Residency status is determined by CRA on a case-by-case basis. There are primary and secondary residential ties. Primary ties include the ownership of a home in Canada or the residence of a spouse or dependants. Secondary ties might include personal property in Canada, social ties such as memberships, economic ties such as bank accounts, a Canadian driver’s licence, a Canadian passport, as well as possible health insurance coverage within a Canadian province or territory. If you have established similar residential ties to another country, these could be considered relevant to the CRA’s consideration of your status too.

If you are unsure of your spouse's residency status, you will need to contact the Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) and confirm it with them. If you are in Canada or the United States, you can call the CRA at 1-800-959-8281. If you are elsewhere you can call 613-940-8495. This page has more ways to contact the CRA: https://www.canada.ca/en/revenue-agency/corporate/contact-information/telephone-numbers.html
