Hi,
I'm Brazilian and I'm in a relation with my boyfriend(Canadian from Quebec) for almost 3 years, I visited Canada couple of times but finally I came to stay.
A lawyer charged me 3500 + the process fees, that's about 6.000 Canadian dollars, I'm a bit freaked out to pay all this just to get my residency, I've heard I can do everything from the government's website but I've been countless hours on their website and I'm a bit lost...
As my status in the country I'm a student 6 months VISA (I can't work with that, so I don't have all that money to pay)
I'm going to get married because according to the lawyer is going to speed up the process (But i don't know how).
Does anyone know anything about that, I'd appreciate any help. Or I'd have to borrow this money from somewhere...

Speaking as a Canadian, check with a local immigrant organization or a Brazilian-Canadian organization.  That doesn't sound right to me.

There are a lot of Portuguese in Canada (more than Brazilians).  Here's one organization that you could start with.

Also look for organizations working on Gay immigration.

It would definitely help if you and your boyfriend were married.
