Traveling with my children is one of the greatest joys I have. They truly love being on vacation and have such an amazing time. They also love experiencing new things and learning different cultures. Seeing the world through a child’s eye really makes you take a step back and remember the important things in life.
Did you know that there are extra steps that you should take if both legal parents are not traveling with the children in order to make your travel plans go smoothly? The Government of Canada has a recommended consent form that should be filled out completely when both legal parents are not traveling. Having this form already filled out could prevent any hang ups or delays on your trip. This not only applies to single parents traveling with their children, but it is also needed, for example, when a child is traveling with grandparents.
By being prepared before you travel, you will be sure to have a fantastic vacation!
