Will my spouse or common-law partner get a work permit under International Experience Canada to come with me?
No. If your spouse or common-law partner wants to work in Canada, they have two options:
- Submit a profile to the International Experience Canada (IEC) program. They will have to meet the requirements and follow the application steps if they are invited to apply for a work permit.
- Apply for a work permit outside the IEC program. For more information, see Can my spouse or common-law partner work in Canada?
For both options, your spouse’s or common-law partner’s work permit application will be assessed separately from yours.
If your spouse or common-law partner is not eligible for a work permit, they may be able to come to Canada as a visitor.
