Subject: spousal program
  i am working here in canada as a caregiver, which is under skilled worker area. my marital status was not updated as i submitted my application while i was single, and took them (immigration) 2 years to issue me visa. while waiting for my visa, i got married. i know that i have to update my status if i renew my working permit. my question is, if ever i have updated it, can my husband avail this spousal program, to work here in canada without HRSDC confirmation?

thank you.

YOU R IN HUGE TROUBLE YOUR 117 (9) (D)
117. (1) A foreign national is a member of the family class if, with respect to a sponsor, the foreign national is

(9) A foreign national shall not be considered a member of the family class by virtue of their relationship to a sponsor if

d) subject to subsection (10), the sponsor previously made an application for permanent residence and became a permanent resident and, at the time of that application, the foreign national was a non-accompanying family member of the sponsor and was not examined.

You are fine (in reply to: spousal program)
No shemfan is not in huge trouble.

Part 117-9-D states (with my emphasis)

d) subject to subsection (10), the sponsor previously made an application for permanent residence and became a permanent resident and, AT THE TIME OF THAT APPLICATION, the foreign national was a non-accompanying family member of the sponsor and was not examined.

When she applied for permanent residency, they were not married and not family members. If she did not list him as a "non-accompanying" family member on her residency application, then it is OK. If they were not married or legally family members at the time of her application (when she submitted it), then she is eligible to sponsor on a spousal visa.

Correction (in reply to: spousal program)
I looked at some other posts here and it seems my last post is wrong:

If you swore the oath for your permanent residency application and your application stated that you were single, and you were married at the time you swore the oath then you DO have a problem, and you may be barred from sponsoring your husband. You may need to see a lawyer to help you solve this.

thanks for the reply...BUT... (in reply to: spousal program)
lets make it clear.

i work as a caregiver. meaning under temporary resident visa. im not a PR yet. im sorry to confuse u guys here. im aware that a PR cant sponsor anyone not listed in the principal´s application.

I will renew my permit/contract this coming April. I heard that i should update my marital status then. What is the best idea for this? should i attach the marriage contract as i change my status, or should i attach a letter explaining the misrepresntation too?

I appreciate your kind help here. and this site is really sensible.

thank u very much. i´ll wait...please

I search from the internet that after six months of staying as caregiver is it possible my husband could apply as skilled worker if he is qualified for the categories as a skilled worker.If he do so,is it possible to bring with him our children.
