These are the steps to apply for an open work Permit for spouse of international student in Canada.
The student can visit the Immigration, Refugees, and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) website and start an application for a work permit. They can then download the application package and fill out the IMM 5710 form included in it.
Next, international students must gather documents specified in the Document Checklist from the application package. These documents include:
- Digital photos of their spouse
- Copies of their spouse’s passport
- A copy of their study permit
- A copy of their marriage license or certificate
The applicant must then pay their $255 CAD application fee online. They must then print a receipt for this payment and include it with their application before submitting it.
IRCC may contact the applicant if they require any additional information or documents from their spouse. If the application is approved, the applicant’s spouse will receive their open work permit document in the mail.
