I hold work permit and plan to travel this week. I got all the confirmations that I am travelling for essential services and I am good to travel I just wanted to confirm that my dependents don't need anything else, as they are also travelling with me.

Who are your dependents? Spouse? Children? If a spouse or common law partner, do they hold a TRV or an OWP? If an OWP, do they already have a job secured in Canada?

Hard to say in that case.

You can definitely travel. Not possible to give a concrete answer for the rest of your family. Your travel is clearly essential. Not so clear for the rest of your family.

We've seen some people here successfully board. We have seen others refused and their travel deemed non-essential (this would apply to your wife and potentially your children). Generally speaking, those holding OWPs are allowed to board if they have a job in Canada. With just an OWP (but no job in Canada), it's a dice roll and CBSA is sometimes saying there is no reason for this person to be traveling to Canada right now.

There is a permision letter you can request from IRCC. However it's taking a long time for people to get responses and we have seen IRCC refuse to issue the permission letter in cases such as yours.

So short answer is that it's unfortunately hard to say what will happen.

I am WP (closed) holder and a returning employee. IRCC confirmed I can travel but don't have any permission or approval letter, can I travel?

Hi Ashutosh, did you travel successfully? did you share explicit letter from your organization for travel? is it mandatory?
