Yes, you can do inland applications but it is reported that outland applications are quicker. A suggestion, why don't you make an application under the skilled worker programme anyway, then you'll be ahead of the game should you decide you want to stay.

With all due respect, IMO one month is far too soon to make up your mind about a new land and lifestyle. There will be many glitches in the first year to say nothing of the homesickness you will undoubtably suffer.

I realise it will be hard but what i mean is things cant possibly be as bad as they are here.My partner hasnt worked since last year and there are absolutley no secure jobs going at all. Ireland is a mess right now with no sign of it getting any better. We're not expecting to just land and everything to be easy for us.All we want is better way of life and hopefully Canada can give us that!:)
