Program delivery update – November 9, 2015

This section contains policy, procedures and guidance used by IRCC staff. It is posted on the department’s website as a courtesy to stakeholders.

Update to the instructions related to the issuance of work permits


The program delivery instructions have been updated to reflect the changes in the processing and issuance of work permits, due to the enhanced employer compliance regime that was implemented in December 2013 and strengthened in February 2015.

Changes have been made to the instructions on issuing open work permits and spousal work permits to reflect the new fees and associations that must be made to support revocations. The key contacts related to temporary residents and the instructions regarding Labour Market Impact Assessment suspension and subsequent work permit processing suspension have also been updated.
