If you want to study in Canada, you must meet some important immigration requirements. You may require both a Study Permit and a Temporary Visitor Visa (TRV). Study Permit is issued by an Immigration Officer. It allows you to come to or remain in Canada to take:

  • An English as a Second Language Program of more than three months;
  • An academic, professional or vocational training program at an approved college, university or other institution.

Study Permits and Temporary Visitor Visas are not issued from within Canada. You must apply to Citizenship and Immigration Canada (CIC) which is located in your nearest Canadian Embassy, High Commission or Consulate. Citizenship and Immigration Canada is a Canadian government department and operates independently with no connections to any Canadian educational institution. Official information on requirements for a student authorization may be obtained from a CIC office in Canada, a Canadian Embassy, High Commission or Consulate, and/or on their website at http://www.cic.gc.ca/english/index-can.asp.

In order to qualify for a Study Permit, you must first receive a letter of acceptance and an International Student Acceptance Information form from the College. After you have been accepted for a course of study, you must present this letter and form to the nearest Canadian Embassy, High Commission or Consulate to complete your application for a Study Permit and a Temporary Visitor Visa. An officer there will tell you how to proceed and the documents required, such as:

  • Acceptance letter and acceptance information form from Canadore College
  • Receipt from the college for your confirming deposit
  • Evidence of your good character and, if applicable, a letter from your sponsor
  • Evidence of adequate funds to live and study in Canada for the duration of your program, including return transportation
  • Certificate of medical clearance
  • Your valid passport
