31 to be eligible to file taxes there before I move. It will probably take you a month to go through hiring process anyways.
4. Don't feel bad, there will be plenty of opportunity for you down the road to give back to the community.

I appreciate your suggestions and decide to stay back through end of January and continue job search in meantime. I came here with clear conscience...be a good citizen eventually and maintain that belief for a country that accepted me.
