no. she must be on your application before assessment. you must sponsor her once you are in Canada, or back up your application by adding her.

You don´t have to backup from your application, you just need to make amendment (change of status). If you get married, then send all of documents to the embassy. Your wife´s forms, medical, police certificate, marriage certificate, etc. Since you are already qualified and your application is based on your skills, it won´t be long.

I hope I answer your question

Take care

Moe is correct. Once you get married you have to make an amendment to your PR application. You would have to do this even if your wife wasn´t planning on accompanying you to Canada - she just wouldn´t have to get police certificates, medical, and all the rest done.

I believe the two of you will have to send a a letter telling them about your change in marital status & that you would like your new wife added to your application, a copy of your marriage certificate, your wife´s PR application, medical, etc. and the proper processing fee to the consulate handling your application. Since you applied under Skilled Worker and are already qualified, it will only make sense for you to be the primary applicant. Since this is the case, I don´t believe that adding her should cause a long delay in your processing.

If the visa office handling your application answers phone inquiries, you may want to consider contacting them and asking exactly what the procedure is for adding a spouse to an existing PR application and what you will need to send in. This way you´ll get them everything the first time instead of them having to contact you to submit missing items, which may cause delays in the processing of the application.

Just to add to what the others have said - DONT get married if your PR visa has been issued! If you get married after PR visa has been stamped on your passport your PR will be CANCELLED and you will have to apply all over again.

You have 2 choices:
1) Get PR visa and land in Canada as PR. Then get married, return to Canada and sponsor your spouse.

2) If you have to get married inform the consulate handling your case that you are getting married(Do not send your passport). As soon as you get married add your spouse to your application. Keep in mind that adding your spouse can delay the issuance of PR visa by up to 6 months.
