I have to answer the following question, and I don't understand what it means.

Are you a dependent of a person who is or will be working in Canada and you're of working age?

  • What does it mean by "are you a dependent of a person who is or will be working in Canada? Does "dependent of" mean "responsible for" here?

  • What does it mean by "of working age"? Does it mean "in the age of serving as employee"? (Say, from 20 years old to 60 years old.)

Are you a dependent of a person who is or will be working in Canada?

This means: Are you being supported (financially) by a person who is or will be working in Canada?

If someone is supporting someone else who lives with them, say a boyfriend or a friend down on her luck, they might be able to claim that person as a dependent. It doesn't necessarily have to be someone related to them.

Are you of working age?

This simply means: Are you old enough to legally work (under Canadian laws I presume)?
