Ask a Canada Law Question, Get an Answer ASAP!
Thank you for your question.
Are you asking about becoming a permanent resident of Canada?
Is your girlfriend your common law spouse?
You can come to visit but that visit can only be for six months. You may be able to stay longer if you leave and come back but there is no basis for you to move to Canada just like that. It is the same as i the US. People cannot move to the US and live there. They need to get a green card.
You also cannot work in Canada without a work permit. But if you are not entering the workforce it may be OK.
And if your girlfriend comes to Canada she would need to obtain a work permit.Do you see what I mean. Just think about how it works in the States and you will understand how it is in Canada as well.

Do you need any more help at this point in time?
We don't have green cards.
But if you want to work here for a time then you would need a work permit.
Your green card is what we call becoming a permanent resident.
I am terribly sorry to hear this.
Are you saying the $200 is just a credit for another flight?
