Have been ocming to this thread for a few months now, without posting.
A bit of background: I am an Australian in a common-law relationship with my Canadian boyfriend.
We are applying for my PR with him as my sponsor from OUTSIDE of Canda. HE currently lives with me here in Aus, but we intend to move back permanently around April 2013.
Just a couple of questions:
1. I already have a Welcome letter for a year wrking VISA that I applied for in February 2012 (before we knew what month we would be going back to Canada) If my spouse VISA is sent for processing between now and April 2013, and I still am waiting for it to be processed, can I use that work VISA to travel over there whislt I am waiting for the spouse VISA to be processed? Do I need to come back to Australia between that time?
2. My partner currently is working in Australia, so we would need Proof of Intent to live in Canada permanently. I noticed there was a link stickied on the first page. Would a letter from my boyfriend's future boss in Canada and from family members stating our intent to permanently reside in Canada be enough? We would have to look for properties online before we go, but most likely will be staying with his mum until we find somewhere suitable, meaning we will have sent our application long before we find somewhere.
Thanks in advance! (and let me know if anything I have said is unclear!)
