We've applied 'Inland' (I'm Canadian and my husband is American).
First stage approval including the Work Permit has come through, and my question is this:
The Work Permit we just received has an expiry date, it's in 2014...  the Visitor Extension that we had obtained previously while the PR was being prepared, will expire at the end of Jan 2013. 
Do we need to reapply for a Visitor Extension OR is the Work Permit all we need until the PR application is finalized?
Thank you in advance.
