International students with an approved study permit are allowed to enter Canada under certain conditions.
February 21, 2021: all travellers including students must meet the new testing and quarantine requirements when coming to Canada.
- take the test within 72 hours of your scheduled flight departure time for your flight that lands in Canada
- provide one of the accepted types of tests, not an antigen test
- keep proof of your test results for the 14-day period that begins on the day you enter Canada
All travellers entering Canada will be required to take a test before leaving the airport, stay at a hotel designated by the government for 3 days while waiting for the test result. Even if the test is negative, an additional 11-day quarantine is required.
February 12, 2021: International students are also allowed to complete their entire program online from abroad and still be eligible for a Post-Graduation Work Permit (PGWP).
These measures apply to all international students who:
- are enrolled in a PGWP-eligible program
- began, or will begin, a program in any semester from spring 2020 to fall 2021, or whose program was already in progress in March 2020
- have a study permit or approval for a study permit, or applied for a study permit prior to starting their program and are eventually approved
- meet all other PGWP criteria
More than 130,000 students come to study in Canada every year and even more come to Canada to learn English or French. Foreign students are always welcomed and add a rich culture to our classrooms and campuses. As a student in Canada, if your studies will last less than six months, no Study Permit is required. Any studies beyond six months require a Study Permit, in addition to a Temporary Resident Visa, if you are not from a visa-exempt country.
Canada hosts some of the top universities and colleges in the world and has been an attractive location for international students to further their education.
We have arrangements with more than one thousand universities, colleges, language schools and high schools in Canada. We can assist you navigating through all the options and choosing the most suitable for you, according to your budget, which province or city you wish to live in, and the area of study you wish to pursue.
The great advantage is international students are allowed to work in Canada, inside and outside the campus, for any employer, if taking a full-time eligible program at a Designated Learning Institution (DLI). They can work part-time (20 hours per week) while taking classes and full-time during summer or non-semester breaks. This key experience gained during the education period can assist students in applying for permanent residence after completion of studies.
The Canadian government recognizes the importance of international students to our country’s economic growth. It continues to support recent graduates through a variety of immigration programs across the country that provide unique opportunities for students looking to remain in Canada and apply for permanent residence status.
We can assist you to make the right decision: choose the eligible educational institution and program of studies that will support your career and application for permanent residency in Canada!
We assist throughout the (S2PR) student-permanent residency stream, selecting educational institutions and programs, enrolling the student at the school, applying for the study permit and defining the strategy for obtaining Canadian permanent residency.
