Study Permit in Canada
The study permit is a document issued to foreign nationals wishing to undertake or continue their studies in Canada.
What are the requirements to be able to apply?
First, the applicant must have received a letter of acceptance from a school or university on the list of designated educational institutions, or DLIs.
They must also have the financial means to continue their studies in Canada, in particular to pay the tuition fees, the living expenses, and the costs related to the return travel once the studies are completed.
Note that if you wish to study in the province of Quebec, you must also hold a Quebec “CAQ” certificate of acceptance.
Who is exempt from presenting a study permit to study in Canada?
Almost all foreigners wishing to continue their studies in Canada must obtain a study permit. However, there are some exceptions.
