My spouse is in Canada on a work permit and I hold a dependent visa (visitor). I applied for open work permit in March 2020 and the last update I received on my application was in May, confirming the status of my medical examination.

If I travel to Canada when the travel restrictions are lifted, what will be the process to get my open work permit if my application is approved while I'm in Canada?

It depends how you applied. They may request your passport by mail, but that request will likely come from the visa office where your application was submitted (i.e. outside of Canada). They may also just require you to visit an IRCC office.

I would like to know whether my study visa will get visa get rejected due to gaps in education without employment if so how can I convince the visa officer regarding the gaps in education. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks

I'm sorry to say I think that's a question for a consultant (RCIC) or a lawyer. I think you're going to have to make a convincing case you will return home when your permit expires.
Thanks for answering. I guess I will have to prepare a good statement of purpose explaining what I was doing during the gap and also as you have said convince the visa officer that I will leave Canada once I am done with the Master's program.

It's a pretty bad time to be looking for a job in Canada, due to the pandemic. You should check out both private job boards and the national one (Job Bank).
Sure ! Thanks for the help.

The advantage with CANADA is .... that if you have a job in hand PR is so easy and also that just because you are at a foreign land doesn't mean that hiring you is like hiring an expat.
Is any job that you ( not a person authorised to work in Canada ) get has to be LIMA + than only you get Work permit?
Can you skip the step of getting the Work permit and straight away get PR after you get a JOB?

If the document is produced by the university, they need to send it.
You always get a strange feeling when you are about to leave a place, like you’ll not miss the people you love but you’ll miss the person you are now at this time and this place, because you’ll never be this way ever again
Loving life is a bit easy especially when you are abroad. Where no one knows you and you hold life in your hands all alone, you are more master of yourself than at any other time
My brother has been offered a job letter but I don't know how genuine it is to check for it genuineness.?

John Immanuel
Hello Rajani

Well, it is difficult to say if the offer letter is genuine or not from just looking at the offer letter or an email conversation.
a. Research the Job and the Company. Visit the company's website & if they don't have one or it doesn't fit with how they describe, consider its red flag.
b. Use Google to get Job Details
I would request to visit for further information.
Hi there everyone, my brother has been able to score CRS 460 in the Express Entry Pool, any chances that the remaining draws about 4-5 for the remaining part of the year, could reach to this cut off level
John Immanuel
In all likelihood, 2019 will be another great year in the history of Express Entry system, with higher immigration targets set by Canada this year. CRS cut-off threshold is also likely to come down further this year. The CRS cut-off score had shot up from 450 to 470 during the period between May 1 and May 29. Yeah you can still be optimistic about your chances in 2019.

John Immanuel
For immigration to Canada, you should choose an Educational Credential Assessment (ECA). An ECA is required to apply to certain IRCC programs. World Education Services (WES) is designated by IRCC to provide ECAs for degrees earned outside of Canada.

With a WES ECA you can:
Meet IRCC ECA requirements.
Gain recognition for your education so you can pursue goals in Canada.

Your WES ECA is valid for 5 years.
