  2. Hello

    I received my letter of acceptance from a designated school. I applied for a study permit from outside of Canada and along I applied for a work permit for my spouse. I gave everything they asked for. Today I received a correspondence letter indicating that my spouse work permit has been refused on the ground of: "Accompanying dependant of refused principal applicant".
    Should I have applied separately or should I have applied for the study permit first then after obtaining it apply for the work permit?

    Kindly advise
  3. "Accompanying dependant of refused principal applicant" - Did your application get refused? or did you get a visa - form what i can read your spouses in eligibility is due to your application being refused
