Consent Letters for Children Travelling Abroad

The Government of Canada advises that children should carry a consent letter when they travel abroad without each of their custodial parents, guardians, or other legal decision-makers.

Examples of situations in which children should carry a consent letter include when they travel alone, with a group or with only one of their custodial parents.

A travel consent letter can prevent problems at the border by assuring foreign authorities that the child has permission to leave Canada. It is strongly recommended that a travel consent letter be certified or sealed by a commissioner for oaths or notary public so that the authenticity of the letter will not be questioned.

For more information, consult the answers to Frequently Asked Questions prepared by the Government of Canada.

You can create a travel consent letter for free using the interactive form provided on the Government of Canada web site. Contact us when you are ready to sign the printed copy of your travel consent letter.

Custodianship Declarations

Minor children who come to Canada to study without a parent or legal guardian must be under the custodial care of an adult while they are in Canada.

Custodianship is arranged by means of a custodianship declaration, which must be signed and sealed by a notary public.

You can create a custodianship declaration for free using the standard custodian form letters provided on the Citizenship and Immigration Canada web site. Contact us when you are ready to sign the printed copy of your custodianship declaration.
