A study permit is a document that allows foreign nationals to study at designated learning institutions (DLIs) in Canada. Most foreign nationals need a study permit to study in Canada. To apply for a study permit, you must have a letter of acceptance from a designated learning institution. You can apply for a study permit online or by mail. Once you have been granted a study permit, you will be able to stay in Canada for the duration of your study program. You can also apply for a work permit to work in Canada while you are studying. If you are planning to study in Canada, it is important to start the application process early. This will give you enough time to get your study permit and make arrangements for your travel and accommodation.
