International Students in Canada

International students in Canada are in an excellent position to develop their career in Canada and stay permanently. The decision you have already get a Study Permit Canada places you in a unique position.

Study Permits Canada

What Are the Benefits of Studying in Canada?

With over 600,000 students worldwide, Canada has established itself as one of the world’s most popular study destinations. According to research, international students are drawn to Canada for the following reasons:

About Canada’s Universities and Colleges

Over 1,500 colleges and other institutions associated with Immigration, Refugees, and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) are authorized to welcome foreign students. These educational institutions are referred to as designated learning institutions (DLIs). They exist to help international students learn in Canada while they study and remain in the country after graduation.

The list of DLIs permitted by IRCC keeps growing. Please check with the Canadian government’s official website to ensure that the university, college, or other institution you wish to enroll in is authorized by IRCC.

Ontario and Quebec are Canada’s most populous regions, which means they have the most DLIs in the country (approximately 1,000 combined).

Given the vast number of DLIs in Canada, you’re sure to find an education program that meets your requirements.

In general, Canada’s post-secondary education system provides comparable high-quality learning. The reason for this is that Canada strives to ensure that no student is denied the opportunity to obtain a high-quality education because of their financial situation.

Canada also has 150 community colleges, which provide high-quality education. Whereas universities specialize in imparting theoretical knowledge and job training in specific professions (e.g., medicine, engineering, law), community colleges focus on more applied training to assist students get into the workforce faster. College programs are more hands-on than university programs, with the information being related to the workplace.

It’s important to remember that not all colleges are created equal. In fact, similar levels of education may be found at Canadian institutions as well. International students should feel at ease when studying in Canada since the qualification they acquire will support their professional and immigration goals after graduation.

How To Apply For Study Permit Canada

How to Obtain a Study Permit Canada

Before you apply for a study permit Canada, you need:

A designated learning institution is a school that has been authorized by a provincial or territorial government to admit foreign students. All primary and secondary schools in Canada are designated learning institutions.

Make sure it’s on the list if you’re going to a post-secondary institution, such as a college or university.

If you need to take particular courses in order to be accepted into your program (conditional acceptance), you may receive a study permit for the duration of those courses. You must apply to extend your study permit once you have been accepted into your chosen institution.

If you want to attend a Quebec school, current provincial regulations state that international students can only enroll in one of the province’s designated learning institutions selected by the government. To study in Quebec, you’ll also need a study permit from the Government of Canada.

About Your Study Permit Canada

As an international student with a study permit, you must:

  • Always attend an approved learning institution.
  • Make progress in completing your education program
  • Obey the restrictions imposed by your study permit.
  • If you no longer satisfy the criteria, stop studying.
  • When your permit expires in Canada, leave the country.

To begin, you must first verify that you are qualified to apply for a study permit.

Check your study permit eligibility

Apply For A Study Permit

To apply for a study permit Canada, you must first obtain a visa by going to your country’s visa application centre or completing an online form.

We recommend applying for a study permit as soon as you obtain a letter of acceptance from a Canadian institution of higher learning. It might take up to three months to receive a study permit, depending on the nation where you are applying. Total Visa Immigration Services can help you to obtain your student visa without any hassle.

Biometrics Collection

When applying for a visitor visa, a study permit, or a work permit in Canada, you may be required to submit your biometrics (fingerprints and photograph) as part of the application process. If you need to give your biometrics with your application, you must go in person to the Visa Application Centre (VAC) near you.

Find out if you need to give your biometrics.

If you must submit your biometrics, don’t send your study permit application by mail. Please deliver it to the VAC when they collect your biometrics.

What Should You Do After Applying for a Study Permit Canada?

On the Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada website, you may check the status of your study permit application. The data is updated on a daily basis. To begin, you must create an account on the site.

Occasionally, the processing centre will request more information from you. Find out how to go about submitting an application.

How to Apply For A Travel or Work Visa

Everyone does not need a work or travel visa, but you should verify before coming to Canada to see whether your plans require a work or travel visa.

Stays Less Than 6 Months

If you will stay in Canada for less than six months as an international student, you’ll need one of the following visas:

  • A travel visa in your passport if you expect to study in Canada for less than 6 months
  • If your passport is from a designated country, you must first acquire an ETA (Electronic Travel Authorization) before entering Canada.

To find out which travel visa you need, answer these online questions.

Study Pathways For PR in Canada

Study Pathways To Permanent Residence (PR)

International students who finish their post-secondary education in Canada have numerous options to extend their stay and eventually apply for permanent residence.

If you have a suitable degree, your education in Canada may help you get Canadian permanent residency. Many federal and provincial immigration programs value candidates with Canadian educational and employment experience.

You may get Canadian work experience by earning a Post-Graduation Work Permit (PGWP) after completing your education in Canada, which, depending on your Canadian academic program, might allow you to work in Canada for up to three years.

If you wish to stay in Canada permanently, you may accomplish a permanent residency application after obtaining a PGWP. You can then go ahead and apply for a number of federal and provincial permanent residency possibilities, such as:

Express Entry

The most popular approach to obtaining long-term residency in Canada is to create an Express Entry profile. The primary way that Canada manages economic class immigration applications is through Express Entry.

Candidates for the Express Entry program are evaluated using the Comprehensive Ranking System. The Comprehensive Ranking System awards candidates who are young, have Canadian education and work experience and possess high English or French proficiency. Many of Canada’s international students meet these requirements.

Ex-foreign students who express an interest in becoming permanent residents may be eligible for the highly regarded Canadian Experience Class (CEC) program, which allows tens of thousands of former international students and short-term foreign workers to become permanent residents every year.

Provincial Nominee Program (PNP)

The Provincial Nominee Program (PNP) is a federal government program that allows Canadian provinces and territories to choose immigrants who best match their economic needs. Many PNP streams are available, one of which is specially designed for international students.

Quebec Experience Program

The province of Quebec is Canada’s second-largest province and the city of Montreal is a popular location for foreign students. The province has its own immigration system, which differs from those provided by the federal government and PNP. Quebec also encourages former international students to settle in the province permanently. The Quebec Experience Program is one way it is attempting to achieve this goal. The program offers fast-track permanent residency to international students and temporary foreign workers who have graduated or worked in the province for at least six months.

Other Federal Programs

The federal government also operates various economic class immigration programs in addition to the three it administers through Express Entry. International students and/or exemptions from Canadian work experience requirements are eligible for these programs, which include the Atlantic Immigration Program and the Rural and Northern Immigration Pilot.

    I would highly recommend Total Visa Immigration. Mr Vikas Sharma is very polite and a knowledgeable person. He has dealt with our applications in a very organized and professional way.If you have any queries or work related to Canada immigration, you can contact him without hesitation.Many thanks to the team.
    We had a great consultation and experience with Total Visa Immigration Services (TVIS). Our primary POC was Dr Vikas, who guided us through the documentation process. I must say that he was thorough in terms of documentation and didn’t leave a single paper, absence of which would have affected the final decision on our (Mine + Spouse’s) work permit applications.Although, our application looked a bit complex to us, he managed it very well and finally, our visas got approved by the IRCC. I would highly recommend TVIS for all kinds of applications related to Canada immigration.Thank you, Dr Vikas for your time and support.
