Roles / Benefits

A Custodial Guardian’s primary role is to ensure that a minor-aged student is safe and has the necessary advice and support to reside safely within Canada. To do this one or more of our competent staff is assigned to monitor the minor-aged student and to offer support by:

  • Maintaining ongoing and deliberate contact with the student;
  • Liaising and/or intervening with school officials and representatives;
  • Offering guidance in opening bank accounts, purchasing pre-paid cell phones;
  • Signing parental waivers for school-related functions and activities;
  • Referrals to important community services such as libraries, fitness clubs, etc.;
  • Assist in accessing immediate and/or ongoing medical services;
  • Monitoring overall mental, physical and emotional well-being of the student;
  • Mediating disputes involving student and assigned host family or residence manager;
  • Explaining local laws and regulations; and
  • Responding 24/7 to emergency situations involving the student.

Once a Canadian Visa Officer is satisfied that adequate arrangements have been made for the care and support for an unaccompanied minor they will generally give favourable consideration to the approval of a study permit, provided the student has met all other requirements of the Canadian Government.
