How to Apply for Spousal Open Work Permit Video

Posted in Spousal Sponsorship Videos

A spousal open work permit can be obtained if you have submitted an inland application in Canada. Inland sponsorship applications provides the applicant to obtain an open work permit to work in Canada as they await a decision on their matter. For more details, watch our video!

How to Apply for Spousal Open Work Permit

If you have submitted an inland spousal or common-law sponsorship then you are eligible to apply for an Spousal Open Work Permit. The Open Work Permit allows the spouse or common-law partner to work with any employer in Canada meaning it is not job-specific and the employer will not go through a Labour Market Impact Assessment (LMIA). Unfortunately, conjugal sponsorship are not eligible for the Open Work Permit, because the partner lives outside of Canada as these partners cannot get married or be in a common-law relationship due to immigration barriers, sexual orientation or marital status. To be eligible for the Open Work Permit you must be inside of Canada and have submitted an inland sponsorship application.

As long as you qualify under the spousal or common law you can immediately apply for the Spousal Open Work Permit. That means you can include it in your application for spousal or you can submit it to CIC separately under the Open Work Permit. The reason we encourage to apply for Open Work Permit separately, because processing times are faster rather then applying together with your inland application.

If you submit it together with your spousal application you have to wait until you get the Approved in Principle (AIP), once you have that you can apply for the Open Work Permit. Received the Approved in Principle does not mean your application for sponsorship is approved but rather you can apply for open work permit and that stage one is approved.

    Fantastic news, I entered Canada without a hitch. Once the guard at the border saw the package you had prepared for me, he took about ten minutes and handed me my permit. What I relief! I don’t know why I ever tried this without you guys! Thank you!

    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.

    Shabnam, I wanted to personally thank you for all your hard work and dedication to me and my wife. Our new lives together are all thanks to you. Considering the unique circumstances that initially prevented her, I had lost hope. I will make sure that if anyone I know needs immigration help, I will be sending them your way. Again, I can’t thank you enough.
