Well if you’ve been living together for 12 or more months you are considered common law. However, OSAP and CRA don’t seem to be super strict on this.

On the OSAP FAQ it seems like you would get more as a married student than as a single student. I would give them a call and ask about the exact specifics.

@Ms. Martian:  I agree with this.

I believe that getting married makes you an independent, as well.  When you’re a dependent, they expect your parents are helping partially.  Once your independent, they expect you to be on your own.  In my last year of school, I was old enough to be independent.  I got more money (not a lot, but a little) than I had received as a dependent.

Call them and ask.  They won’t bite 🙂
