Here’s a checklist of the documents you’ll need to apply for a Canadian study permit:
- Letter of Acceptance from a Canadian educational institution with a valid DLI (Designated Learning Institute) number. You will be required to attach the original letter.
All our educational partners have registered DLI numbers and their Letter of Acceptance is fully recognized.
- Valid proof of identity for every single person accompanying the family, including recent passport size photos, their name, and date of birth.
- Proof of financial support according to which you must prove that you can support yourself and all your family members while in Canada. This would include your bank account details with a Canadian bank, bank account details for the past four months, proof of loan details secured from a financial institution as a student, among others.
- Letter of Explanation, with details about why you are applying for a study permit, even though you may not need one. Having a study permit also gives you the freedom to work part-time on campus as a full-time student. At the same time, if you wish to continue studying in Canada, you can apply to renew the permit while living in Canada. You don’t have to leave the country to get it renewed.
