Unless you have a particularly high-ranking qualification (i.e. an MP, judge, high up the police force, etc) I can't see how this type of letter would benefit her application in the slightest. There are other ways of proving the relationship, most of which have been detailed on this forum already (do a search through previous posts for suggestions). Personally, I wouldn't recommend you write this letter, not least of which, and I mean no offense by this, but English is clearly not your first language.

Assuming that the letter is in support of a common law or spousal relationship then it can be from anyone who has known the couple for a long time. I got a letter from friends stating that they had known us for x years, that we had been living together for y years, that they had attended functions at our house, been on holiday with us etc etc. Got it notarised by a notary public and attached it as supporting evidence of our relationship. IIRC I had two letters from friends, one from my father and one from my partners father. This was as recommended by our immigration lawyer and must of worked cos I got PR in 6 mths and are here now!

Hi,
There are many countries where English is not spoken and people apply from there to migrate to Canada all the time. So, I don't think that English not being the first language is a problem in migrating, let alone writing the supporting letter for a friend. I got 2 letters from our friends, one is from France and another is from China.

About the letters being accepted as an evidence or not, it really depends on the officer. No-one can say that this thing will put more weight on your application and another thing won't. In our case, we came to know from CAIPS that they never looked at our photographs, But Interview officer did have a look at the supporting letters from our friends and my family, which were just simple emails and not even notarised.

I am going to send you the letters I have, just to give you an idea. Hope that helps you and your friend a little.
