I am sorry to hear this but not surprised. A 4 year visit is exceedingly long. There was non likelihood that you would be able to continue as a visitor.

Your aunt cannot sponsor you.

You could be sponsored by a spouse including a common law spouse. If you don't have a spouse you will have to go home and then apply on your own. If you are a skilled worker that could work.

Or you can try and get a job offer and then apply for a temporary work permit.

I know that isn't what you want to hear but does that clarify the issues for you?

Please feel free to post back with any follow-up questions you may have. If you don't have any then I hope I have earned a 5 star rating but if you don't feel that I have please don't hesitate to reply back and let me know what more I can do to assist you. Finally, please know that even after you rate me I will be here for you and you can ask follow-up questions if you think of them later on at no further charge of course.
