Hi all,

My application was received right at the end of last month (Dec 2018), so its more like a January 2019 submission. Waiting for AOR.....patiently!

Just sent ours off Jan 13th. Hopefully it arrives by post today.
Update: Canada Post tracking says it was delivered and signed for by S. Wong.​
Anybody else get the same signature?

Just wanna say hi for all who sent spouse sponsorship this month
I just sent my application together with OWP today
Crossing fingers! Wish us the best and smooth process! :)
hi there, did you put the OWP on top of the sponsorship application? I am getting ready to put the package together and mail it.

Hi, following the cic here in step 7: https://www.canada.ca/en/immigration-refugees-citizenship/services/application/application-forms-guides/guide-5525-basic-guide-sponsor-your-spouse-partner-child.html

The order of documents should be as follows:
  • checklist;
  • open work permit application (and supporting documents), if applicable;
  • any barcode pages;
  • supporting documents, in the order they’re listed on the checklist.
I use the P.O box address, that's why I wonder too why there was someone signing my application xD

It's normal to be paranoid, it's our future ;)

You know what I just realized that I missed the translation and certified copy for my sponsor's birth certificate and marriage certificate
My marriage certificate is in my native language and english, but it has incomplete English wording by the government (my country of origin)
I provide the English translation but missing the certified copy and original affidavit!
Soooooo, I am worried now :confused:
Guess my application will be sent back, or maybe there will be miracle
Anyone can propose what should I do? Can I add additional documents before the AOR?

Also, hoping that the OWP pilot project will be extended! So I can just resubmit it if it really will be returned
I still have some time because my status is until end of May

I searched some cases in this forum, some got returned documents and some did not (lucky ones) for missing translation
It all depends on the officer who reviews the applications
I hope I'm included in the lucky one
Now is the waiting game

Well I mailed mine in today. Waiting game starts! :)

Did not many people apply in January? Figured there would be lots of us trying to meet the 31st deadline of course unless they extend the owp program.
