Yes bro its very clearly mentioned on the form IMM5475E
, let me write down here exact words written on the said form:http://www.cic.gc.ca/english/pdf/kits/forms/IMM5475E.pdfIf your spouse or common law partner wishes to release personal information to the same designated individual ,he or should sign in the space provided.Your dependent children who are 18 years or older must complete their own copy of this form
I never have any problem to get notes in the same way .
Hope this will work .
Brother Kanamen I respect you for what you say and there is a possibility you may be getting CAIPS for people but I am quoting the link from CIC website and also an email received from ATIP in this regard and also the first page of IMM5563 E where they advised that consent of every person over the age of 18 is required who is included in application. So in my opinion principal applicant and spouse should fill their own consent forms. Please check. Thanks1) http://www.cic.gc.ca/english/department/atip/requests-atip.asp
Request for personal information about someone else
Requests for personal information not belonging to the requester must include signed, recent (less than one year old), written consent from the individual to whom the personal information belongs.
To facilitate processing requests for personal information, we also recommend that the consent of all individuals who may have personal information included in the records be obtained and provided with the request. For example, in the case of immigration records – consent should be obtained from the spouse, sponsor, adult children or any other person appearing in the records
. Consent may be provided by completing the Authority to Release Personal Information to a Designated Individual Form (IMM 5475) or by way of a written statement indicating the name of the person giving the consent and to whom consent is being given.2) Email received
As a response to your inquiry, please note that if you wish to receive information for both you and your wife, it is recommended that you both sign consent forms
showing that consent has been given to the individual you have appointed as you designated representative.

I want to order GCMS notes through my friend who is living in Canada. My wife is also included in application but I am principal applicant. Do I need to send two consent IMM5475 (one from me and other from wife) or one consent form is enough from me and my wife will just sign my consent form.
Thanks3) Also on the first page of IMM5563 E it states
NOTE. Please include the consent of every person whose information may be in the file. The consent of minor children is generally not required.
