Default PLEEEESE HELP!!!Manitoba PNP Query

I have been poking around the site with interest for some time,but thought I would be brave and post a thread cause I am all confused.My husband has been approved as a provincial nominee and will be working for Big Freight Systems Inc in Steinbach,Manitoba.We were under the impression that we could go to Canada on my husbands work permit(with study permits for the kiddiwinks)and apply for residency shortly after we arrive.We visited the Canadian Embassy in London yesterday and were told that we must apply for PR before we go,but we can go to Canada while it is being processed.My husband has applied for his work permit and we are not sure what to do cause the recruitment manager at Big Freight has told my husband that he can apply for PR when he is in Canada(or maybe he has misunderstood).Our budget is limited as most of our funds are in our property and we(probably stupidly) haven't taken this into account.Could anyone advise whether we could apply for PR after we are in Canada or will we be in trouble if we dont do it before we go.

We would love to know if there are other people out there who are moving to Steinbach from the UK.

You likely asked wrong questions and confused answers you heard. The proper answer should be - you cannot apply for PR visa in Canada, you must submit it to proper visa post outside Canada. But you may be at that time in Canada.
