STUDY PERMIT - TEMPORARY RESIDENCE
What is a study permit?
The study permit is a government issued document that allows foreign nationals to study at designated learning institutions (DLI) in Canada. Most foreign nationals need a study permit to study in Canada. Make sure you have all the documents you need before you apply.
Please note, Your study permit is not a visa. It doesn’t let you enter Canada. You may also need a visitor visa or an electronic travel authorization (eTA).
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.

are enrolled at a designated learning institution (DLI)

living expenses for yourself and any family members who come with you to Canada and
