SchoolAdvice education professionals provide guardianship services for students residing in Canada or the US while attending school.

What is Guardianship? Who needs it?

Citizenship and Immigration Canada requires unaccompanied foreign students studying in Canada to have a legal guardian in place if they are under the age of majority.  Age of majority is 18 in Alberta, Manitoba, Ontario, Prince Edward Island, Quebec, and Saskatchewan. In British Columbia, New Brunswick, Newfoundland, Northwest Territories, Nova Scotia, Nunavut, and Yukon the age of majority is 19.

Under the SchoolAdvice Guardianship program, temporary custody of your child is transferred to SchoolAdvice for the duration of the school year.  A SchoolAdvice guardian acts in place of parents to provide assistance with emergencies, accommodation, immigration, travel and the overall success of your child.
