Hi, good evening.

I have alot of questions and I'm feeling a bit overwhelmed with all the info available on line

I would like to find out if I can apply for a study permit, open work permit for my husband and study permits for my two kids on the same form.

I would like to apply for a 2 year study permit and I'm concerned as to whether I should bring my children with me one time to Canada or maybe I should try and settle in first and then bring them in to study after I am able to adjust.

Would waiting affect consideration of my kids later on?

Can I apply for everyone one time, husband and kids and if we get a favourable response can I bring the kids up a year later. Is that even possible?

Please assist.

Hello,

I can see that you asked questions that part of them can only be answered by you, such as if you want to bring your children right away or wait until you settle. Some think that bringing family help to adjust and settle quickly as emotional support and family presence around. Others, not.
Anyway, you can apply for the whole family if you want as the spouse will be eligible to apply for an open work permit. Children (Minors), mostly they do not need a permit to study:

I do not think delaying applying for family members has any effect as the their coming to Canada to join you as family members is allowed as long as you are yourself eligible to stay in Canada.
