My friend is trying to find out what is needed to apply for a work visa in Canada. You get extra points for having a relative with citizenship. However, we’re confused about whether his particular family relationship counts.
I’ll quote the text:
Family in Canada (parent, grandparent, aunt, uncle, sister, brother, niece, nephew, child or grandchild, spouse or common-law partner who is a Canadian citizen or permanent resident living in Canada)
In our language, there is a separate word for mother’s sister’s son, but is there a word for that in English, apart from cousin and relative? Could we unambiguously conclude that he’s not eligible for extra points based on the quote above?
