Service Description

The Canada Spouse Open Work Permit is a special type of work permit issued to the spouses or common-law partners of temporary foreign workers or international students in Canada. This permit allows them to work in Canada while their partner or spouse holds a valid temporary work or study permit. To be eligible for a Canada Spouse Open Work Permit, you must meet the following criteria: 1. Valid Sponsorship: Your spouse or common-law partner must have legal status in Canada as either a temporary foreign worker or an international student with a valid permit. 2. Inland or Outland Sponsorship: You may be eligible for the open work permit whether your spouse or partner is sponsored as an inland or outland applicant. 3. Application Stage: The open work permit is available at various stages of the spousal sponsorship process, such as while your sponsorship application is being processed, during the initial application submission, or after your sponsorship has been approved. 4. Residence in Canada: You must be physically present in Canada when applying for the open work permit. If you are outside Canada, you may need to apply for a regular work permit through the appropriate immigration channels. Application Process: To apply for a Canada Spouse Open Work Permit, you need to follow these steps: 1. Complete the Application Forms: Fill out the required application forms accurately and provide the necessary supporting documents as specified by Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC). 2.

Additional Information: - The Canada Spouse Open Work Permit is usually valid for the same duration as the spouse or partner's study or work permit. - This work permit does not require a job offer and allows the holder to work anywhere in Canada. - The open work permit also allows the spouse or partner to change employers without requiring a new work permit.
