When are you getting married?

Have you lived together and if so for how long?

Customer: replied 9 months ago.
Can we marry after her work permit expires
we have not lived together
Expert:  Legal Ease replied 9 months ago.

If you marry her you can immediately apply to sponsor her as your spouse and as soon as those papers go she is permitted to remain in Canada though she will not have legal status.

And the law has changed and she is now able to apply for an open work permit as soon as you start the application for sponsorship.

So the way you can keep her is to marry her and start sponsoring her as your spouse for permanent residency status.
