As per IRCC, Sibling (brother or sister) defined as :Sorry another question about the IMM5669 Schedule A form that was requested from us a few weeks ago - I filled out the section for step siblings but I couldn't see anywhere for step-parents? Seems a bit strange. It's sent back now but surely they would want my step mother's details? Any ideas @legalfalcon Thank you.
For Express Entry, a sibling means your brother or sister related to you by:
- blood (biological):
- brother or sister
- half-brother or sister
- adopted brother or sister
- includes a step-brother or step-sister who is not related to you by blood or adoption and your parents are married or in a common law relationship
- this is true on both the date you submit your profile and when you submit your application for permanent residence
- must be 18 years old
- must be a citizen or permanent resident of Canada
- can be the brother or sister of your spouse or common-law partner who will come with you to Canada.
Further, the information about step parents is required, since you can sponsor your stop parents, and thus their info has to be there in the background declaration:
Example 2: Sponsoring your father, your step mother and their son
You can sponsor your father, his spouse and their son (your half-brother). On the application, your father must be the main applicant, called the principal applicant, because he’s related to you. Your step mother can’t be the principal applicant. She’ll be listed as your father’s dependant. Your step-brother can be added as a dependant only if he qualifies as a dependent child.
Example 3: Sponsoring your grandparents, your mother and your step father
In this situation, you’ll have to submit 2 separate sponsorship applications: 1 per couple.
On your grandparents’ application, one of them (either your grandmother or your grandfather) will be designated as the main applicant, called the principal applicant. The other will be designated as a dependant.
- If you designate your grandmother as the principal applicant, your grandfather will be the dependant.
- If you designate your grandfather as the principal applicant, your grandmother will be the dependant.
