The pilot project for working-age dependents of temporary foreign workers destined to work in British Columbia has expired on February 14, 2014. The pilot project allowed for the issuance of open work permits to working-age dependents (between 18–22) of most skilled temporary workers employed in B.C.
The pilot project was originally launched on August 15, 2011, under article 7.1 of the Temporary Foreign Worker Annex to the Canada-British Columbia Immigration Agreement. At this time there is no sign that this pilot project will be extended again. A similar pilot project continues to remain in effect in Ontario until July 31, 2014.
