Study Permit in Canada

Study Permits in Canada are issued to foreign nationals to receive education from a designated learning institute (DLI) in Canada.  A study permit is not a visa; it does not allow you to enter Canada.  However, it does provide a gateway for a visitor visa and is a great way to live and study in Canada.

A Canadian study permit allows you to stay for your study program’s length plus an extra 90 days. At the end of the 90 days, you can apply to extend your stay—the length of stay with a study permit gets determined by the term of the program you are taking. If you complete the program early or finish it past the expiration date, the stay duration can change.
