Reception was very nice and was sure to answer the questions he could but made sure I was taken care of by a rep at the firm. Shabnam was extremely helpful and I will be calling again when I am ready to proceed.
You may qualify for an Open Work Permit if:
The applicant is already working in Canada and the applicant's permanent resident application has been approved under any one of the following programs:
You may also be eligible if the permanent resident visa of the applicant's family member got approved under the following conditions:
The answer to this question is yes. If you forgot to send the open work permit application along with the permanent resident application then you can send it separately by writing the following statement on the top of the application"Open Work Permit — Live-in Caregiver".
- The applicant must have submitted the permanent resident application under the caregiving class.
- The applicant should held work permit under the program for 2 years or more and
- The applicant must have worked at least 3900 hours or two years as a caregiver within 4 years and not more than that.
The open work permit is not a job specific permit in some cases which means that there is no need to obtain the permission from the Human resources and skill development Canada or labor market opinion and there is no need to mention the job offer.
In order to get eligible for the Canadian open work permit, the applicant must satisfy all the criteria mentioned in the list below.
Our firm has experienced lawyers, consultants and paralegals who can provide you with complete information on the process and can briefly explain the rules and eligibility requirements for each open work permit. We will make sure that you have applied for the open work permit correctly following all the procedures in order.
An open work permit is one that essentially allows the holder to work for any employer of their choice. This type of work permit is typically attached to another application, like an in land spousal sponsorship.
Applicants who submit a spousal sponsorship may qualify for an open work permit provided they meet the basic criteria and have obtained what is known as approval in principle. Approval in principle means that the sponsor has been assessed and found to be eligible to sponsor his spouse or common law partner in Canada.
Not all applications receive approval in principle; however, those who do will receive notification from Citizenship and Immigration Canada to this effect. Those who do indeed receive the notification can use this to apply for an open work permit.
