Default Family in Canada...?

Dear Oracles,
I have a girlfriend in Edmonton and we've been dating since I went to
school in Vancouver (5 years). I am very reluctant to ask her to
marry/sponsor me as I don't mix business matters and personal matters.
My questions are:
Can I list her as my family in Canada(to get points)..?
What is that conjugal relationship and how does it work for
immigration advantages...?
Thank You in advance......

I don't see how asking your partner to sponsor you to Canada so you can live
with her has anything to do with business? The sponsorship agreement in such
a case is only now 3 years and merely stipulates that your partner will
support you and prevent you claiming welfare benefits during that period.
Under the new law you do not have to get married if that isn't what you
want, if your relationship has been there for 5 years like you say then you
should have no problem being sponsored as her conjugal partner which says
you must prove a serious relationship for at least a year.
Try looking at www.cic.gc.ca under family class sponsorship and read the
guide and information there to get a feel for it.
