Default Marrying before applying for PR or marrying after applying for PR?

Hello, everyone!

I'll need all the help i can get. I am from the philippines and im about to get my 2-year working visa. but before i leave the country, my boyfriend and i want to get married first. Which do you think would be a faster route for sponsoring him? which would take the least time of sponsoring, marrying before applyng for a PR or marrying after applying for a PR?..

thanks!

If you are going to be separated while you are in Canada and not living together, I would suggest getting married first.

I don't think you can sponsor anyone from a WHV. You require a more permanent status.
