I always had this feeling that paper application was faster than online because no embassy will like to hold your passport for more than 3 months.
I actually did paper application for my study permit and it was approved within 2 months. I've applied for my wife and she insisted it be done via online and since June till now we're yet to hear from CIC. I am really pissed with CIC.

Congrats to Adagody!

Re: Canada Spouse Open Work Permit (sowp)timeline by nam16: 6:27pm On Dec 12, 2016
Absolutely. Cos the office (Accra)that process online application attend to several types of visa application compare to paper (Lagos)...if you apply via paper and you need your passport, you can always withdraw your passport while application still in process.
