Study Permit

 

Most foreign nationals need a study permit to study in Canada.

The study permit is a document that is issued that allows foreign nationals to study at designated learning institutions (DLI) in Canada.

While studying in Canada under a study permit the applicant must:

  • always be enrolled at a DLI

  • make progress towards completing the program

  • respect any conditions listed on the study permit

  • stop studying if the applicant no longer meet the requirements and

  • leave Canada when the permit expires

Depending on the case, there may be conditions on the study permit such as:

  • the level of studies the applicant can attend

  • if the applicant is allowed to work in Canada

  • if the applicant can’t travel within Canada

  • the date the applicant must stop studying

 

A study permit is usually valid for the length of the study program, plus an extra 90 days. This extra time lets the applicant prepares to leave Canada or apply to extend his/her stay.

  • If the applicant can’t finish his/her courses before the date on his/her permit, the applicant must apply to extend his/her stay as a student.

  • If the applicant finishes his/her studies early, the permit will stop being valid 90 days after the applicant complete the studies (no matter what day is printed on the study permit).

     

    The applicant has completed the studies either

  • on the date he/she gets the first notification from his/her school (such as an email, letter, transcript, etc.) or

  • When the applicant gets his/her degree, diploma or certificate.

 

The applicant must prove provide proof of the date he/she got one of these.
