    Nope... you will have to do all of that BEFORE you visit. And its not likely they will issue one.

    I am more optimistic as to Canada issuing you a work permit, but you need to get it done while you are OUTSIDE of the country. You're a tourist right now, not a labourer. You need to leave the country, apply for the work permit, then return. It seems like a bit of a run around, but that's life and bureaucracy.

    You will have to apply to immigration for this. The people who want to hire you have to apply as well. So, no, you can't just enter the country and get a work permit.

    Also, if all of this works out for you, do not hand over your passport to your new employer.
