The following relationships with a Canadian citizen or permanent resident are considered functionally equivalent within the meaning of the Canadian law for the purpose of immigration to Canada.
To be considered a spouse, you must be legally married to the sponsor. The marriage must have been considered valid at the time it was entered into under the law of the jurisdiction in which you were married and under Canadian law, regardless of where you lived after you were married. An example of a marriage that could be recognized abroad, but not in Canada would be a marriage where one of the partners was legally married to two or more persons at the same time by virtue of the legislation of a country foreign.
You are considered a common-law partner under Canadian law if you have lived with your partner in a conjugal relationship for at least one year (12 consecutive months, not necessarily a full calendar year). This 12-month period need not be absolutely continuous; brief absences for work or family reasons are acceptable. Since you will not be able to present a marriage certificate, Canadian immigration authorities may require additional proof of the authenticity of your relationship. Please note that "cohabitation" means more than simply living in the same dwelling; you must have combined their business, including economic ones.
The spousal partner category is intended for couples who would have been eligible for the spouse or domestic partner categories, but were prevented from doing so by local law or other factors beyond their control, such as an immigration barrier or marital status. For example, if you were married to someone else and local law did not allow you to divorce.
Lack of cohabitation due to the unwillingness of one or both partners to leave school or work to be with the other partner cannot be considered an acceptable reason for not living together. In addition, you cannot be considered a conjugal partner if you have been living apart from your partner for one year or more and either of you is a conjugal partner or domestic partner of another person.
