I am going to apply for permanent residence for Canada. I have already done the self assessment but I have some doubts on the point calculation on Factor 6-Adaptability part. Here is the link that I look at. http://www.cic.gc.ca/english/informa...uides/EG74.asp
I am married. My wife's level of education is Master's degree where I am supposed to be able to claim 5 points on Factor 6- Adaptability Factor (A. Spouse or common-law partner level of education). But the problem is that my wife does NOT want to accompany me to Canada until I get a job there and settle down for 1-2 years. And I think I can sponsor her later when I get the PR and can settle down there. So there is no point to apply for her now. And I can save about $1,050 as well.
My question is that will I get these 5 points on Factor 6- Adaptability Factor if my wife does NOT ACCOMPANY me to Canada? As far as I can check, it does not say anywhere that in order to claim 5 points, the spouse has to ACCOMPANY the applicant to Canada. (eventhough it is logical that the spouse has to accompany in order to get 5 points).
And are there any complications if I apply for myself only first and will sponsor my wife later? Will it decrease the chance that I will get the PR?
Could anyone shed some lights, pls? These 5 points are very important (meaning pass or fail)
