if i provided a police check to come to Canada at the beginning of my work visa and I havent left Canada in the 2 years, will I need to provide a police check from my home country or just Canada to apply for spousal sponsorship inland?

How long does it take to get a police check sent to me?

Thanks as always

From every country youve been living in for more than 6 months, except Canada (IRCC will check it directly with the police) even if youve sent it with your WP you need to send it again
How long? depend on the country. Some days some months.

You must get one from each country or territory where youhave lives for six (6)or kore months in a row since the age of 18. The certificate must be issued no more than three (3) months before you apply.

Thanks! I don’t see anything about how long it will take to get to me but I think it will get to me after my current visa ends. Is there any way around the wait so I can send my application before it’s too late?

Your question is not clear. How long to get the certificate? again its depend. Contact the relevant police and ask.
An no you cant sent your app without police certificate. They will send it back. (unless its a requirement of the country that IRCC will ask for the certificate and then you have to send your app first. check the link youve got for instructions)
