Default Quick Question about Stepson.

When we applied for PR my stepson was on the paperwork as a non accompanying dependant, so he's had his medicals and stuff, if he decided he wanted to give Canada a go, what would his next steps be? He's 21 in October. Would he have the five years from landing that ordinary PR's get?

Did he land with you? If so, how long ago?

I'm sorry, I think there might be better qualified people out there who might answer this one. I really don't know.

Default Re: Quick Question about Stepson.

You would have to sponsor under Family Class (if you are a PR) BUT you need to check the age limit - once he gets to age 22 or so he may no longer be eligible. Research the rules on the CIC website.

Or are you saying your application for PR is still pending? You don't tell us, and it makes a difference.

The 5 year period would not apply to a non-accompanying dependent. You can sponsor him if he is still dependent under the CIC criteria and you are resident in Canada as PRs.

No we are fully PR, I had heard there was a cut off at 21, so I am now guessing he has until the day before he turns 22 to make up his mind and have his app submitted?

SO he would have to land and live here straight away? That wouldn't give him time to finish his teaching degree, he still has a year to go

Well he could land and then return to finish his degree provided it was not over 3 years absence required.

Oh I see. Would he have to apply the same way we did, or is it something we do? Just want to get all the info in place for him, he just mentioned it the other night and apparently he said something to his Dad a couple of weeks ago too. If I can give him the complete picture, he can then decide.

Thanks

Default Re: Quick Question about Stepson.

You apply to sponsor him and follow the guides for him to apply for PR. When he gets his visa he can land and then return to UK to finish his education before finally settling in Canada. Time flies so get cracking before he passes the age limitation.

Ok Thanks for that, we'll try to get it sorted before he ages out
