For deceased family members you would have to count them the years they were still alive or the year they were deceased. And then not count them for the years after they had passed away.

makes logical sense to me. A deceased person should not count as a family member after they have passed on.
If CIC applies this for years to count back it would be very complicated. Previous years, a person WAS dependant (under 22, not married,..), do we count who was dependant for previous years?? How about a sponsor or principal applicant divorced in 2018?? Do they count ex-spouse or partner in 2016,2017?? I got confused when they say count deceased family members which does not go with examples or explanation. I guess CIC just changed the law and has not decided about complicated cases. Probably next year they will indicate clearly explanation and examples. Guide says count family members SPONSOR will financially responsible for. How does a sponsor responsible for deceased family member??

When count LICO & family member, follow this simple rule:

The year your family member increase (marriage, birth) or decrease (divorce, death), you have to use that number for that year only (and subsequent yr) as a count.

This is really confusing.
While family member defines as you,your spouse/commo-law, dependent child
family size defines as family members+sponsored family members.
And I realized that accompanying family members have not mentioned to be counted on website.
I have tried to ask very clear questions but once again CIC just copied answer and repeated. Whenever I got this. I will post it, i hope it will help further applicants. Thanks

The main issue, that there is no any change in guide or legislation, the only change is IRCC interpretation related to the same issue. Last year they refused a lot of cases for added family members at later stage, because they considered that family size should be calculated on the date of filing the application (according to Guide), this year according to IRCC examples IRCC will approve these cases. And in fact we will have that under the same rules applicants are treated differently. I really don't know how it will be this year, everything depends on case officer. You can try to point the issue and fill a comment on IRCC website, and IRCC will review it, as it happened with income.

I hope next year they will add more instructions, absolutely unfair if CIC counted babies were not born previous years as rules 2018. ( not this year)

Hey all - I received my invitation letter on Apr 24 and mailed out my package on May 14th, Canada Post tracking tells me it was delivered on May 16th. Received the email reminder this AM like many of you had. I now am concerned over one supporting document which I'm worried if by the time an officer opens the package and deems this supporting document to be incomplete and decides to return the package, it will be long after the deadline and therefore potentially making me ineligible to resend my application this year. Basically I have not gotten the mentioned supporting document notarized (certified) but simply translated myself. And after reading the reminder this morning and gone through what I have sent, I realized on the checklist it says all documents not in English or French need to be translated and notarized (certified) with a copy of the original version.

I have called CIC, the agent cant seem to find an application number yet. so she suggests trying sending webforms or resubmit a complete package with the right document this time.

There're only 10 days left till the deadline, should I take the risk and wait out for the AOR? or resubmit the whole application now?
