It is granted to people who are willing to enroll as full-time students in one of the colleges, universities or any other recognized educational establishment in Canada. The duration of the Study Permit depends on the educational program, from one year upwards.
A study permit may bring you many advantages.
First and foremost, a study permit allows full-time international students to work up to 20 hours a week during the school year and full-time during the summer. It is a great opportunity to get some Canadian work experience, which is crucial if you desire to stay in Canada and find a job after you complete your studies. Please note that this rule does not apply to language school students, who do not have the right to work during their studies.
Second advantage: the student’s spouse may obtain a work permit, which will allow him or her to hold any position.
After graduating, international students may obtain a Post-Graduation Work Permit (PGWP) valid for a period from 8 months up to 3 years depending on the length of the studies. Studying in Canada remains the easiest and surest way of immigrating to the country.
Thanks to my education and experience, I have come to know the Canadian education system inside and out, which is why you will find my help invaluable in your immigration journey.
