Elderly Canadian parent as dependent?

Are there any Canadians out there who claim a parent on their taxes here in Taiwan? I am specifically wondering about the documents required from Canada to do this. Any advice is appreciated. Thanks.

A copy of their birth certificate and a proof of address/residence. Contact the tax office for more info, they are very helpful and have staff that are fluent in English.

I was wondering if one can claim parents-in-law as dependents in Canada?

My fiancee is currently working and we’re getting married soon. Can she claim my parents as dependents? My parents are retired while hers are working still in Taiwan (if anyone is thinking why not her own parents).

i don’t think you can do it until you are married. then, you can file jointly, and can claim your parents (& grandparents).

They also wanted my parents’ ‘alive certificate’ - I got a notary public to write a note, notarized, of course, saying that they were still alive. A tax worker told me that a recent etter addressed to my parents would have been enough proof.
