This question is for a neighbor lady (Canadian) who's on a tourist visa,  that went to the IMN office to see about getting a more permanent VISA.  She made her appt. and when she returned the lady said she has to fill out the forms and apply thru an Embassy outside  MX?

She has already bought a place here and would like to make it full time here.

That is the procedure these day. All applications for a residency visa MUST be started and approved at a Mexican consulate in the person's country of citizenship.

That is correct.  All Canadian applications for residency have to be made at a Mexican Embassy in Canada.  Once they start the process in Canada and are approved, they have 180 days to return to Mexico.  Once in Mexico, that have 30 days to see INM to get the documents finalized and the card issued.

There are exceptions........ if you marry a Mexican citizen or even a non Mexican who is already a permanent resident, it can be done here at INM.

Just an additional thought. IF the lady drove a vehicle down with a temporary import permit, then she should drive back to Canada and get the vehicle removed from the Aduana system because if she gets a Temporary Residency visa, the vehicle has to be tied to that visa. If she gets a Permanent Residency visa then she will have to legally nationalize it or buy a Mexican vehicle instead.

I believe they can be started in any country other than Mexico

This is what Leon Lajeunesse of the Canadian  Consulate in Playa del Carmen said  

"Regarding the application for residency – yes they have to apply at a Mexican Embassy OR Mexican Consulate and CANNOT do so while in Mexico.  They can apply in Belize, Canada or US."

I repeat.... there are exceptions.... if you marry a Mexican citizen or even a non Mexican who is already a permanent resident, it can be done here at INM.  So when it is stated "All applications for a residency visa MUST be started and approved at a Mexican consulate in the person's country of citizenship."  It is incorrect!  I know this for a fact because my wife did it here recently without ever going to any Mexican consulate.
