Hey thanks for your message but honestly I don’t know about process involved in applying for work permit when you are on TRV.my best advice is that you should consult more than one immigration lawyer for your application.
Best of luck

There was a girl named gurpreet who had similar case like yours.you should search her in FOREIGN WORKER forum
Thanks a lot for your reply.

In CIC website it states that
If a person has valid job offer with approved LMIA can apply for work permit by mailing documents to Canada embassy in USA
Can I apply for a work permit from inside Canada?
Only in some cases. You can only apply for a work permit from inside Canada if:

If you are already in Canada as a visitor, you may not apply within Canada. You must apply for a work permit at a Canadian visa office:

  • responsible for the country where you live,
  • responsible for the country you are a citizen of, or
  • at a Canadian embassy or consulate in the United States of America.
You may be asked to go for an in-person interview at that office. If so, make sure you have all the documents you need to enter that country.
