Hi

Currently I'm on open work permit in Canada. Today I got admission in one of the college in edmonton for 2 years course and the course is going to start from may 2010. WIll there be any difficulty getting study permit as currently i'm on open work permit in canada.

Will there be any difficulty in getting my condition change (getting study permit from open work permit)

Regards
Harjinder

Hi,

     From what I have read, you can change your status from worker to student for as long as you can show proof that you can pay your tuition and support yourself.

Hi,

Then by all means you can go ahead and apply for your student permit. All the best.

Were you the principal applicant? Spouses may accompany a person who is approved for a student permit and are given open work permit.

I think your visa is co-terminus with your husband's. But the guidelines say you can change the conditions of your stay from worker to student. So there does not seem any reason why you can't. All the best.

hmmm. but you can already apply for PR next year, can't you? You are working in the IT field (skilled) and two years Canadian experience, so you can apply under CEC.
