If you applied inland you could have included a work visa application with PR. Takes about 8 months. For outland ( as far as I know ) she would require the employer to apply on her behalf. The work sponsor/employer does the ground work.

Not sure if she can apply for the work visa post PR submission.

Here I go again:

We are in the process of our PR application.  I've been accepted as my wife's sponsor.  The paperwork is now on its way to Manila.

Meanwhile my wife took an extended trip to Canada and has been offered a job as a Supply Teacher.
Is there any contingency that would allow her to work on a part time supply basis?

Basically the answer is no. She requires a work permit to work. The employer would have to go through the LMO process to get her a closed work permit. I'm really not sure the success rate of this for supply teacher or if they are willing to do it, so you would have to ask them.

The only other way is to wait until her application is approved and she lands as a full PR so can get SIN card.

Which is yet another reason we are waiting out the PR in Korea.

Spreadsheet:

The March batch is about 75% complete. Not much change in past few weeks unless it hasn't been updated recently.

What's this?

Not related to PR. Qualifications assessment report. Google IQAS to see full info. and procedure. Some provinces or jobs or further education require this. Takes 2-3 months to process. Figure do it now and have it ready.

B4 Form & Shipping Stuff:

I have not looked at the B4 Form yet. What items have to be included on the form? Everything being shipped out of Korea? How about stuff in luggage? Or is it every single thing both shipped and luggage?

According to CBSA's website;

Before your return to Canada, you should prepare two copies of a list (preferably typewritten) of all the goods you intend to bring into Canada as part of your personal effects. Include the value, make, model and serial numbers, where applicable.

Since jewellery is difficult to describe accurately, it is best to use the wording from your insurance policy or jeweller's appraisal and to include photographs that have been dated and signed by the jeweller or a gemologist. You should describe each item of jewellery on the list of goods you submit. This information makes it easier to identify the jewellery when you return to Canada, and later if you return from a trip abroad with this jewellery.

Divide the list into two sections. In the first section, list the goods you are bringing with you; in the second, list the goods to follow. Goods that arrive later will only qualify for duty- and tax-free importation under your entitlement as a former resident if they are on your original list.

That's what the website says. I think the reality is quite different. My list didn't include the luggage I was carrying. No one at CBSA cared. My list wasn't very detailed. No one at CBSA cared.

Lol. Technically yes, but as I said, the reality is quite different. On my list the moving company just described the contents of each box generally. No single description contained more than 4 words if I recall correctly. So, for example, your shorts and socks can be listed as "Clothing".
