What documents should I keep along with the IMM5812 to show the immigration officer on my arrival in Canada?

Hi,

I applied for my wife's open work permit based on my work permit. We applied for it on July 7, 2019& it got approved yesterday(Nov 12,2019). However, the validity of the work permit is exactly 1 year less than mine. Mine is valid until 31-May-2021 while her's is valid till 31-May-2020. Could this be a typo from VO's end or is this the actual process? - Friends -> Need your input here please.

In Parallel, I have also raised a webform quoting the same alongwith the necessary documents.

Also, since I applied inland, there was no PPR & I could see the document number appearing on her application - How do I get Work Permit Record document for her.

Thanks in advance.

Hi guys, sorry for out of sudden question.

I have SOWP and my wife is applying for PGWP. My work permit remarks say I can only work while she is fulltime student.
Can I keep working in the same place while she changes her status from student to worker? As soon as she get the work permit, we will extend mine (with her 3payslips and etc).
My permit still valid, except for this remark.
I heard its ok to keep working, anyone in same situation?

Thx

Hard to know if it is an error or there were some sort of concern so they gave her a shorter visa. You did the best thing by submitting a webform question asking about the discrepancy. I am guessing it may be an error,

You can work until your SOWP expires. Once she has PGWP and 3 work permits you can apply for your SOWP or you can include your SOWP application with PGWP if she is already working and has the 3 pay slips.
