We are currently living rent-free with my mother while I search for a job, so no ownership or rental agreement; We don't have any utilities in our name; my wife, being a foreigner, doesn't have a local health plan or any other government document in Canada.
Do you think this requirement for documentary proof that we're living together in Canada is a deal-breaker? Should we wait until we have something on paper showing joint residence before applying? Problem is, I don't see this happening anytime soon, and for her to apply for any of these things (even a bank account), she has to demonstrate that she is a resident or under consideration. It's a catch 22.
