A couple is considered common law

In the eyes of the Canada Revenue Agency (CRA), a couple is considered common law: 


  • after living together for 12 months; 
  • after becoming parents to a child by birth or adoption; 
  • if one partner takes custody and control of the other person’s child. 


Couples must inform the CRA of their marital status change by filling out form RC65.
