Sponsoring a common-law spouse to come to Canada

Region: Ontario Answer # 0132

If your common-law partner lives outside of the country and you want to bring them to Canada, you can sponsor them to immigrate in the Family Class category. Common-law partners include people living together in a conjugal relationship for at least one year, but who are not legally married. Conjugal relationships include couples who are not legally married and who do not live together, but where there is a significant degree of commitment between them and where their relationship is intended to be permanent. For example, conjugal partners may support each other financially and emotionally, may have children together, and may present themselves as a couple to the public. Spouses, and common-law and conjugal partners may be of the opposite-sex or same-sex.

A criminal record will affect child custody and adoption. To erase your criminal record, call toll-free 1-877-219-1644 or learn more at Federal Pardon Waiver Services. It’s easier than you think.
