I don't think you need to be living in one place for a year so much as you're living together. Not having concrete proof may make things a little tougher though.
I would include copies of the bills/mail that you have going to the various addresses and actually --- why not make a timeline? That seems to be the easiest way to sort everything out.
You are also going to have to prove that you've contributed financially to the relationship - highlighting major purchases, groceries, other bills etc.

We have the lease in both our names and got our landlords to write us a letter. We also pay utilities through them. The phone/internet bill is in my name and paid through my own account but my spouse transfers me money to help.

You are both going to have to write a letter about your relationship (how it started, when you both decided that you wanted to be in a committed relationship etc). The best time to explain your situation is in these letters.
Your Australian girlfriend will also have to write a letter about how she is going to be able to financially support you for the first two years of your visa (since you can't get EI or anything).

Make sure you get proof that the joint account existed. It sucks that it closed though because proof that it was being used regularly is good proof that you paid bills/had expenses together. Go ahead and open a new one and use it! Even if you just use it to start saving money.


I have to say that I'm envious that your girlfriend was able to get a second working holiday visa for Canada - that's almost completely unheard of. We had a terrible time trying to get my spouse any sort of work visa after his working holiday visa expired. He was here for a total of 3 years and for 2 of those he was unable to work.

Best of luck in this whole process!

^ You can renew a Canadian working holiday visa as many times as you want until you hit 30. Pretty sweet huh?

They must have changed the rules because every information packet I've read and every place I've called about it says you can only be issued one.

Is/was the person Australian? Maybe their nationality has something to do with it...like a recciprical (sp?) agreement?

Here it is from the website:

"1. Q: I am currently in Canada on a WHP work permit, can I re-apply to the WHP? I have previously worked in Canada on a WHP work permit, can I re-apply to the WHP? I am currently in Canada on a SWAP work permit, can I apply to the WHP? I have previously worked in Canada on a SWAP work permit, can I apply to the WHP?

A: Yes to all. There will be no limit to the number of times you can participate under the program as long as you continue to meet the age criteria and all other admissibility and eligibility requirements. You must submit the correct Program Participation Fee with any new application. To re-apply, please go to Working Holiday Program (WHP) Canada. You do not have to wait for your current work permit to expire before reapplying."

Check Working Holiday Program (WHP) Canada

=)
