Also, one of the following situations has to apply:

An amount was claimed on line 305 for the dependant,

An amount was claimed on line 306 or line 315 and the dependant was your, your spouse's or common-law partner's parent, grandparent, child, grandchild, brother, sister, aunt, uncle, niece, or nephew. (or you could have claimed if the dependant no income and been at least 18 years old in the previous year)
