Processing times are generally faster if you apply as a family member from abroad.

There is not advantage for applying from within Canada (Immigration wise). As a matter of fact is slower, you won´t be allowed to work until you are approved in principle and it might take up to 8 months or more to get there and if the application is rejected you will not have the right to appeal the officer´s decision.

If you apply from outside, it is faster and as soon as you land in Canada you can start working and you will have the right to appeal an officer´s decision if necessary.

Thank you Bill.But I will have one more thing to ask.
The thing is:this summer I am planning to come to Canada for vacation and make the Merriage there in Canada.So is there any difference in having the marriage certificate of Canada or an Europian country while I will be applying from abroad when I will be back again to Europe after my summer vacation and marriage in Canada.
So in short my plan is to make a Canadian merraige certificate this summer and apply from Europe as spouse sponsership.Do we have to have an Europian merraige certificate to make our process faster????
