If I may ask what is the validity for your visa and passport?
My application got rejected because my husband's visa and passport validity was less than 6 months.
My passport is valid until August 2026 and my husband ‘s until September 2024

I would love if the original poster could follow up. My husband just got a refusal letter 01/17/19 for his WP application which expired 12/05/18. We applied as a family of 5 11/29/18. His was refused today. No word yet on the other four. We live in Canada.We have an active PR paper based application on file.

I have applied on 4th January 2019, offline for Sowp. Got rejection today with the following reasons "You have not adequately demonstrated that you meet the requirement of a work permit pursuant to section 205(c)(ii) of the regulation.

please suggest how to proceed further.

Greetings all.
I am currently on my PhD (commenced Sept. 2018) in Canada. I applied for SOWP on behalf of my husband on January 24, 2019 but today I got a rejection. Here is the reason:

You did not provide a valid Labour Market Impact Assessment from the Department of Economic and Social Development Canada and/or demonstrated that you are entitled to apply for an open work permit.

Please what does this mean? Note that LMIA is not required for our application. I feel really bad; we included every [possible document. Please kindly advise. Thank you

An observation, I may be wrong though;

Is it only male spouses that are denied SOWP. Someone earlier told me that it is easy for males to obtain SOWP for their spouses, but difficult for women to do same.

Please the applicant who applied for CAIPs should kindly update up. Thank you.

Hey VishvaRana, Did you get the notes. Its been 2 months and they havent given me the notes yet.
I have applied for the notes once (after I got study permit refusal), it took a while, about two months. In fact, I could not wait for it any longer so I made a second attempt for study permit (which was successful). I got the caips notes while my second attempt was being processed. You will receive it for sure, be patient.
