Subject: resident visa / work permit
  I speak fluently French (native) and English, I have an associate degree in IT with 5 years of professional experience and I have sufficient capital. I´d like to avoid the administrative procedures, move to Canada by my self and ask the resident visa / work permit in Montreal. Can it speed things up ?

I can´t be a fare-dodger with a valid French passport, the point is to speed up things. I know sm ppl has been waiting up to 3 months. So the question was if the things go faster while demanded directly in Canada.

IT is nowhere on the NOC code list at the moment. The only option you have is to secure a job offer or work permit in Canada. That requires a Labour Market Opinion and government approval. NOTHING about this goes fast so you may as well get over that idea really quick.

Sorry guys I still didn´t get it.
Can be the PR demanded directly on Canadian territory or not.

no, a PR cannot be demanded ANYWHERE. Whatever your strategy, you must apply from outside the country.

Moving is not an option without proper paperwork - they will not let you leave the airport no matter how educated you are or how many languages you speak.

Sharon thx for your time and explanations.

In last two weeks I´ve been going through www.cic.gc.ca, http://www.canadavisa.com, http://www.immigration-quebec.gouv.qc.ca, http://www.saskimmigrationcanada.ca .

I simply couldn´t find anything that precise PR demand for citizens who can reach Canadian soil without a visa. I´m a French citizen and I can stay in Canada during 6 months without anything specific formalities.

The PR processing time outside of Canada can variate btw 3 and 8 months. Even if the processing time would be the same inside of country, a professional with sufficient financial funds can dedicate this time to job´s interview that can´t be done outside of Canada.

I´m just trying to comparing the experience from my working stay in Ireland where the PR has been delivered in 2 weeks because I´ve applied directly in Dublin.

there is nothing stopping you from coming and securing a job - but the work permit application must be done from outside Canada.

A work permit is not a PR application (it is for temporary status)- both must be done from outside the country, even if you are visiting Canada while you do it.

You are not eligible to work under either circumstance until your documents are complete. Time lines will not be fast-tracked.

Sharon, your information is very useful. As an IT professional myself, I´ve been looking to try and get a job offer to return to Canada (I got my MA in Ontario.)

How long does the work permit process usually take? Is it something that a potential employer will not want to wait for?

Thank you for your time.

I am not hearing good news on that front. Roy may have more details about Ontario.
