We used a lawyer to file our application and he had us submit a criminal record check for Canada. My husband had been living in the Canada for 10 months at the time with a two week trip to visit his home country. He had been here for 5 consecutive months at the time of submission. I don't know what the right answer is but I do know that we were instructed to send the criminal record check for Canada by our legal representative.
If it’s not 6 consecutive months, don’t worry to much. You didn’t mention you submit sponsorship inside Canada or outside and if principal application is in Canada, they don’t do upfront PCC. If they’re outside Canada, ask local Canada Embassy.

I don't know anymore I am getting mixed info a lot. On the phone they told me to send the restoration of status form together with the OWP and PR. But it's two different addresses,edmonton and Ontario. She also gave me the info about the police clearence. Can I send this together with owp and pr ?

I think I found the anwser in the doc checklist. Police certificates, it says "If you have lived in canada for the last six months or canada is the place you lived for the most of your life since age 18, police certificates are not required at this time. "
I think they are asking the police clearence from my country again because its been 6 months and its not valid anymore.
When is the last time you were in your country?
If you left your country and didn’t go back from date issue in police cert, it still valid with them.
If you got it once, then you visitEd your country again, you need another police cert.

You need to do restoration first, after you got back your status from restoration, I suppose it’s extended your stay as visitor. Then you allow to submit your PR / sponsorship. It take quite a lot of time. You could not submit them together as the same time. And in their requirements when you are out of status, they will not accept your sponsorship and return to you again.

1) No
2) https://eservices.cic.gc.ca/fee-wizard/welcome
3) Photo is required for the Pa and accompanying dependents (if any) not the sponsor
4) sponsor needs to submit PR card or proof of citizenship

Read the guide and checklist. All your questions are answered there.
I really appreciate your help. Also in IMM1344 part 2 (Sponsorship agreement) mentioned the sponsor and cosigner before a sponsorship undertaking can be approved, enter into a written agreement with the person to be sponsored.
Does it mean me (principle) and my sponsor should sign any written agreement and hand it in our package?
If yes, could you tell me how to do this?

No offence, but are you an expert? You seem to always drop in statements as facts, but I don't really see anything factual to back up your claims.

If IRCC is advising them to do something, why would you advise them to do the opposite?

@Messa123 Please be aware that I submitted my wife's restoration of status at the exact same time as OWP and PR. I did, however, submit them individually to the appropriate addresses. That was pre-covid however and now they be willing to accept them all together, especially if that is what the IRCC advised.

In cic document guide and checklist. They mentioned all. It's not my opinions, but if your opinion is different. Never mind.
People should read document guide and checklist as well before having your question.
Nobody will address you're right or wrong here, please find your answers by yourself. Here it just give your some idea , so don't make it hard. Your choice still is yours.
Remind again, if you suppose to submit them together in different addresses, leave them a note in your documents that you have already submitted your restoration application, so when people open your package they will know and may keep your package to wait for result of restoration.
The more you care the more you make it better.
when your application is completed, there's no reason they can return or cost your time.
Staffs in iRCC have read/follow their guidelines as well as you do.
I can tell you that people you told on the phone and people open your package are different people.

I agree with the fact that it is up to us to decide. But PLEASE take caution when providing advice! When you have the moniker of "Star Member" associated with your profile people may not know that you are providing your 'opinion' and instead believe it to be fact. If you are to profess something as fact, provide the associated documentation to support it so we all can benefit!

This is the March Inland forum which means we submitted from within Canada. My husband is the applicant and I am the sponsor, a Canadian citizen. I was stating what our lawyer instructed us to do in the event it may help others.
