Not unless you can prove your relationship is genuine. Also, you need to provide a solid reason why you got married after the visa of your spouse.
We were in love for the past 3.7 years and finally our family also agreed our relationship, but since my spouse had a elder sister we were waiting for her marriage to take place first due to our culture. So we decided to get our marriage legaly registered but without any functions or ceremony. We did it in the presence of our guardians as they are the witnes signees.

Hi guys, so my story is
- I've got my PGWP (3year, 2019-2022), got a nocB job and 6 recent payslips, but have not applied for visa visitor.
- My wife's open work permit has expired on July 31st and she's already applied for Temporary Visitor record (implied status with submission confirmation).

My question is " Can both of us go flagpole at the border to get SOWP" ?

-Some said we had to have a valid visa to re-enter Canada otherwise we'd be in No man's land situation while get refusal paper from US but can't enter into Canada again.

-But some others say that we only need to bring Valid passport, workpermit (of husband), and Submission confirmation (visitor record application of wife). Because "flagpole" is not entering US, just to get a refusal letter, so technically We're still in Canada's land. So we don't need to prove any paper but the WP, valid passport.

A foreign national is exempt from the requirement to obtain a temporary resident visa if.... ( please read 190 3(f) https://laws-lois.justice.gc.ca/eng/regulations/sor-2002-227/section-190.html )

I need an advice. My wife has a job offer but doesn't have a OWP to do so. I want to make it asap, otherwise we have to wait extra 6 months. We need to work to pay a bill.

Thank you for your time, guys.
