Spousal Sponsor vs Express Entry as a Spouse

Hi all,

My partner and I are applying together through the EE FSW program. He is our principal applicant and I am his accompanying common law partner. When the Canada.ca website refers to “spouses being sponsored for immigration” would I fit into this category? Or is this only if he were already there as a permanent resident and then sponsored me to come separately?

Thank you!
