I’m from Philippines under live-in caregiver program. i met my fiance (Indian) in Singapore when i was working there. so before i came here in Canada we got marry in India but our marriage is not registered because i need to stay in India for a month to be able to registered it. before going to India we consulted their registers office if we can register the marriage they said yes. so we did have this Indian wedding. later when we go to register it but they said they can’t because I’m non-Indian and because of that i need to stay in India for 1 month before they register it. so we explained that to them that we inquire before but they said maybe they just didn’t understand fully. if i want it registered i need to go to Delhi and have like a court marriage there, i had booked my ticket and my employer in Canada needed me asap that’s why i didn’t have a chance to settle it. so now I’m planning to take a vacation and have it registered in Singapore. do u think it will not affect my papers when i apply for my pr next year. because i need to sponsor my husband right. or which is better i just leave it that way i apply for pr as a single then when i get my pr I’ll just go back and register it.

In order to maintain your status in Canada, you need to comply with the terms of your visa and work permit. In order to get PR through the live-in caregiver program, you need to comply with the bellow:

There are two options for determining whether you meet the employment requirements of the Program; you will be required to select one of the following two options on the Document Checklist (IMM 5282).

Having completed 24 months of authorized full-time employment as a live-in caregiver within four years from the date you entered Canada under the Live-in Caregiver Program, OR
Having completed a total of 3,900 hours (within a minimum of 22 months which may include a maximum of 390 hours of overtime) of authorized full-time employment as a live-in caregiver within four years from the date you entered Canada under the Live-in Caregiver Program.

If registering your marriage in Singapore will threaten your ability to apply for PR in the time-frame you want, maybe you should consider waiting.

However, if there is a time limit on registering your marriage, then you should probably do that as soon as you can.
