Cohabitation proofs (marriage-like relationship), financial support, shared bills, history of communication, photos from different events/timelines, letters from friends and family about the two of you and about your relationship

In my opinion the best proof is communication or chat logs. You need cohabitation proof and lots of financial support proof too, but communication proof is the MOST important.

Think about it, 2 friends can live together on the same lease. 2 friends can maybe show financial support and shared bills, or even photos together! 2 friends can get friends and family to write letters. Chat logs prove you are in a relationship if you talk about that you love each other, and if you say anything sexual it helps prove you have supported your partner economically, socially, emotionally and physically which is what they look at. Chat logs can also mention that you are "coming home from work" or things like that which show you were living together. Chat logs really show the immigration officer what each of you were thinking and when and that is really the best proof for them.

I'm not sure why you would say this. Chat logs are the absolute easiest thing to fake. Anyone can type whatever they want, whether it be "I love you" or something sexual. People could and do spend hours everyday creating elaborate chats about whatever the hell they want and it can be completely fake. Look at examples of Marriages of Convenience here on this forum where the applicant wasn't caught before PR. The Canadian spouse always talks about the hours they spent chatting or Skyping or whatever every day with their spouse before the spouse came to Canada and abandoned them.

Living together supercedes absolutely everything else as proof of a genuine relationship and as OP and spouse have already been refused as a Marriage of Convenience, living together is what they need to do to overcome their red flags.

This is true. In my case the strongest proof was that my wife traveled 3 times to see me and her stay was for more than 5 months at each visit. All this time we live together and and we are married. Many photographs with my family and friends. She sends me money when I need, we send 25 chat pages, but it is true that this can be falsified.
