Can land in Canada on work permit while processing for PR?

My company has finally confirmed me offer letter for Canada branch. They yet to issue it. This will boost my current EE profile and ensure speedy ITA in next slot. As per my knowledge company will give offer letter on work permit visa with fixed joining date. It is unlikely to get PR within that stipulated time.
Is it fine to land in Canada on work permit while PR is being processed in parallel ?

Congrats. Your PR and work permit are independent and can go on together.
you can land on work permit and then if you spend N days on WP before your PR is approved, N/2 days can be counted towards your citizenship residency requirements.
