Spouses of Canadians to get permanent residency immediately: McCallum
Currently, sponsored spouses of Canadians receive conditional permanent residency upon arrival in Canada and have to wait for two years to obtain permanent-resident status. Immigration Minister John McCallum says that's about to change.
Immigration Minister John McCallum told The Hill Times that under the amended Immigration rules, sponsored spouses won’t have to wait for two years to receive permanent resident status. GTA Liberal MPs Chen and Anandasangaree want McCallum to find a way forward for undocumented residents in Canada.
