Immigration Canada requires that all applicants under the age of majority age (18) who will apply for study permit have a legal custodian to act in place of a parent in times of emergency such as when medical attention is required. Applicants must provide proof in the form of notarized declarations one signed by the parent or legal guardian in the country of origin and one signed by the custodian in Canada.
To establish custodial guardianship in Canada two notarized documents are required. The Custodian Declaration must be prepared by the person who will serve as the student's Custodian in Canada. This document confirms that a local individual is both available and willing to represent the parent's interests in ensuring that the student has adequate care and support while in Canada.
The Parent Declaration must be prepared by the natural parents or legal guardians of the student. This document confirms that the natural parents or legal guardians of the student give permission for the assigned Custodian to act on their behalf to ensure their child has adequate care and support while in Canada.
