Spouses can Work in Canada with Open Work Permits
Canada announced a new pilot program, which grants Canadian open work permits to eligible common-law partners and spouses of a citizen or permanent resident of Canada under the SCLPC-Spouses or Common-Law Partners in Canada category.

Apparently, applicants who are making an application for permanent residency within the country will be now granted open work permits earlier than getting authorization in principle resolution has been taken on their application.

Sources stated that both the applications for outland and inland for permanent immigration privileges are the loose analogs of the status adjustment and applications for outland are processed via the respective office that work for the applicant’s home place.

Exponents of the new pilot program acclaim that reducing the need for those wishing for immigration benefits to select between the evils: moving as a spouse to join the partner residing in Canada but not allowed to work and the employee realities of being not employed with restricted status or awaiting for final authorization prior to migration to the country, where the applicants will be able to be employed but residing away from their partners or family for longer period.

Nonetheless, the open work permits will permit candidates to work under any employer of Canada for a limited period while their Canadian permanent residency applications are being processed.

The Citizenship and Immigration Canada mentioned that Canada open work permits will be granted to some applicants of SCLPC who have filed their permanent residency application by that time. These applicants will be to apply for the open work permit online and those candidates who file their applications following 22 December 2014 will have to submit the applications for permanent residence and open work permit at the same time.
