Spousal work permit applications
Those foreign students who are married and whose study permit is still valid may be eligible to bring their spouse to Canada through the spousal open work permit program. International students can apply for a spousal work permit while they are applying for their study permit. Those students who have completed their education and are on a work permit must have a job in a NOC level 0, A or B to apply for a work permit for their spouses. If the foreign graduate doesn’t work yet or works in the job in a NOC level C or D, the application for a spousal work permit may be refused.

Richmond councillor lobbies against birth tourism
Richmond councillor Carol Day thinks Canada should stop handing out citizenship “like bus passes” to babies birthed by tourists. Day is encouraging people to write to the new federal Minister of Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship, Marco Mendicino to crack down on the practice. Day said that people who arrive via the immigration system spend years trying to get their Canadian citizenship. The city cannot regulate “birth tourism houses” per se, rather they can just regulate short-term rentals, and these are only illegal if they contravene STR bylaws or health and safety bylaws, explained city spokesperson Clay Adams.
