When it comes to a Canadian spousal sponsorship, it’s defined as how a permanent resident (PR) or Canadian citizen can sponsor their spouses to move to Canada permanently.
Being in a new country, creating a new home cannot be the same without family. For this motive, the application for spousal sponsorship is one of the top priorities of the nation. Whether you call it a spouse’s sponsorship visa, spouse work visa, or dependent visa, it’s all the same.
Let’s discuss some effective ways to get your spouses a work visa in Canada.
In Canada, a spouse or common-law partner can work Canada with a work permit. They have to apply for their work permit. There are mainly two options available for applying for a work permit.
- Employer-Specific Work Permit:
An employer-specific work permit allows a person to work according to the conditions mentioned on their work permit. It includes the following:
- The employer name
- The duration of work
- The location of work
The applicant must meet the eligibility criteria for a work permit.
- Open Work Permit:
In the open work permit, the conditions are more flexible. It allows a person to accept any job with any employer. There is no job-specific role, duration, or location defined for them.
While applying for an open work permit, the candidates do not need the following documents.
- Labour Market Impact Assessment (LMIA) from Employment and Social Development Canada.
- Proof of offer of employment through the Employer Portal and paid the employer compliance fee.
- The validity of the permit is similar to the PR holder’s work permit.

The chances of exceeding this duration are high, depending upon the nature of your particular case. In some complicated cases, the visa office can demand additional proof of your relationship, delaying the process.
