Default Can I sponsor my common-law partner?

I am a Canadian who has been living in England for the past 18 months on a Right of Abode visa. During that time, I met my partner and we will have been living together for a year in March.

I am moving back to Canada in April to live with my parents because I have not been able to find permanent work and my partner has been supporting both of us for the past 5 months. I am also very homesick.

I want to sponsor my partner (and have just downloaded all documents) but am wondering whether I can as we will no longer be living together in April? He is actually coming to Canada in April as a holiday to help me move before returning to England.

Any advice would be welcome, especially if someone has been in a similar situation.

As long as you can prove that 12 months of living together as a couple then you should be fine.
