A custodian is a responsible adult, who is a Canadian citizen or a permanent resident, who will take care of and support the minor child. A custodian is optional for minors 17 years of age and older, but an officer can request one on a case-by-case basis.
Who is a minor child?
Each province and territory decides the age when a person becomes an adult. This is known as the age of majority. A person under the age of majority is a “minor child”.

Do I have to get the Custodian Badge to be custodian for students?
No, you don’t need a custodian badge to accept booking from students. However, custodians with such badges rank higher than yours and get more exposure to the students. More exposure leads to a better chance of getting booked. Without the badge, students may consider your custodian is not qualified by Homadorma standards.
