What exactly documents are required for it? In the case of SOWP, there's no employer is define, then what needs to be done?
Required Documents:
1) Passport
2) Work Permit/ Work Permit Approval
3) Visa Stamp
4) Offer letter of University (In case of Open Work Permit)

For spouse you don't have to provide any document in terms of employment, as it is the OPEN Work Permit. In my case I explained them the situation and they just put the generic information in the employer section for my wife. That will work. Note that the protactor is only required in Pakistan and nothing to do in Canada, so put anything in the employer section, that will have no impact whatsoever in Canada.

I have V-1 stamped on my passport but I’m on PGWP. I came to Pakistan for Ramadan and Eid and returning to Canada after Eid InshaAllah.

I want to ask are they going to ask me for protector?

Yes, as its your work permit! They will ask for the protector. They asked me as well if I have the protector, and checked on the passport as well. So don’t neglect this. Get your protector as soon as possible!

I went to protector office today they saw my visa as it was V-1 they said I don't need protector. It is only for W-1 category.
By the way at which airport they asked you?

You need a protector if the official on airport ask about your purpose, I visited pakistan this year in feb , i also had V-1 (on pgwp) but the airline official ask about the status, as they know after student we get work permit, and then ask about the protector. It was the Karachi airport.
