I am here in Alberta on a tourist visa, and i applied and got a job offer and LMO approval, the recruitment specialist told me to have a change of status application to Vegreville and i submitted the required documents yesterday, Now I just found out from researching and forums that I cannot apply for work permit within Canada. What can I do? I also paid a processing fee of 150$. PLease help if anyone has experience or information. Thank you
1. Pretty stupid recruitment specialist.
2. Your application will be refused and returned, so you if you don't require a medical, then you can head down to the Border and "flagpole" and apply for your work permit at re-admission to Canada.
