Default WHP -----> PR

I have a job, i have an apartment, i have everything a normal tax paying canadian has, and im being fully legit.....

So at what point during being on a WHP can i apply for PR, will i have to wait until i leave and then apply, or can i get the ball rolling by applying while i'm already here??

What's a WHP? A Working Holiday Visa? What is the job, what province are you in, and when does the visa expire?

Chances are you'll need to get a LMO/TWP before you can apply for PR, it would be rare to be able to apply for PR from a WHV.

Because the WHP is designed for people to get a years experience of living in a country, not as an immigration route. You would need to go through the full immigration process, job on the list, get a WP for a job (requires LMO), maybe look at CEC.

Ah see, I don't care if I look daft. Wouldn't want to confuse you all by suddenly appearing intelligent.
