Mr. Miller is the expert on this board, so I’m not at all saying he is wrong; however, we were unable to submit the Option C form as I (sponsor) was outside Canada. I used my tax assessment and I was approved for sponsorship.
Also, I’d caution you about submitting a conjugal application unless you have hard evidence that you were not able to live together for a full year to become Common-Law. Conjugal applications are one of the hardest to prove. You will need to prove that you were refused entry to your girlfriends country and she was refused entry to Canada. This would be difficult as Canadians generally don’t have much problems getting Visa’s. If you can’t prove this, your application will most likely be refused. If you can, live together for a full year and then apply through Common-law.

My 2005 assessment just arrived at my mom's place (it's my Canadian mailing address) - is that printout the same as an option C printout? Or is the Option C entirely different? I tried searching the forums but it failed, so apologies if this has already been asked.
