The first consultation for new Study Permit is an important step to discuss your immigration status, study goals, long-term plans after graduation, and develop a path forward to manage your information required to start the application.
After you apply
New Study Permit applications submitted for clients outside of Canada would also require the completion of biometrics and medical exam for immigration. These requirements are controlled by IRCC and must be completed at designated Visa Application Centre (VAC) in your country of residence, or closest to you if none available locally.
Applications submitted from inside Canada (i.e. Study Permit extensions) would go through the standard processing period controlled by IRCC. Make sure to start the extension application early enough (at least 90 days before expiry) to remain in Canada with legal status.
Receiving your Study Permit Approval
The processing time and delivery method of Study Permit approval for applications from inside or outside Canada differ substantially - IRCC application processing times.
Normally, if a Study Permit extension (in-Canada applications) is approved, the official document is mailed by IRCC to the assigned legal representative in Canada.
Applications made from outside Canada, approval by IRCC is provided in the POE Letter, and the legal document (Study Permit) is issued at the Port of Entry by the border agency officer after reviewing your identification and other documents.
Arrival in Canada
Arrival at a Canadian Port of Entry (POE) is the first step towards starting your future as a student in Canada. You are required to present your POE Letter (a.k.a. Port of Entry Introduction Letter) to the border agency officer. At this point, you will also present various identification documents as proof of identity for entering Canada, so the officer can verify the documents in order to grant you a Study Permit.
All documentation presented must be true and accurate to fulfill your intent to enter Canada. You must fully understand and follow the guidelines and instructions for successful entry into Canada as a student.
Student Life in Canada
Life in a new country can be fun, exciting, and overwhelming. Canada is one of the top diverse countries in the world, thus it offers a variety of lifestyles.
Students in Canada have the opportunity to make friends from many different countries and expand their knowledge of other cultures. Either you choose a home-stay family, or student residence environment, choosing which lifestyle suits you best is very easy, and in our opinion probably one of the most fun experience!
You made it! Graduation is a milestone that brings joy and you look forward to many other successes. Whether you decide to return to your home country, or stay in Canada for further education or work temporarily, the decision will require pre-planning prior to reaching completion of your studies.
There are options available to stay in Canada and gain work experience after you graduate - the three main streams are Post Graduation Work Permit (PGWP), Open Work Permit, or Employer-Specific Work Permit.
