I am a British student who has taken a year out of studies to move to Canada with my partner. He has a one year work placement here with a visa. I moved out to be with him for an extended visit of 6 months. I have now been here for nearly a month and would like to get a temporary work permit. Is there a way of applying for a work visa once already in the country and what would be the quickest way to do this? I know that you have to receive your visa at a port of entry so I would have to leave the country and come back in, but this is not a problem.
Any advice would be gratefully received!
