I've just been facebook messaging with DS this morning. He's been on the ball and getting his Canada problem figured out, talking to an immigration agent. Apparently the agent at the airport was totally wrong for several reasons. First he's been a visitor to the country several times without any problems, so there was no reason to deny him entry or limit it to 2 weeks. Secondly, with his work visa in progress, he's granted "implied status" as a temporary resident while his visa is in process. The agent told him all this plus directed him to the same info on the immigration website. He's also gone ahead and applied for a "visitor extension". So, he is ok to stay up there and doesn't have to come back. Now we just keep keeping our fingers crossed his work visa is approved soon. The agent looked his application up and said looks like he is very close.
