The Minister of Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship announced today that the maximum age of a dependent child will be increased from the current “under 19” to “under 22.” This change will come into effect on October 24, 2017, and will apply to all new applications under all immigration programs operated by Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada.

This change will return the definition of a dependent child to the one in place prior to August 1, 2014. The driving force behind increasing the dependent child age was the Government of Canada’s commitment to family reunification. As the Minister of Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship has stated, this change will “bring economic and social gains to our country as it enhances our attractiveness as a destination of choice for immigrants and refugees.” By facilitating family reunification, the self-sufficiency and social and economic well-being of refugees and immigrants will also be improved.

I wish to express my sincere appreciation with the services we received from your law firm. Borders Law Firm provided us with an amazing, valuable resource and experience. I have worked with couple of law firms in the past but the experience with your firm was professional and personal. Frankly speaking, Devika and Phing were available whenever I needed legal help and crisp / precise with the entire process. I have nothing but good things to say about our experience with your firm. Thanks a ton for the best services and continue your great service. Suresh Bhoopathy

Borders Law Firm is my far the best experience I have had. After consulting and meeting with other immigration lawyers, I really felt confident with this firm. I have worked with Jenny Mao over the past year and I am happy to say that she has helped me out immensely and I am extreme grateful for not only her professionalism, but for her hard work and determination. I highly reccomend Borders Law Firm. From my experience, they are the best in the GTA.
