Hello,

My common law partner and I are nearly ready to send our application for inland spousal sponsorship, but I the open work permit pilot is only until July 31, 2020. Does this mean if our application arrives after July 31, the open work permit application won't be valid? If it arrives before, would that be okay?

Thank you for your help!

I'm in the same situation too. I'm applying for PR + OWP for my spouse and will be sending the application via post in next 2 days. I'm hoping that if the application reaches them before july 31, they would still consider the application.

Can anybody confirm this ?.

? I am not following... yes, it has been updated, but how is that relevant to cicnews? Have you read cicnews ? They have explained some https://www.cicnews.com/2020/07/spousal-open-work-permit-pilot-to-become-permanent-0715171.html#gs.c1udbo
Let begin, if you look for official announcement, you saw my link , title “Open work permit pilot program for permanent residence applicants in the spouse or common-law partner in Canada class (LMIA exemption code A70)”
Then, they mention that “Under this pilot program, applicants may apply for an open work permit with, or any time after, the submission of their application for permanent residence in the SCLPC class.”

On the tap Menu “Special Initiatives Pilot Project

Now understand?
