Post Graduation Work & Study Permit

Study Permit Canada

A Canadian study permit allows foreign nationals to study at designated learning institutions in Canada, and is issued by the Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC).

An applicant for a Canadian study permit may include his or her family members on the application, so that they may accompany the applicant to Canada. An accompanying spouse may be able to obtain an open work permit, and young children may be able to study at Canadian elementary and secondary schools.

Stay:  A study permit is usually valid for the length of your study program, plus an extra 90 days. *The 90 days let you prepare to leave Canada or apply to extend your stay.

Cost: CAD 150
