Default work permit questions

I have been told that a job offer is imminent by a Canadian company, expected once the immigration details have been sorted and confirmed, I presume this mean the HRSDC approval.

I then will need to apply for a work permit.

The questions I have, I want to apply for residency through the skilled worker program but not until I am in Canada, it takes too long outside, approximately 4 years I'm told.

Should I reveal this when I talk to the immigration officers or would it harm my work permit application. Its a permenant job offer, so it should be obvious to them anyway.

They state on the form that they want assurances that you will leave the country at the end of the permit, I would expect to have to apply for an extension before it ends as by that time I should be still waiting for the residency to complete, how long can I get a permit for?

The work will be in Ontario, not too far from Toronto.

I read another thread on this site, which talks about getting the permit at the port of entry, is that correct, British can do this if the job does not require a medical and I have a job offer and HRSDC file number?

A few questions there would be grateful for any helpful pointers.
