I applied from Canada on July 29. I received approval of my OWP today. I am a spouse of an international student.

My timeline:
Applied on: July 29
Approved: October 2

I did not need a medical and I don't know how long it took them to start reviewing my eligibility. I am glad that it's finally approved.

New post: this is my situation. I have a PGWP that expires in 2021 and last year I applied for a SOWP for my husband and got it but they only gave it to him until November 30, 2018 because my employment letter said I was on a one year contract. My contract will be extended for another year but I won’t have proof of that soon (HR will take about 2-3 weeks to process my new appointment, so end of October). The online processing times for Work Permits is 60 days which means my husband would most likely fall on implied status but we want to avoid that because we have a trip outside of Canada on December 21. Do you recommend flagpoling when I get my contract extension?? (we are from a a visa-excempt country) I also need to provide 3 paystubs, is it OK if these are from before the new contract begins? (Otherwise he would loose status if we had to wait for 3 paystubs after the new contract begins). I could get a letter from my employer right away saying that they are processing my
