I also read in one of the above mentioned links that spouse of the person holding L permit doesn't can take up employment with permission. So now my husband visa( L permit) has got approved. I will be coming later through family reunification. Now according to above information I will have to take permission from the local canton, am I right? Franklin OSummers as you being a practising architect, I would like to ask you that which skills do I need to learn that are in demand in Switzerland currently? I know AutoCAD, I had learnt Revit but now I need the upgradation of it, what else will be helpful to seek a job?

Yes, that is correct. An L dependent permit holder has to have authoritisation from the Swiss authorities to be able to work. From the Foreign Nationals Act:
"Members of the family of a short stay permit holder (art. 26 OASA) do not have a right to gainful employment. The gainful activity is subject to authorization.
On admission, a request by the employer respecting the pay and conditions of employment customary in the locality and in the branch must be made. In addition, members of the family of a short stay permit holder (art. 26OASA) must have professional qualifications (personal qualifications, Art. 23 AuG).
The possibility of gainful employment for family members is related, according to art. OASA 26 and 27, to the duration of the authorization of the person granted family reunification. If the residence permit of the spouse is not renewed, the members of his family cannot claim a right to pursue their gainful employment (art.6, para. 2, OASA)."
Basically your potential new employer has to ask on your behalf for the work part to be added to your residence permit. If you and he meet the criteria laid out then he will be able to employ you.
