Spousal work permit applications
Those foreign students who are married and whose study permit is still valid may be eligible to bring their spouse to Canada through the spousal open work permit program.
International students can apply for a spousal work permit while they are applying for their study permit.
Those students who have completed their education and are on a work permit must have a job in a NOC level 0, A or B to apply for a work permit for their spouses.
If the foreign graduate doesn’t work yet or works in the job in a NOC level C or D, the application for a spousal work permit may be refused.
