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.
1) I would assume that my wife, as the applicant, fills in her copy, and that I as her Canadian sponsor do not? Or do I take the instructions literally and fill one in is as well as per the instructions, listing all my (already Canadian) family members?
2) My wife's only immediate Brazilian relative is her mother. In her copy of the form, I presume she'd still have to put me down me as spouse and my son as her step-son, although we're both Canadians?
