Can you clarify exactly what your wife's visa status is? Has she got PR, or is still still waiting for it and on a TWP?

Quickest way to get a SOWP is at a Port of Entry as long as eligible to get one which she would be. A copy of your TWP and $150 and thats it.

Thanks, (1)- Beside having all the necessary document from my wife's (work permit/Employment info, etc etc ) to show at Port of Entry, will they ask me proof of my funds and ticket for my return flight back home to usa as they did my first visit before we got married ? (2)- if she was the one to turn in my application for work permit made outside canada how long does that take, if it was submitted thru mail in Vegreville?
