Is It Possible To Bring Your Family To Canada On A Study Permit? 

What if you are just studying in Canada, not working? Is it still possible for you to bring your family members, spouse and kids, under such circumstances? After all, studies also consume a lot of time ie 3 to 5 years and it can be tough to stay without your family members for that long. Read further to find out whether or not you can bring your loved ones as a student to Canada. 

Bringing Common-law Partners Or Spouse To Canada 

Yes, you would be glad to know that your spouse or common-law partner can be brought to Canada/ can accompany you while you are studying in the country. This apart, spouses or common-law partners are also eligible to work, full or part-time, in any Canadian company. Also, if you eventually manage to acquire a post-graduate work permit after finishing your studies then your spouse or partner can even renew their open work permit till the period your PG work permit lasts. However, for your spouse to get hold of an open work permit you need to be employed in a NOC skill level O, A or B while the decision for the application is made. 

Taking Kids Along While Studying In Canada 

As a parent, if you wish to come to Canada for studies it is also possible to include dependent children on your study permit application. As per Canadian norms, dependent kids happen to be those below the age of 22 or above 22 who have heavily leaned upon their parents for monetary help prior to 22 and are unable to meet their regular expenses due to a mental or physical condition. If your study permit gets the legal nod then the kids also get a visa that lasts as long as your study permit. 

After you enter the country with your kids then the children also become eligible to study in elementary and secondary schools in Canada. If the school happens to be public then you don’t have to spend a single penny for the kids’ education. 

Kids Can Acquire World-class Education 

It is common knowledge that Canadian education is one of the best in the world, so as you get busy with your studies your children will also be benefited from an exceptional educational system. 

As for Canada, school education usually starts with the elementary part before proceeding to the high school segment (known, at times, as secondary school). The school educational system contains twelve grades, hence a pupil begins with Grade One and finishes each year rattling of successive grades. After the conclusion of Grade 12, kids get their high school diploma, making them suitable to study at universities or colleges. 

What If The Study Permit Gets Rejected? 

It is also possible that sometimes study permit application that includes bringing your spouse or kids along could get rejected. The reason for the same could be anything, as after assessing your application if it becomes evident to them that your chief reason to come to Canada is not to study, then the people analysing your application have every right to reject the same. If the situation is making you anxious or sleepless, then you can come to Canada alone initially and bring your kids later on.
