Hi,
It is very difficult to judge what the current situation is of my wife's sponsorship status, she is in India and I am a Canadian who has sponsored her from Canada, here is what it shows for her status:

Permanent Residence
  1. We received your application for permanent residence on August 28, 2019.
  2. We started processing your application on November 22, 2019.
  3. We sent you medical instructions on October 3, 2019. To avoid delays, please provide us the information requested in the letter as soon as possible. Please consider delays in mail delivery before contacting us.
  4. Medical results have been received.
Medical biometrics and check up was done around October 8th, 2019 and more than likely submitted sometime after. It's been around 8 months since then and the status still shows "In Process", how long in general should it take now?

Thanks in advance!

It takes approximately 12 months normally but likely a bit slower right now due to COVID-19.

Right I thought that after medical results are received usually it takes between 6-7 months after that. I don't really understand the sequence of steps they wrote, that they received the application on August 28th but started to process it on November 22nd, 2019 but sent medical instructions on October 3rd. I was really hoping her application would be completed by March or April of this year. I am hoping now that it can be completed by August or September the latest. The problem is there is no way to check the true status other than looking online, I wish there was.

The medical is in the very early part of the process. Most of the processing happens after that such as the background check, security check, assessment of the application / relationship, etc.

Yes, there is another way to check status. You can order GCMS notes if you want more details on where the application processing stands.
