Default To work or not to work? :))

Hi All.

I would like to sponsor my common-law partner while we're both living outside Canada (yes, I'm a citizen, not a PR).

At the moment I'm not working and wondering if getting a job before submitting an application is a good idea...


Here's the dilemma:

If I get a job now, from their point of view it can look like I'm a serious person who is going to help earning money for our settlement in Canada

or

they can see it as strenghtening ties with the country I'm supposed to "severe my ties" with?


Thanks!

I didn't work when I applied to sponsor, and I don't work now I'm in Canada (citizen, sponsored UK common-law partner). Imho, if you support yourself as a couple in whichever foreign country you're in, then you can continue the arrangement when you get to Canada, not sure what the problem is with that. It's nothing to do with CIC who brings home the bread in a relationship and I'd have told them that if they asked. Which they didn't
