Default Spouse sponsorship from UK

I am a Canadian citizen, living and working in UK and want to sponsor my partner for PR, who can get a LMO and work permit in Canada. Can I start the process in UK or do I have to live and work in Canada to start the sponsorship? Would it be quicker to go over on partner's work permit and start process there? Any ideas? Thanks.

1. As a Canadian citizen residing abroad, you can sponsor your spouse. You have to include with the sponsorship/application an outline of what steps you have taken for work/accommodation/schooling once your spouse is issued a PR visa (COPR).
2. No it wouldn't be quicker, about the same. That is assuming your spouse has already got a LMO.
