IRCC hikes maximum age of dependants to 22

Toronto immigration lawyer Robin Seligman tells AdvocateDaily.com that immigrant families will benefit from an expanded definition of dependants.

On Oct. 24, Immigration Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) officially changed the boundary of its dependant definition from “under 19” to “under 22,” in a move that was promised earlier this year.

“This is great news for families, who will find it easier to stay together with this newly expanded category,” says Seligman, principal of immigration law boutique Seligman Professional Corporation.
