Work permit for spouses or common –law partners of foreign students.
Your spouse or common-law partner may apply for work permit if:
- you have a valid study permit
- you are full time student
- you are enrolled in designated learning institution
Work permits for your spouse or common-law partner are valid for the same period of time as your study permit.
Accompanying spouses or common-law partners of foreign students are eligible for an open work permit, which means they do not need a job offer or a labour market opinion from Service Canada.
