Thank you. But doesn't the immigration website mention that they'll accept attested documents only. Since I'll be submitting my case in paper, then can you tell me where should I get my educational documents attested from? I did my o levels from edexcel board, a levels from cambridge board, bachelors from Pakistan...

My wife Student Visa got approved recently, I applied for SOWP on 14 Feb and today 19 Feb i received correspondence letter stating my Student Visa has been refused . I am confused i applied for Open work permit not student Visa , Is it a mistake from CIC what should i do , i have submitted Webform and have also emailed New Delhi Embassy to review my application.
Below is the letter i received.

“Thank you for your interest in studying in Canada. After a careful review of your study permit application and supporting documentation, I have determined that your application does not meet the requirements of the Immigration and Refugee Protection Act and Regulations. I am refusing your application”

Hello, my spouse's SOWP application changed Background check status from 'we are reviewing' to 'Not applicable'. Can somebody decipher what that means? The application has been submitted on Sep 13, 2018, and been delayed.
