1. You need to provide it or provide a letter of explanation saying why you don't have it.

2. You can ask, you may not get.

3. If you put purpose of visit as awaiting the marriage certificate, technically you're saying you'll leave when you get the certificate. Is that what you want the visa officer to think?

So what should as say as purpose of visit because the space isnt enough to write waiting for marriage certificate to apply for spousal sponsorship

"Apply for spousal sponsorship." Provide proof of payment of the sponsorship fees.
Hello want to ask some qn form 5532 part c, 11
Where they ask if there is more information you would wish to share to support your relationship, is one supposed to write like how we met and how the relationship grew until todate, and the space isnt enough does irrc provide extra sheet for more space or i just type and print my own

Yes, that is the kind of information you can provide.

As the guide says, you type and provide your own sheets. IRCC does not provide any.

Yes, you should assume the application will be returned as incomplete even if you submit a webform. This is the standard process if the application is submitted without a marriage certificate.

Ultimately it's really your choice. I would personally wait but that's just my opinion. Even pre-COVID, people had to wait for their marriage certificates to be processed before submitting their applications and this sometimes delayed application submission by months.

The IRCC help desk unfortunately gives out wrong / uninformed answers regularly so anything they say cannot be relied on. It may work - however you are also risking having your application returned and we've seen lots of applications returned on this forum as incomplete for this reason. Again, ultimately up to you.
