Study in Canada
As per Citizenship and Immigration Canada's statistics, more than 130,000 students come to study in Canada every year to attend varied courses. In addition to this number are many more that come to Canada to learn English or French. Canada welcomes foreign students and tries to facilitate their entry.
As a general rule, most foreign students need a Study Permit to study in Canada. However, there are few exceptions to this rule; for example, you do not need a Study Permit if you are planning to take a course or program in Canada with duration of six months or less. You must complete the course or program within the period authorized for your stay in Canada.
VisaOne Canada encourage you to apply for a Study Permit before you come to Canada because you may wish to continue your studies in another program after you complete the short-term course or program. On the other hand, if you do not have a valid Study Permit and wish to continue your studies, you will have to leave Canada in order to apply for one. Moreover, there are certain benefits also to having a study permit. You are eligible to work part-time on campus at the college or university at which you are registered as a full-time student.
In most of the cases, you need a Temporary Resident Visa in addition to your Study Permit. However, you do not have to make a separate application or pay a separate fee. The Temporary Resident Visa is issued at the same time as the documentation that you will need to enter Canada as a student.
Foreign students have to meet certain requirements when applying for study permits. Prospective students must:
- present a letter of acceptance from the educational institution where they intend to study;
- demonstrate that they are able to pay the tuition fees for the course or program of studies that they intend to pursue;
- financially support themselves and any family members who are with them during their period of study;
- cover the transportation cost for themselves and any family members to and from Canada; and
- pass a CIC medical examination, if required.
- Moreover, Foreign Students must satisfy the officer that they are not inadmissible to Canada; and they will leave Canada at the end of the period that they are allowed to stay.

On 18 April 2005, the Government of Canada announced new initiatives to better attract, integrate and retain international students in regions throughout the country. The first will allow international students at post-secondary educational institutions to work off campus while completing their studies so that they can experience the Canadian labour market and gain a wider understanding of Canadian society. The second will allow students to work for two years rather than one year after their graduation. Another change is that post-secondary international students can now transfer between programs of study and institutions without applying for a change to the conditions of their study permit.
