benefit from Canada's immigration laws:
Partners can often accompany a foreign
student or foreign worker to Canada for the duration of
the student or worker's stay and obtain ‘Open’
Work Permits for the duration of the stay;
Canadian citizens and permanent residents
can often sponsor their partner to become a permanent resident
of Canada, they cannot be refused due to low income;
Partners living in Canada with a Canadian
citizen or permanent resident can often become Canadian
permanent residents without leaving Canada; and
Skilled workers and others immigrating
to Canada as permanent residents may obtain immigrant visas
for their partners.
