WP refusal could not be based on preganancy. However, if your wife needs extensive health care for her other medical needs, the officer could make a decision to delay her travel with you together.

I highly doubt that they will deny your wife entry. When do you plan to go to Canada, ie how far along will she be when you make your entry? The only concern you would probably have is the cost of giving birth. Not sure what province you're going to be staying in, but they usually require at least 3 months of residency before you're covered for healthcare.

I just looked up health coverage in SK and it looks like it also starts 3 months after you come there. See: http://www.health.gov.sk.ca/moving-to-saskatchewan

So you'd have to pay for doctor appointments (I think they're around $60-90) until you get covered at around April, and she would be around 7 months by then. Just enough time for her to be covered by the province health coverage when she gives birth.
