Default Common Law Question

I am from the UK and am about to apply for residency via my Canadian common law partner.
I have been told I can go through two routes, one via Canadian immigration, which means I can't leave the country until this is resolved. Or, via Britain, which I don't know much about, but apparently can be much quicker. Can I do this while living in Canada?

Both are via Canadian Immigration, one is applying in country, the other out of country. If you apply in country you can 100% leave the country while the application is processing, if you apply out of country, you have to leave the country and re-enter to activate your residence. Regardless, unless you have status that allows otherwise, you cannot work while you are in Cabada waiting for your application to process... Out of country takes about 9 months, or did a year or so ago when a relative applied.
