How long do you have to co inhibit to be common law husband and wife

In Canada…If you start cohabitating with someone who is the parent of your child, you are considered to be common-law partners from the time you move in together. A “parent”, for this purpose, includes an adoptive parent (whether in law or in fact) as well as a natural parent.If there are no children involved, you only become common-law partners after you have lived together in a conjugal relationship for 12 continuous months. The 12-month period includes any period during which you were separated for less than 90 days because of a breakdown in your relationship.
