I'm not sure why you are posting this in someone else's thread but the police officer who laughed at you is pretty much right in doing so. If you are going to just come here without the proper permits to work, then I don't see why you should even expect to have a job or work for someone.

You are working illegally in Canada, so it's hard to understand what faith you're losing.

If a person asks you to leave their premises, you are required to do so or face the possibility of being charged with trespassing.

If you feel you've been cheated by your "employer", you are free to launch a civil court action where you could tell a judge you've been working illegally and have been cheated out of wages.

Here in the states, whether or not you are working legally or illegally the employer, by law, has to pay you for all hours worked. However, by reporting this to the authorities you have a high probability of being deported after you've received your pay. Whether or not this is done the same way in Canada I'm not sure, but my best advice to you is to count your losses and move on.
