Applying ‘on the ground’ - meaning in person always makes more sense than applying remotely.

However, India and Canada aren’t exactly close.

So the best answer is always ‘do everything at once’.

Why?

Well:

  • Applying for the visa in terms of man hours shouldn’t take more than 8 hours
  • Applying for jobs once your resume and cover letter(s) is/are ready shouldn’t take more than 1-2 hours per application (or less)

So…

Why not commit 24 man hours to it - which could be applying for the visa as well as 16 jobs.

And then reassess. Seems to be a much more ‘informed’ place to come from - and then you’ll have the most definitive answer to your own question!
