Temporary Work - US Citizen & Moroccan Spouse


New Member
I'm considering taking a temporary full time assignment in Canada. I am a US Citizen and my spouse is a Moroccan Citizen. If I were to take the position, would my spouse be able to follow me over to Canada and if so, what kind of timeline are we looking at for him joining me. TIA.

So whether you are coming here on a regular work permit or a NAFTA work permit, your spouse can apply for an open work permit to accompany you. Processing time is about 4 weeks, I believe.
