Effective August 1, 2014, the definition of a dependent child is changing for Citizenship and Immigration Canada’s (CIC’s) immigration programs. The age at which a child will be considered a dependant is being reduced, from under 22 to under 19. Young adults will be able to apply to come to Canada on their own merits, as foreign students or through various economic programs.
