Default Extension/change of status, Experts-Pl help!

Hello all,

Presently my wife and myself are on student visas doing graduate studies in Canada. My wife is likely to complete her course by the end of July (visa is valid until Aug 31, 2003) , and I will have to continue for another six months or so (visa is valid until Oct 15, 2003) to complete my thesis requirements.

In view of the above reason, I would like to apply for extension of my student visa until Jan/Feb 2004. At the same time, I wish to apply for my wife's visa as well. Now I have some questions and concerns as to how to apply simultaneously for both ( the extension of my visa and change of status of her visa from student to dependent). I will be thankful if anyone can answer my queries.

Qes 1:
Would it be possible to include her name in my aplication (pl note that we have different expiry dates on our current authorizations), if so, under what category (she won't be a student after this July, so her status has to be changed from Student to dependent)?

Ques 2: If she is given a visa (dependent) , would she be able to work without applying for any work permit? or Does she need to apply for open work permit now itself, so that she can work if she gets visa?

Any input on the above will be greatly appreciated.
