Spouse/Common-law partner’s Open Work 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.

Eligibility to apply:

Your spouse or common-law partner may apply for a work permit if:
  • you are a full-time student;
  • you have a valid study permit.
**Work permits for your spouse or common-law partner are valid for the same period of time as your study permit. **
