IMM 5669 Schedule A Background Declaration
This form must be filled out by the principal applicant, including when they are younger than 18 years old although in that case the form should be signed by a parent or guardian.
The first part is basic personal information you have to fill out in other forms as well.
However, it also includes personal information about the principal applicant’s parents in sections 4 (father) and 5 (mother). Make sure all the information is consistent across the various forms you have to fill out.
Section 6 lists potential criminal or immigration problems you may have had in the past. If you answer yes on any of these, you will have to provide details (you can add lines to the forms with the + key).
Section 7 is where you list your secondary and post-secondary (if any) details.
Section 8 is where you list what you have done (study, work, unemployed, etc.) since turning 18 years old. Remember to be specific when listing the occupations you have had. DO NOT write words like employed. Give your job title.
Sections 9 lists membership in unions and political organizations while section 10 asks you to list any government jobs you may have held.
Next, section 11 asks you to list military service while section 12 requires you to list your previous addresses over the last 10 years or since you have turned 18 (if you are younger than 29 years old).
Finally sign the Declaration but DO NOT sign the Interpreter Declaration nor Solemn Declaration as this must be signed in the presence of an immigration official if they decide to require it.
