hi WED to be honest with you I got information from that CIC site so please take advise from Agent before you make an application.
I too saw the CIC site and it says about C41 to C45 categories but doesn't specify that we need to put C41 in "intend to work" column.

Further, as per IMM 5488, it clearly mentions that if Open Work Permit, leave 2 to 6 fields blank.

Hi there, thanks for the answer. I live in Canada and my wife is in India.So what about the employment letter in that case because she is the only applicant and I have already uploaded my employment letter in her SOWP file.
Yes, you need to keep your employment letter.

there is an application form 1295(Application for work permit made outside of Canada)
In that form, U can find one box called (Details of Intended to work in Canada) U can mention that spouse open work permit(C41/C42)
U can check that link again which category you are eligible for( C41 OR C42 OR another program )
but make sure ask your agent or lawyer before you made your application.
As per my research better to mention category code to understand your case when the visa officer checks your Application.
Did you get answer for rejection reason?

I am having the same situation. I got refusal with same reason and everything is fine in my application. i have also asked for reason.
