Family members of international students are permitted to travel to Canada to work and/or study thanks to Canada's family-friendly immigration policies. Study permits in Canada are temporary residence permits, which means the bearer must convince the visa officer that they will leave the country when their permit expires. In some situations, if a student wishes to bring their entire family to Canada, the visa officer may infer that the student does not intend to stay in Canada after completing their studies. This may influence the visa officer's decision to grant or deny the study permit.
All study permit applicants are required to submit a statement outlining why they desire to study in Canada. This portion of the application allows the applicant to describe why they want their spouse and/or children to accompany them to Canada. The immigration officer has the last say on whether or not to grant a study permit. Please keep in mind that a person can apply for a study visa without their family members, then submit an amended application later requesting family members' permission to join them in Canada.
A foreign national may include their spouse on their application for a Canadian study permit. If a foreign national and their spouse are authorized for a study permit in Canada, the spouse will be entitled to apply for a spousal open work permit. For the same period as their partner's study permit, this work permit will allow the spouse to work full-time for any employer in Canada. However, if both partners want to study in Canada, they will need to apply for separate study permits.
If you are a Canadian citizen or permanent resident and meet the following criteria, you may be able to sponsor your spouse, conjugal partner, or common-law partner.
A foreign resident may include dependent children in their application for a Canadian study permit. If the overseas individual is granted a study permit in Canada with their dependent kid, the child will be issued a visa allowing them to stay in Canada for the same amount of time as the primary applicant. All minor children have the right to receive an education at the pre-school, primary, or secondary level if one of their parents has a work or study permit in Canada.
A dependent child, according to Immigration, Refugees, and Citizenship Canada, is a person under the age of 22 who does not have a spouse or partner. If a person beyond the age of 22 is unable to financially support oneself due to a mental or physical condition, they may still be deemed a dependent.
In order for the child to be awarded the permanent residency, both the sponsor and the sponsored person must meet eligibility conditions, as with all family sponsorship streams. Parents who want to sponsor their child must do the following:
