@legalfalcon I am July 2020 CEC Inland Applicant. My current work permit is expiring soon and I want to apply for BOWP.
My wife is currently on open work permit but she has never worked. She was dependent on my PR application but I didn't claim any points for her education/employment.
My question is can I apply for her open work permit with my BOWP? If yes, do I need to provide any additional documents (like my employment letter etc.)?
If not, I have to apply for her status as visitor, can I do that? Will changing her status from Open Work Permit to Visitor Permit will have any impact on my PR application and do I need to inform IRCC of the same?

You can apply for your SOWP along with your BOWP.

You can also file for a visitor's record. However, either SOWP or the visitor's record will depend on your status in Canada.

You claimed 1 year of CEC work experience but the case analyst didn't acknowledge it. Check your documents to support your work experience to see if they are complete (at least a reference letter with job responsibilities and duration, salaries, together with all the pay stubs, should be included).
I did not upload my ROE and pay stubs, is there any possibility that I can submit them right now to save my case?

No wonder. The ROE is the minimum requirement to prove your work experience is authentic. You can send these documents through the IRCC web form, but there is no guarantee whether or when the officer will see and verify them.

What should I do now? Does it mean "refuse"?

Thanks @legalfalcon .
My only query is if I file for my spouse's open work permit, do I need to provide any letter from my company about my NOC skills as that might be difficult for me as company doesn't help much in the bridge permit?
I know I need to provide nothing of such sort for my BOWP but the below link(point C41) confused me for SOWP.

For a SOWP application, you only have to show your status in Canada, your employment proof.

c41 is for the spouses of IEC and PGWP.,

Do you fall in this category?
