Canada dependent children eligibility
The Canadian Government has revised the definition of dependent children according to which an individual who wish to immigrate to Canada as a dependent child must be under or equal to 19 years of age instead 21, effective 1 August 2014.

According to new reform, dependent children must be under 19 years and unmarried or should not hold any common-law relationship.
Thus, children who are engaged in full-time studies and older than 19 years are not considered as dependents. But, children equal to or older than 19 years and cannot meet their expenses due to their mental or physical condition are still considered as dependents.

After making a broad research the Government of Canada has disclosed that children who are in-between the age of 15 and 18 can fit well in Canadian labor force and contribute more economic success than children between ages 19 and 21. 

Dependent children constitutes full one-third of immigrants entering country over each year. As the new reforms reflect major effect on individuals who wish to come to Canada along with their children over 19 years of age, the Government advises them to apply before 1 August 2014.
