Default Which permit is better?

Hi all,

I get married April 2014 to my Canadian spouse, is it better for me to apply for a temporary visitors permit, then travel to canada with him and then apply for a pemanant residency as being 'outside', or can I get the ball rolling now and apply for permanent residency?
I initially thought after getting married I would apply for a temporary visitors permit, once I land in Canada state to immigration that I intend to apply for permanent residency as being 'outside' straight away (hoping they will allow me a years stay) and take things from there.
I will be taking a career break so i always have my job and parents to come back to in the uk if required, but hoping I won't need to do that.
I have read many threads and sites, I thought I had a clear idea but am getting more confused with options.

Do you live together currently in the UK?
If so, have you lived together continuously for 12 months or more?

Hi,

If you're under 30 you could look into the IEC visa which allows you to go to Canada and work for a year. They're normally released towards the end of the year but competition is fierce and there is a quota.

Then you could presumably go out, get married and apply "outland" (i.e you live in Canada but apply via London) for spousal sponsorship.

I wish I was 30yrs. I'll be 35 when we are married.
My career break from work is already approved and I did mention on there that whilst I am in Canada I would not be working (my work prefer that hence it being approved).
