Am I eligible to apply for either a Work Permit or a Permanent Residency card, when accommodating my husband who is on the Work Permit?

I’m on the visitor’s visa, residing in Toronto, Canada, accompanying my husband who is on the Work Permit. I would like to work as well. Do I qualify for either a Work Permit or a Permanent Residency at this time?

Assuming your spouse has a closed work permit, you would be eligible for an open work permit yourself, or even a study permit. You can both apply for PR together once one of you is eligible.

 

If you could provide a reason why you chose to come to Canada on a visitor’s visa instead, we could try to give you a more detailed response, covering your options.
