How to get a TIE and authorization to work (Barcelona)

Hi, I`m a Canadian who is currently residing near Barcelona on a one-year visa through a bilateral agreement between Spain and Canada. This visa allows me to work, but in order to get a TIE (Tarjeta de Identidad de Extranjero) and an authorization to work, I must first get a pre-contract with a company willing to hire me. Unfortunately, no one is willing to hire me without the right paperwork and ID numbers. Has anyone been through this or heard of this process? Any advice would be highly appreciated.
Thanks,

Anne-Marie
