There is one question I can't find an answer of, so feel free to slap me in the face if I'm wrong.

I've been thinking for some time to make a move to Canada, BUT...

As a Finnish passport holder it's impossible to get a Canadian working visa without any invitation from a company in advance,. For most EU countries it's possible, but for some unknown reason not for us.

But I'm allowed to be in Canada for 6 months without a visa. (As tourist)
The question is, is it possible to get a working visa in Canada with my boots on the ground?
Have anyone else done it? How can I deal with this?

Chaos, I don't have any direct leads but start digging around for people associated with this http://www.finlandianeighbourhood.com/readhistory.html Thunder bay has finnish loggers that barely speak english and exchange students. They likely have contacts or members who know exactly how a Finn gets into Canada.

Why do the heathen rage and the people imagine a vain thing? Psalm 2:1 KJV
