Dear Forum members,

I wanted to apply for a study visa for 6 months study in the University of Calgary. But i was not sure if i can apply for open work permit for my wife.  Can i work after my study visa expiry/course completion?

Thanks
Japs

1. CIC doesn't usually issue study permits for course of 6 months or less.
2. To get a Post Grad work permit, the course must be at least 8 months in length.
3. Your wife would not be entitled to an OWP for a 6 month course.
