PROPOSED CHANGES TO THE AGE OF DEPENDENT CHILDREN
On May 10, 2013 the government of Canada has proposed regulatory amendments that would narrow the definition of dependent child by reducing the age limit to under 19 and removing the exception for full-time students.

The limitation in terms of civil status, i.e. that the child must not be a spouse or common-law partner, and the exception for older dependents unable to be financially self-supporting due to a physical or mental condition, would be retained.

This proposal has a coming into force date of January 1, 2014.
  For applicants who submit any sponsorship application and/or permanent resident application on or after this date, the proposed new definition for dependent child would apply. For all applicants who submitted a permanent resident application prior to January 1, 2014, the existing definition of dependent child would continue to apply.

In regards to the interpretation of this proposal, we are waiting for more information and we will advise you as soon as we are notified.
