CANADA:  Age limit increased for children applying as dependants

As reported in ReloTalk back in May the Canadian government wanted to implement important changes to their immigration regulations, including raising the age of dependant children from 19 to 22 years old.

This change finally became effective as of 24 October 2017 and is applicable to all immigration applications. However, the new definition only applies if the child is not married or in a common law relationship.

How does this affect the client?

This can have a positive impact for foreign nationals relocating to Canada with a child between the ages of 19 and 22 years old. This means that no independent immigration application is required to be filed for children falling under the definition.
