All parents, whether married or not, have the same obligations to their children

Michele Gordon, lawyer in Barrie, Ontario explains if child support is payed in a common law relationship

Although married and common law couples are not always treated the same way under the law, in terms of support claims, whether child or spousal, married and common law couples have very similar responsibilities. All parents, whether married or not, have the same obligations to their children.
Children are never faulted for the marital status of their parents. The court continually demonstrates special care and attention to the best interest of the child, regardless of whether his/her parents were cohabitants or married.
