My apologies, I don't know how I confused Ontario and BC.

1) Sorry, I don't really know the details. But I believe you would just mail it with reference to your application number or UCI. You can always call CIC to ask. The temporary certificate should have as much weight as the real one, I think.

2) No, I wasn't. She can't apply for an open work permit if you are doing it outland. If you are doing inland, she will need a visitor visa to travel to Canada, even with the work permit. I have no idea why people would be saying that. Maybe they are wrong; maybe they are breaking the law; maybe the spouse visits on a multiple-entry visa, leaves, comes back, laves, comes back, etc. I really don't know.

Im a little confused as to why she would need a visitor visa once she is approved for the open work permit. Right now she is here on her multiple entry tourist visa. I thought that once she submitted the sponsorship application and was approved for the open work permit, that her status here would chnGe. Sorry if I am not understanding properly.

I also wanted to ask about getting a consultation with a lawyer. What does that entail? Will they be able to provide me with some legal expert advice regardijg some of these questions? Is it a time capped consultation or? Thanks again.

Again, my apologies. I forgot about that visa.
If she has the multiple entry work visa and it's still valid, she doesn't need a new visa.
To clarify, a work permit is permission to work in Canada. A visa is permission to travel to Canada. A work permit does not, in and of itself, contain a visa.

If you're looking for a consultation with us, it would be with a Registered Immigration Consultant (RIC), not a lawyer, as we don't employ any lawyers. (To learn more about RICs, read this http://www.immigroup.com/immigration-consultants-what-we-do or see https://www.iccrc-crcic.ca/home.cfm.) Our consultations are CAD$84.75 and usually last between 20 minutes to a half hour. They will be able to help you decide whether to pursue inland or outland, for example.

Okay thanks. I think I'd like to book a consultation just to verify a few things. You've been a great help. How can I book one of these? Is there a page that tells me what I need to prepare? Should I bring the application or just a general overview of our situation with questions ready? Thank you

Hi again,
Are you in Toronto? If you're in the GTA, you can come in, in person. If not, we can do it over the phone.
You can book it a few ways:
  • email us at info@immigroup.com and ask for a spousal sponsorship consultation
  • call us at 1-866-760-2623 and ask to book a sponsorship consultation with Anthony or Cassandra
  • or you can tell me some preferred dates and times and I can check with the consultants to see what's available.
For a consultation, they will not review your application, they will just answer your questions.

Hi Mike,
Were you able to book a consultation? Do you need any more assistance?
