Has anyone successfully declared [opposite sex] common law partner in Canada? I would really like to know how the process went and what documents you provided.

I have reviewed all the requirements on the Canadian Immigration website...I just want some true-life stories to help me sort it all out

I have. But I'm not sure what you mean by "declared a common-law partner"? You mean like just getting the document that legitimizes your relationship?

It's like very simple. There's this document (http://www.servicecanada.gc.ca/eform...8-01)e_cpp.pdf) you provide the documentation for whichever option on (2) (3) or (4) you mark, you sign it and you get it notarized. Any notary public (and some immigration lawyers) can do that.

Takes like 5 min or less.

As a quick reminder though, you can only have a common law partnership if you reside in a common law province, so not in Quebec which has civil law. The length of cohabitation I believe also differs.
