Expansion of the eligibility for family work permits
Starting in January 2023, through a temporary 2-year measure, Canada will expand eligibility to work in Canada to spouses and working-age children through a phased approach for workers at all skill levels.
The temporary measure will be implemented in 3 phases to ensure its successful implementation:
- Phase 1 for family members of workers coming to Canada through the high-wage stream of the TFW Program or the International Mobility Program to apply for an open work permit.
- Phase 2 for the family members of workers from the low-wage stream of the TRP Program.
- Phase 3 is to assess operational feasibility for expanding the measure to family members of agricultural workers.
