I want to join the Canadian Army. I applied for a work visa and received an answer saying that :
Votre demande pour travailler au Canada a été approuvée. Un permis de travail vous sera délivré à votre arrivée au Canada
Yet I read on Wikipedia that :
Canadian permanent residents are allowed to serve in the Canadian Forces (CF) as long as the Chief of the Defence Staff (CDS) decides it would not prejudice the national interest. It is likely that a requirement of CF membership will be to aim to become a Canadian citizen within four years of enrollment (subject to Citizenship and Immigration Canada's (CIC) processing timeframes). Following changes to the Citizenship Act in 2015, there is also now a fast-track citizenship scheme available to current and past CF members, as well as certain prospective members (negating the requirement to become a permanent resident first in the latter case).
I am not yet in Canada. Am I a permanent resident with a work visa ? Otherwise what else should I do ?
