Most of our students enrolled in our programs come to Canada without their parents. Students under the age of 18 years is considered a minor and must have a legal custodian (guardian). The legal custodian acts as the primary contact between the school and family, and is responsible for the student’s well-being while living in Toronto.

The legal custodian must be a Canadian Citizen residing in Toronto. For students who will be living with a relative in Toronto, the relative can be the legal custodian. If a student coming to Canada does not have a relative, our Coordinators can act as the legal custodian. If students / families require this service, our coordinator will sign and submit a custodianship agreement (notarized) between himself/herself and the student’s family.


Minors (less than 18 years of age) who travel to Canada to study without a parent/legal guardian must be cared for by a custodian. We provide custodianship and the notarized document.


Toronto Five Star’s Basic Custodianship service is designed for international high school students under the age of majority. The custodian is the advisor on school matters, the point of contact for the school, and an academic monitor on behalf of the parents.


Toronto Five Star’s Premium Custodianship service is one step up from Basic Custodianship. It is designed for parents who wish to fully govern their child’s overseas living and studying arrangements. The custodian not only monitors the academic progress of the student, but also provides effective support in matters of everyday life.
