The Immigration Department has extended the pilot program for issuance of an open work permit to the applicants who are in the spouse or common-law partner in Canada (SCLPC) class. The duration of this pilot program has been extended to July 31, 2020.
Under this pilot program, applicants may apply for an open work permit with, or any time after, the submission of their application for permanent residence in the SCLPC class. There are certain conditions that the applicants must meet before an open work permit can be issued to the applicants. One of the most important condition is "Cohabitation of applicants" who have made an application for spousal sponsorship
