What is the processing time for the Student Permit Program?
It depends on the country where the international student is applying from. Due to COVID-19, processing times are longer.
When is the best time to start the immigration process?
There are many factors to consider: the time it takes to prepare the international student's requirements from their home country, requirements needed by the school or university, and the Canadian government's processing time for the Student Visa. Due to the processing times by the Canadian government, we advise our clients to start the process as soon as possible to prepare well in advance.
Can I bring my family with me when I apply?
Yes. Your spouse or common-law can and eligible dependents can accompany you while you study. We prepare the visas for all members of your family.
Where can I study?
This program is open to all Canadian provinces except Quebec. We provide you with a list of all the accredited colleges and universities depending on the province you are interested in. Not all colleges and univerisites are accredited for the Post-Graduate Work Permit Program once the international student completes his or her studies.
What can I study?
You have the option to study for a certificate, diploma, Bachelor's Degree, Master's Degree, or PhD. We advise our clients to study at least a one-year course or program which would depend on the international student's age, education, and work experience. Education is an investment that will help you find a job or start your own business in the future - at the minimum, it should be related to the international student's past education or work experience.
Do I need to take an English exam?
This depends on the school or university. We have partnered with schools who do not require proof of English skills depending on the international student's country of origin.
