I am currently working in Canada and have been living with my significant other for the better part of nearly 3 years now, we have been together close to 4 years (we have been living together continuously for the last 15 months). I qualify for express entry through CEC though my CRS score is 450 and I have yet to be able to get an ITA as my score is just too low. I don't have any other ways of raising it and am now 41 years old so that part of my score is dropping as well. So, my current work visa ends at the end of June and I am wondering if we should apply for SCLC sponsorship through common-law and begin that process and apply for the open work visa as well. I have saved lots of supporting documents for sponsorship but felt express entry would be faster though it has been challenging. Any thoughts and ideas are welcome!
