On January 30, 2019, the Government of Canada extended the open work permit pilot project for in-Canada spousal and partner sponsorship applications to July 31, 2020.

This work permit pilot project allows spouses and common-law partners to apply for an open work permit, if they are applying or have already applied for permanent residence under the in-Canada spousal and partner sponsorship process.

In addition to being sponsored by a spouse or partner, applicants under the open work permit pilot project must be living in Canada, hold valid temporary resident status (visitor, student or worker) and live at the same address as their sponsor.

At Borders Law Firm, we welcome the extension of the work permit pilot project and the continued benefits that this project will provide to sponsored applicants who work in Canada and their families.
