    CEC PR application while being in a Common-Law relationship

    He's already in Canada on Post Graduate Work Permit - there will be no landing. We're both currently living in Canada. Does that change anything ? Or is he still considered an "accompanying" spouse despite the fact that he has established his status in Canada independently from me.
