I will get married with my Canadian partner, and plan to buy a house for us in Canada. However, I am currently not a permanent resident of Canada yet. I will apply for being a permanent resident of Canada right after getting married under the category of "sponsored spouse". However, this type of application is known to take around one year to be processed and finalized. So, my question is that: "Can I (the person who is sponsored by my Canadian partner) buy a house alone under my name while waiting for the final result of permanet resident application with the same procedure as any other permanent residents and Canadians?"
Or will I be charged by tax department as a foreigner if I buy the house under my name alone?
Or does the house have to be bought and signed by both me and my Canadian partner?
