Canada, as a PR

In a groundbreaking move by Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC), a new wave of opportunities has been unveiled for spouses and common-law partners of study permit holders. As of March 19, 2024, a significant policy revision under the International Mobility Program (IMP) [R205(c)(ii) – C42] is set to reshape the landscape for international families in Canada.

Exclusive Work Permit Privileges!

In a bid to boost the allure of Canadian academic institutions and bolster the nation’s economy, the IRCC has designated specific spouses and common-law partners of full-time students as key contributors to Canadian interest. This includes those married or in a common-law relationship with full-time students enrolled in graduate programs (master’s and doctorate) or professional degree programs at universities and polytechnics.

Who’s Eligible?

Dive into the exclusivity! Only spouses or common-law partners of eligible study permit holders can apply for this golden ticket – an open work permit. Children? They’ll have to wait on the sidelines as this perk is not extended to them.

What You Need to Know

  • Eligibility is tightly knit around genuine relationships with full-time students in specified higher education programs.
  • Applications lodged before and after March 19, 2024, have distinct criteria, ensuring a fair and thorough review process.
  • The work permit aligns with the study permit’s validity or the passport expiry date, whichever is sooner, embedding a sense of urgency and excitement for applicants.

A Step Forward in Policy and Practice

This update isn’t just a policy change; it’s a strategic move to enhance Canada’s competitive edge on the global academic and economic stage. By allowing spouses to work, Canada is not just opening its doors but is actively inviting families to grow, contribute, and thrive within its borders.

Act Now!

For those eligible and eager to embark on this new journey, the time is now. Dive into the details, gather your documents, and step into a realm of new possibilities in Canada. Remember, the clock is ticking from March 19, 2024 – a date that could mark the beginning of your Canadian dream!
