work permit

Post by kolobok » Thu Oct 02, 2014 12:38 am

Hi there
I am new to the site and to a lot of things.
I have British passport and live in the UK at the moment.
Can I come to Kelowna and find a job there and apply for a work permit being in Canada without leaving the country?
Thanks.

Hi kolobok & welcome to A-OK

I'm not overly familiar with the work permit process, but I think that TWP's are normally applied for from outside of the country, although there may be exceptions. Quoting from the CIC website ... "Sometimes, you can apply as you enter Canada or from inside Canada, but many of the requirements are the same".

Here's a link regarding Temporary Work Permits from the official government website:

... still here adding info that newcomers might find helpful.
