Spousal Open Work Permit
If you are a spouse of someone working or studying temporarily in Canada, you may be eligible for an Spousal open work permit if you’re:
- a spouse of a skilled worker in an occupation under the National Occupational Classification (NOC) skill type 0, A or B approved to work in Canada six months or longer
- a spouse of someone applying for the Atlantic Immigration Pilot Program in a job under NOC 0, A, B or C
- a spouse of a foreign student at a public post-secondary school, such as a college or university or (CEGEP) in Quebec
If your spouse has an open work permit (e.g. post-graduation work permit), you must attach a copy of your spouse’s work permit to your application for an open work permit, along with:
- a letter from your spouse’s current employer that confirms they work there in a NOC 0, A or B occupation, or a copy of your spouse’s employment offer or contract, and
- a copy of your spouse’s recent pay slips
Note: Your work permit may valid no longer than your spouse’s study or work permit.
