I am currently on a one-year post-graduate work permit; it expires in August 2018.

My partner is Canadian; I am American. We are trying to submit our spousal sponsorship application by April 2018.

Can I apply for an open work permit along with my spousal sponsorship application? Similarly, can I continue working while I am waiting for both applications to process? I am currently on a .428 continuing contract with a Canadian high school and would like to continue working there while my applications are being processed.

You may want to contact the Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada Call Centre directly for some information.

Client Support Centre agents are available Monday to Friday, 8 a.m. to 4 p.m., your local time, except for statutory holidays.
