From what I know, you HAVE to put the information of your parents and siblings in the relevant sections. It doesn't matter if you're single, since this form has to be filled out by all the applicants (if you did have a husband for example and he went with you, both of you would have to fill this form -2 forms.-)
That's exactly my question: is "family members"on IMM008 generic actually a relevant section for parents/siblings or not?
the guide does NOT require to fill in the info about parents/siblings in this particular section - only "spouses, common-laws and children". so if I do not have them, is it ok if I put "N/A"?
Or should I still give the info about parents and siblings, because they still are
my family ?
I could still write about them just in case, but I do not want to make a mistake...
I don't know exactly what you mean by "a relevant section"... You have to fill out ALL sections...
I also don't understand why you say "so if I do not have them is it ok if I put N/A" but then afterwards you say "or should I still give info... ... because they are still my family". DO you have brothers and sisters or not??? If you do, you MUST enter that information.
If you look at the link/guide I just posted, it tells you in a very clear way what you have to put in each section.
For example, in the first section, the only one that is "optional" is your spouse/common law parter, because you may not have one. But you STILL have to put YOUR information AND your parents information there... (It also tells you that if you do not have a spouse/common law partner you have to sign at the bottom of that section, with doing so being your "formal" declaration that you don't have one.
Section B is also optional because if you have no children, you have nothing to put there (and again, you must sign declaring this is so, if that's the case).
Section C lastly is similar to B, in the sense that you may not have any siblings, so if that's the case that would be blank, and again you have to sign at the bottom.
Section D is a general signature stating all you filled/signed above is correct.
Again the guide can be found here: http://www.cic.gc.ca/english/pdf/kits/guides/EG7.pdf
and it's on page 33. You'll find this explains pretty clearly what you have to do on all sections of your applications.
