Best gift for Canada sponsored spouses– This step will be benefiting a lot of Canada sponsored spouses waiting for Canada permanent residency and wanting to work during this time in Canada.
It seems to be the best step for Canada sponsored spouses wanting to work in Canada as they await for getting Canada permanent residency. As per an applicant, its definitely a great relief that one can now work(as a sponsored Canada spouse of a Canadian citizen or Canada permanent resident).
This new step will also enable spouses not just to work in Canada but also to get some additional benefits as well. This includes provincial health care in Canada.
Applicants of common law partner or spouse in Canada applying after December 2014 had to provide an application for Canada permanent residency and Canada open work permit as well to Canada immigration department. Applications submitted before the launch of this Canada pilot project in December 2014 enabled spouses to submit application for Canada open work permit.
It took nearly four months time period for getting the application processed by Canada immigration department CIC(Citizenship and Immigration Canada).
Other requirements—Meanwhile, it needs to be worth notable in this regards that all requirements for Canada open work permit must be fulfilled by all applicants. If its found that any applicant has given any adverse information or detail pertaining to the sponsor or the applicant, then such an applicant will be ineligible for getting Canada open work permit.
And if, in any case, the applicant is found not to be admissible, then in such a scenario, the rejection for Canada open work permit application will be made.
Canada open work permits allow the holder to work in Canada.
