|If you are working in HK., you make Money there. No WkPmt, No Job here.
You might get a Tourist Visa. If they come to know that your spouse is here in Canada Studying, the results could be different.
If you are a Permanent Resident of HK., Keep on working there and while working, get sponsored by your spouse. The time taken could be extensive. Longer than a year. You will also need a Police Clearance from HK. Also, Proof of residence and your Permanent Status there.
After you get sponsored and arriving here in Canada, please apply for an Open Work Permit. It is getting into Canada as a spouse that counts. Time taken 18 months in Both the cases. But if you are employed and working in HK., then you are making money there.
Hope this helps.

I girlfriend is studying in Canada Vancouver. And we are getting married in Jan 2019. I would like to ask regarding the process of applying for a work permit.
1. Should I travel on a tourist visa and then apply when in Vancouver for my work permit? If yes how much time does this process takes from the time I apply until the time I receive the permit?
2. Another option is I apply from outside Canada. Currently, i am studying in HK and might get a job here only. So can I apply from HK only or do I have to apply from India?
If anyone can help it will be nice.
