With the new rule for inland, though, it means you can apply for a work permit when you apply, and you should have it reasonably quickly. If you are on IEC and your IEC expires, you'll still have to wait for your work permit to come through before you can resume working; if you're on a TWP or similar (i.e., a work permit that can be extended) then you can work under implied status until your work permit comes through. Again, THIS DOES NOT APPLY IF YOU ARE ON IEC, SINCE IEC IS NOT AN EXTENDABLE WORK PERMIT! /brokenrecord
No I think they'll change the rules just for me.

If I live in London UK with my Canadian spouse and Canadian child, how much discretion would I have on making an inland vs outland application? E.g. could I simply visit my in-laws in Canada and, while visiting, make an inland application? Or would I need some sort of medium-term visa to then make an inland application?

If the former than this is a very tempting option (Up until now I've been planning and outland application from London).

Thanks!

You can be in Canada as a visitor and apply inland, but once you file you can't leave Canada until your PR comes through. (The reason being if you are denied re-entry, your application is considered abandoned.) You'd wait in Canada as a visitor, renewing your status online. After a few months you should get your work permit through.
