My Cambodian wife has expressed a desire to go to Canada for quite some time now , we are well into completing the neccessary forms and have accumulated most required documentation etc .

Now she is talking about what if she does not like it/cannot settle with the strange life etc , it would have been a waste of all the time and money . we can qualify far easier for her to just visit at much lower cost and save a lot more work .

My question , if we go with the visitor visa , take all of the aquired immigrant paperwork with us , do you think it would be easy to get her a PR card ?

Thank you for any and all advice , the government site is not the easiest to understand and know you have it right .

I'm assuming your occupation is on THE LIST of 38 and you plan, based on your wife's decision, to make an inland application for a PR visa.
If this is so, my understanding is that your wife will gain the same status as you as long as she is on the same application.

If your wife accompanies you upon your return she can apply at POE for a SOWP (Spousal Open Work Permit). Just make sure you have sufficient evidence of your marriage including translations if necessary.
