Default Spousal Work Permit

Hi folks,

The CIC website states that, as long as as couple of conditions are met (which they are), my spouse "may apply for a work permit which is “open� and will allow them to accept any job depending on whether or not a medical exam was taken."

Can anyone advise me please how I should apply for this "open" work permit? What form(s) do I need to fill in? Where should I submit the completed form (London, since we are from the UK or Canada, since we are here)? What fees apply and how long does it take to process?

Many thanks,
Ed,

Thank you Mr. Humphries. I did look on the CIC site but obviously missed it. I'll dig around again!

Mr Humphries and Ed and Karen, I have looked for such information on the CIC web site without success. Can you please be more specific as to which section an 'open work permit' for spousal applications is in. I am waiting in Canada for my PR (family class - common law partner) and I only have visitor status, I would absolutely love to be working on an open work permit for the duration of this time consuming process.

Regards,
Ozinca

Try the "Applicationos and Forms" button at the top of the English opening page.

You are not eligible for an open work permit until your receive your A.I.P. (Approval in Principal).

Thank you PMM, I was about to get really angry with myself if I had been able to work all this time. You have cleared this one up.

Is it IMM1249 'Application to change conditions, extend my stay or remain in Canada'?

http://www.cic.gc.ca/english/applica...html#wp1024643

The section on Spousal Work Permits (http://www.cic.gc.ca/english/work/worker-4.html ) doesn't mention the forms at all. The guide for the above form mentions that spouses may apply for a work permit from within Canada (page 7). Unfortunately, the bit that says 'refer to our website for more information' just goes back to the bit on spousal work permits - which doesn't give much information!
