Good day people....pls I need opinion and suggestions.I applied for SOWP since June 26 2018...there has not been any update until today when I saw medical passed but others are still saying processing. Pls what are the chances of me getting a PPR in this situation.thanks

Congrats once more.
Who knows if London office are the ones handling other online applications. Sha, I heard they take time or delay much in handling applications, but end up with positive replies.
Is it possible for them to still reject after 5-6 months waiting?

Hi guys, I got my police clearance certificate today and I have a question to ask.

How did you submit your police clearance certificate? Did you scan it and attach to your form online, submit it at their office here in Nigeria or did you mail it through courier service to CIC?

For those that took the online root, did you scan and attach all your supporting documents online or was there any specific document you had to send to CIC through courier service or to their office in Nigeria.

Please I urgently need the info so I will know the next step to take.

Thanks.

More details, is it London office? Or paper route, please ask for more details so we know where we are. Because last week Monday, April applicant was updated and we have not heard anything about May applicants. It is well.

London office, online route, didn't receive monthly update mail infact no mail at all unlike me with monthly ''there has been no update on your application since you last checked.'' The husband only decided to check her cic account and saw the approval.
Re: Canada Spouse Open Work Permit (sowp)timeline by waya1: 8:47pm On Nov 28
I also have a friend that applied in June without medicals.
She also got her medical request yesterday.
I think they are really working now to clear up backlogs so as to embrace January with fresh applications.
God will do it for everyone of us

Hubby and I plan was to wait and join him before applying for Express entry(PR). And our estimate was July.. 3 months after submission of the sowp application. The wait was long so we decided to put in the EE application after reading from IRCIC website that one can have dual intent as long as one can prove each of it... EE is going smoothly( 4 months now). We are waiting for EE approval anytime from now by Gods grace. Amen.

In all, it was God that did it, not the documents or our plans and strategy. I give him all the Glory and I pray God answer everyone speedily with notable evidence in Jesus name. Amen.

Thanks for your response..I had checked the website but not too sure of the one. I saw one that reads-Application for work permit Made outside of Canada. I don't know if its the ideal form.

Please I would also like to use this medium to ask another question. I had been refused Visitors Visa and someone adviced my spouse that I should ask for SOWP. Now, the GCMS note that he received reads.' Given the fact that applicant is currently in the EE system, obviously desiring to move to Canada one day, and giving that ones in Canada with her husband (on a SP and with a work contract since May 2018) and her two children, there will be no strong ties to Nigeria, I have concluded that the incentive to remain in Canada may outweigh her ties to her home country.'

Please i'm asking for your expert advice on how to handle the above reason.
A brief background ( I work with an IOC here in Nigeria and also a director in a private company in Abuja with CAC documents, Tax clearance can be provided. Although I never mentioned the company in my Visitors applications) Thanks.
Re: Canada Spouse Open Work Permit (sowp)timeline by wealth360: 2:09pm On Dec 08
