The way this works is that the sponsorship application and the permanent resident application go in together. Once you are approved as a sponsor your spouse's application will be processed.
She will need to undergo medical, background and criminal checks.
Here is the link to the webpage that has all the information and forms:
She can try to get a visitor's visa. This is sometimes approved so long as she can show strong ties to back home.

could you help giving more hints how to show strong ties?
and what about if i myself is her sponsor here in Canada, and would show my own bank account which is very good position to bear her visit expenses.?
Customer reply replied 3 years ago
but is it required to prove that she will be back home if she's supposed to live in future in Canada with her husband??
Lawyer: Debra, Lawyer replied 3 years ago
Yes because she cannot enter Canada as a visitor with the intention of remaining. So she cannot come as a visitor if she is planning to move to Canada when she enters. She has to show a job, a home, ties to the community etc.
