Remicynt:
Hi everyone in this great platform. Thanks in advance.

Hello Remicynt,

Though am not an expert but will repond based on the little I know,
1 Yes you need to apply for Visitors Visa, anyone going into Canada will need a TRV to be given access to the county either PR, Student, Visit, Work Permit and other means

2. Getting a job is easy but based on many factors which includes, holding a work permit, having SIN to be used in getting payment on Canada ADP platform, picking up legal Jobs to avoid ban and lots more, so if you will need a job, you won't be given one on a visit visa as visitors are not permitted to work except you wanna work illegally and earn cash by hand which I won't advice at any point to avoid stories that touches the heart.

3. Yes, you can continue your EE application before, during and after your visit visa is approved but it's advisable to state on your application that you've got an EE profile running if you are a post ITA.

4. Depends solely on what type of Job you get, with whom it's gotten and the benefits involved, for instance when you're picking up a professional Job say accountant in a super mat, or any other outlets store, your job roles and pay will include health insurance based on the business policy, same goes to some other professional jobs too like PSW etc. But if it's vice versa, like a store keeper, cleaner, you won't enjoy insurance in some companies as you get paid per hour for ONLY the job with no benefits attached, so the benefits you get depends on what job you picked up and which company.


Finally, it's not about trying a route, it's about getting the full knowledge, information and right counsel about which route to try, anyone can try any route but one has to show to the VO reason you choose the route, benefits to you and them, funds to enable them know you won't be a burden to the Canadian Govt or claim asylum at the end, things to bring you back to your country like business, family etc.

I will only advice you keep to keep track on Student route if you or your spouse can advance in academics or pick up Nigeria master degree to add to your certificate and boost your CSR score or a one year Nigeria certificate course, you can as well join the EE platform for guide on any certificate course in Nigeria that could help boast your score, in all I wish you the best in the journey as others can help add more.

Re: Canada Spouse Open Work Permit (sowp)timeline by dyce101(m): 8:38am On Jan 22

Re: Canada Spouse Open Work Permit (sowp)timeline by nochyks87: 9:50am On Jan 23
Good morning all. Kudos to all those rendering advice on here. Have gone through this thread from page 1 to 100 but I have not come across a template for writing a SOP for SOWP. I would kindly suggest to the experienced people here to construct one even if it has only subheadings to guide prospective applicants and reduce inclusion of unnecessary information.

Thank you.

Schonebaby:


Yes, I did not apply with them. I hope you know that the embassy respects your decision; whether you apply first and secure your visa , go there and invite them, or you apply together
In my case, I got my trv very early, and I decided to apply for then immediately so that, in case the processing took long, I won't feel it that much.
For example, many people applied June last year and got approved December.
However, in my SOP, because I knew I was going to apply immediately, I did not state that I won't go with them. I was careful with my choice of words.
I just stated that I am married and have a daughter and that I am not applying with my family for now.
Be diplomatic. You don't have to state that you're not going with them. Just say you'rr not applying with them for now (which is true). Simple. Your marital status already implies a solid hometie.
Anyway, I don't think they dig up your Sop when they review your family's application. But, just to be safe and true...

Hello Schonebaby,
I trust you are settling well in Canada.
I need clarification. I noticed that your family applied immediately you got your Study Permit. When filling your Family Information form IMM5645, what did you tick for the question that asked if your family would accompany you to Canada? Although you were silent about it in your SOP, this form would actually ask for a yes or no response.

Re: Canada Spouse Open Work Permit (sowp)timeline by emeify1: 3:46pm On Feb 09
What I meant is that refusals sometimes come fast. Delays sometimes means additional reviews which could turn out to higher chances of approvals, though it could also lead to denial. So it matters if yr application is still on background check or eligibility has started too. Clearer?

The wait is more than a month now. This is my first application. And spouse is on PGWP.
Re: Canada Spouse Open Work Permit (sowp)timeline by emeify1: 5:54pm On Feb 10
I guess they are now doing the criminality and eligibility checks. I suspect they try to ensure the applications get near the maximum processing time. 15 weeks currently I think.
