Need more info.

Are you in a common-law relationship with your girlfriend (meaning your relationship is marraige-like and you have co-habited for at least 12 months)?

(if yes then sponsorship may be an option)

Did you come to Canada with your girlfriend as her common-law partner and is your girlfriend working as a skilled worker under a temp work permit?

(if yes then you would qualify for an open work permit)

How old are you?

(If under 30 you may be able to get a BUNAC visa which is a 1-year open work permit)
