Partners working in Canada
Spouses/partners of UOIT students
Your spouse or common-law partner may be eligible to get a work permit while you are here on a study permit.
Once your spouse or common-law partner has a valid work permit, he or she will need to get a Social Insurance Number in order to work.
New Permanent Residents
If you or your spouse/partner have recently become a Permanent Resident, the following resources may help you gain Canadian work experience.
The Government of Canada has established several programs and resources to assist new immigrants:
- Global Experience Ontario, an access and resource centre for people who are internationally trained.
- A database of employment and training services on the Ministry of Training, Colleges and Universities website.
- Skills for Change, which provides information, assessment and referrals, and settlement counselling.
