Default Study/Work Permit Question?

Hi all

Hope someone can help us out on this one.

Steve wants to take up a diploma course in aviation (similar to his skills here in Ireland) to obtain Canadian equivalency. The course is available on either a full time or part time basis over 1 or 2 years.

Question is this - if he takes up the course on a part time basis, do I get an open work permit or is this only granted if he takes the course on a full time basis?

Part time basis would suit us much better what with the kids etc, but if full time is only option for me to get a work permit this is what we'll have to do.

Any advice?

Here is Citizenship and Immigration Canada's page on work permits that do not require an LMO. (LMO = Labour Market Opinion from Human Resources and Skills Development Canada)

In addressing spouses of foreign students, it states:
To be allowed to work in this category, you must prove that you are the spouse of a student who holds a valid student permit and who is studying full time at a post-secondary institution—a university, a community college, a CEGEP, a technical or school of commercial studies—that is financed by the private or public sector and authorized by provincial law to award university degrees.

Thanks, Judy. That's cleared up that.
