3 possible options:

1) you include 18 yo on your applications now and get her PR status at the same time as you get it. She would have to come over to Canada to "land" (get PR status) with you but could then go back. Provided she is inside Canada for at least 730 days in a 5 year period then PR status is maintained.

2) you dont include her as an accompanying dependant in your initial application (note you still have to declare her on the forms you just wouldnt tick the box to say she is accompanying you) but, provided she is still under 22 at the time, you can sponsor her to immigrate to Canada as your dependent child.

3) she simply applies on her own later but then needs to meet the same criteria you did, have a job offer, possibly get employer to apply for LMO etc.

I HIGHLY recommend option 1). For the sake of just ticking a box to say she is accompanying you and buying an extra return flight you avoid the hassle of having to go down the sponsorship route or have her make her own application later on. I guess their is the chance that she doesn't come to Canada soon enough to meet the residency requirement but at least you are leaving your options open. And any visits to you during summer holidays etc also help to count towards the residency requirement.
