Hello everyone:

After months of looking for work I've just landed my first contract
position. I don't have the contract in my hot little hands yet nor has it
been signed yet either. I've asked to have it prior to commencement of work
on April 1st. I'm getting the impression from the client organization that
I likely won't have it until sometime during the first week of work.

Should I be concerned about this? Do I need a letter of intention or letter
of agreement prior to starting?

I seem to recall a post or two from Canadian tech writers on this board
before. If anyone has some sagacious words of advice, from the Canadian
perspective, I'd love to hear from you.

Thanks
Sarah
