If you remove a family member as a dependent
You are responsible for taking the steps needed to remove family members from your list of dependents in the following cases: A family member no longer is or no longer needs to be your dependent; a family member begins work or dies; or a family member earns income beyond the standard income amount.
Additionally, please take the steps necessary to remove a family member receiving compensation for loss of income such as employment insurance (unemployment benefits), Maternity Allowance, or Injury and Sickness Allowance from your list of dependents, depending on the amount of compensation he or she receives (see the dependent certification criteria).
