Default Does a half-brother count as a relative?

Hey,

Asked this on the Canadian Lifestyle and Culture forum and someone pointed me here (which is where I should have posted it originally!)

I'm working out how many points I have as I'd like to immigrate to Canada in the skilled worker category. Can anyone tell me if my half-brother (born during my Mother's previous marriage) counts as a relative? I'm sure I've read 'blood-relative' somewhere, which would appear to work, but can anyone absolutely confirm or deny?

As long as you and your brother have the same parent or parents and he is living in Canada then you may get 5 points for it as long as both facts (having same parent and your brother living in Canada) are conclusively documented.

Great, thanks! Should be no problem with either of them.

Will he need to be financially involved in any way (i.e. will he have to agree to support me should I go bankrupt or something)?
