My wife currently has...

My wife currently has a 5yr multiple Entry Visitors Visa for Canada. We have been married for 11+ years. We wish to apply for a PR for my wife. She is residing in the Philippines. During the 6-12 month approval process would my wife be allowed to visit me in Canada for a period of 1-2 months without her application for PR being cancelled or penalized?

I am a (Natural Born) Canadian Citizen. I have NO pending applications

Lawyer's Assistant: Have you talked to a lawyer yet?

No

Lawyer's Assistant: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?

Nothing else that I can think of
