Moving back to Canada with stepchild?

3 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

I apologize if I'm not posting this in the right place, but I'm having trouble finding a good forum to ask questions regarding Canadian immigration since the RoadToCanada forum is down (what happened there??).

I'm presently in the middle of removing the conditions on my permanent resident status here in the US. I entered on a K-1 Visa from Canada to marry my US citizen husband, and have been living here for over 2 1/2 years now. We have talked about moving back to Canada at some point, and I'm trying to gather information to help us make that decision.

My question right now is regarding my husband's son. He's a US citizen and 14 years old, and lives with us 10 months out of the year. Assuming we get his mother's permission for him to move to Canada, if I sponsor him and my husband (and our daughter), will my stepson be allowed to stay and work in Canada once he's 18? I'm having difficulties finding information on this anywhere on the official Canadian immigration website. Your help would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you. :)

Yes. Once he has his permanent residency he keeps it, as long as he keeps residing in Canada, it does not become void when he turns 18 (you probably can't find any information on it because it's not an issue) :)
