Spouse Sponsorship and Workpermit.

Canada Immigration Forum (discussion group)

Subject: Spouse Sponsorship and Workpermit.
  I just got married to a girl on a student permit and have been exploring the best and efficient way to forward her application to CIC.It takes around 7 months (typically) to sponsor your spouse who is in canada on a visitor/student permit.

I was under the impression that as long as the immigration does not come through you are not allowed to work unless you are on a work permit but then I was going through the guide found here (http://www.cic.gc.ca/english/pdf/kits/guides/3900E.pdf) and I got a little confused. The paragraph that confused me is down below;

"Working and studying
As a general practice, we advise applicants in writing when they are eligible to apply for a work or study permit. However, if you already hold a work or study permit and want to maintain your temporary resident status, you may apply to extend you status before you receive our letter. Whether you apply before or after receiving our letter, refer to the guides for Applying to Change Conditions or Extend Your Stay in Canada. These guides may be obtained by visiting our Web site or by contacting the Call Centre. If you already have a permit, you may continue to work or study for the duration of the document. It is illegal to work or study without authorization from Citizenship and Immigration Canada."

So the question now is
1- can an application for work permit be made along with sponsorship application and if so do you need anything other than a job offer or do you need an HRDC approval as well.(she graduated from here with a diploma and was denied a workpermit stating that her institution was a private institute and she needs hrdc approval and we never bothered to get HRDC approval)
2-SHould police clearance certificate be attached from canada along with the application and also police clearance from the home country.(Or do you even need a police clearance certificate from the home country.)
3-Should medicals be done beforehand and send the proof of medicals done along with the application.
Any answers?
Fingers crossed and waiting.
