I arrived in Canada on a closed(employer-specific) work permit and was terminated. This happened amid the coronavirus pandemic. My employer quickly terminated me after bringing me here on a global skills strategy program, and my company has been reporting losses for quite some time. I was abused at work, I was told to do something and then terminated for doing that. It appeared fixed.
Now, I can wait for six months and wait for express entry to work out, thus having a break in my employment, or can apply under abuse of employer and try to get an open work permit. The latter is even suggested by a lawyer.
Would this look bad on my record when I apply for citizenship down the line?
