My partner and I got our Canadian PR approved back in October 2018, under the SW1 (Federal) status. When we first applied, we had the intention to live and work in Vancouver, British Columbia.
We are currently still residing in the UK, but planning to move to Canada in the next few months. However, most of the job opportunities I am being offered are located in Montreal, Quebec. Reading some information online, it sounds like that if you have a Federal Skilled Worker status, you are free to work anywhere in Canada, even if you haven't selected "QC" as your first option. But I have also come across the "Quebec-selected skilled workers" page, where it says that if your intention is to work in QC, you have to get a specific status for there. So now I am confused.. my questions are:
- Can I legally work and live in Quebec with my SW1 PR Card, or do I have to acquire a separate one for QC?
- Would this bring me any problem later on when I decide to renew my PR Card, given that initially I had selected British Columbia as a place of destination?
- Once I decide to renew my PR Card, what do I need to provide as "Proof of residency requirements", such as to prove my two full years of stay (out of 5)?
