“Canada is committed to making sure young people around the world, especially girls, get the education they deserve. A quality basic education is one of the most important things we can do for children, and the path forward to a more gender equal, peaceful, prosperous world.” ~ Justin Trudeau

Canada is a home to some highly reputable universities and colleges that attract students from all over the world. Canada welcomes thousands of students every year to pursue their dream and all the international students in Canada experience the full benefits of studying in the country such as job opportunities, the possibility of obtaining permanent residence status as well as eventual citizenship.

However, it is observed that married students are able to focus better on their studies while their spouse is with them. So, the main focus of the Canadian government has always been to reunite families.

Hence, the Spousal Work Permit Pilot Program that was about to expire on December 21st, 2017 was extended by the Liberal Government headed by Justin Trudeau until January 31st, 2019. Spousal Work permit Pilot Program allows spouses or common-law partners of work permit holders to work in Canada.
