Study Permits

Every year approximately 300,000 students come to Canada to study. Student admissions have gone up exponentially and both the schools and the government have taken notice by opening the doors to people who wish to come and study here in Canada. The Canadian government has always seen the student as desirable potential permanent resident. As a student you have been schooled in the Canadian system and taken the time to understand, not only the education system, but Canada as a whole. You will be given the opportunity to work and then apply for Permanent Residence, this has allowed the next generation Canadian to start their Canadian journey through an academic institution.
