Leaving Job-Need Advice

Postby veggiemeggie » 01 Nov 2011, 03:56

Hello All,

I want to leave my job. I don't have another job lined up as it has been difficult for me to travel to and from interviews as my area is somewhat remote currently. I thought the most logical thing to do would be to just move and find a job then. My visitor visa has been extended since I don't have a work permit yet ( it's being processed). My question is: If I quit my job and the permit gets cancelled does that nullify the extension and will I have to make a run immediately?
I know it is wiser to get a job first but I wanted to know what my options are.
Has anyone ever just quit a job and found a new one? I heard that you have two weeks to transfer your ARC but I don't even have one yet.

Help is appreciated.

Thank you
veggiemeggie

Nothing will affect your visitor visa extension because you're not supposed to work on a visitor visa. For god's sake, don't tell them!

Just change your job and process the new permit, then change your visa to a residential one and get your ARC. You won't have to do a visa run unless you're at the end of the extendable term, and they should extend it again if a work permit's in the works.

FANTASTIC News! Thank you!I have been a dumb dumb in the past but I would not tell the CLA anything. I just thought that maybe if the permit was cancelled while it was in process, the CLA would take it upon themselves to take back the extension. Yes, I am paranoid. I have sense taken this advice and moved my ass to a more desirable location. Had an interview yesterday and another on Monday , think I'll be ok...extension is until the 16th. I hope I'll be ok!
Many thanks and praise. :notworthy:

Cheers
