Congrat Ottawa_Can. I´m happy for you.
How did you achieve this feat of miracle? I applied the same time, CIC-M receive my package on June 15th. As of today my husband´s application only reads "we started processing your application on Sept 5th."

I think CIC in general processes women much faster compared to men in spousal cases. Also, my case was very straight forward, first marriage for both myself and my wife, and both of us are of the same ethnicity and from the same city. Parents and family from both side attended the wedding, etc. The case was also very well documented... I did hire an immigration lawyer in Ottawa to go over the documents before I submitted them. Even though I thought the application was complete the lawyer gave some very helpful tips and asked us to clarify some points in more detail, his justification is that whatever helps the visa officer understand your case better will help in the case getting processed faster.

Hope this helps!

Thank you for the info, today I am in the depression stage of my immigration cycle. The cycle goes from fine, annoyed, upset, angry and depression, I hope this cycle will end soon for use.

Again congrats on the successful application.

Please don´t be depressed, the worst thing you can do is despair at this stage. It hasn´t been long in your case, hopefully, your husband is going to get his PRV in less than 6 months :)

The docs I sent were the ones listed in the instructions (ID card copy with translation, transcripts and educational certificates, birth-certificate, copy of passport, etc.) additionally I also sent letters from my wife´s places of employment to show her activity since she graduated. You should attach things that you feel are relevant for your case and will help the visa officer understand your case better.

Give as much detail as possible regarding the marriage, how you two met?, was it an arranged marriage?, who in the close family attended or didn´t attend the marriage ceremony and if they didn´t attend why ? Attach all important wedding photos and write a number on the back, and give details regarding the ceremony and write the names of the people and the relationship to yourself and your wife on a seperate sheet of paper with reference to the photo number.

Hope this helps!

I think educational documents are needed even for spousal cases, you can double check with CIC for your region.
