Students enrolled at elementary schools must reside with parent(s). Students in Middle School and Secondary School and under the age of 19 years must have completed two additional documents before a visa office will issue the authorization. The first required document is a custodianship declaration completed by an adult Canadian citizen or permanent resident, stating that arrangements have been made for the custodian to act in place of a parent. THIS DOCUMENT MUST BE NOTARIZED IN CANADA.
The second required document is similar to the first but must be completed by the parent or legal guardian of the child in the country of origin stating that arrangements have been made for the custodian to act in the place of the parent. In other words, the parent acknowledges the custodial role with respect to the child. THIS DOCUMENT MUST BE NOTARIZED IN THE COUNTRY OF ORIGIN.
Reminder: your study permits must be kept current . Renewals can be done from within Canada by completing the renewal process from Customs and Immigrations Canada.
Information on custodial requirements can be found in the CIC Manuals and Operations Memoranda; Overseas Processing; Chapter OP 10 “Processing Student Authorizations” Section 2.7.1.
