Canada welcomes more than 350,000 international students each year. If you intend to study at a Canadian educational institution, most foreign nationals must apply for a study permit. A study permit, once issued, allows a foreign national to study in Canada at an accredited institution for the duration of the specific course or program.
You may be eligible for a study visa if you meet the following conditions :
• Have been accepted by a school, college, university or educational institution in Canada.
• Prove that you have enough money to pay :
– Your tuition fees;
– Your living expenses for you and the family members accompanying you to Canada; and
– Return transportation for you and accompanying family members to Canada.
• Have a clean criminal record
• Be in good health and ready for a medical examination, if necessary.

Visa for temporary workers

Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) facilitates the temporary entry into Canada of foreign workers under the Temporary Foreign Worker Program (TFWP).

The PTÉT aims to help Canadian employers recruit foreign workers in response to labor shortages.

The PTÉT is made up of four components: skilled workers, low-skilled workers, the Seasonal Agricultural Worker Program and the Live-in Caregiver Program.

Foreign workers must have a validated job offer and a work permit before arriving in Canada.

Family members of the temporary worker

In some cases, spouses or common-law partners will be eligible for an open work permit. If your children want to study in Canada, they will need to apply for a study permit.

An open work permit allows the holder to work in any job with any employer, with limited exceptions. An open work permit also means that the holder’s employer does not need an LMIA.

Generally, the eligibility of the spouse for an open work permit depends on the work skill level of the temporary worker.

If you are considered a skilled skills worker, your spouse or common-law partner may be eligible for an open work permit. You must also be authorized to work in Canada for a period of at least six months.

If you are considered a low-skilled worker, your spouse and dependent children will only be eligible for an open work permit through an ongoing pilot project.

    Visitor visa to Canada (tourism)

    A visitor is a person who wants to come to Canada to work, study or visit.

    Every visitor, except those exempted, must obtain a visa before arriving. All visitors who need a visa must have the visa when they are at a port of entry.

    About the visitor visa

    A visitor visa (also known as a temporary resident visa) is an official document that we put in your passport. It indicates that you meet the necessary requirements to enter Canada. Most visitors need a visitor visa to come to Canada. You might also need to have one if you transit through a Canadian airport on the way to your final destination.

      The length of stay allowed

      Most people can stay in Canada for up to six months.

      At the point of entry, however, the border services officer may allow you to stay for a period of less or more than six months. Where applicable, it will indicate in your passport the date on which you must leave the country. He could also give you a document called « visitor record », on which this date will appear.

      If you don’t get a stamp in your passport, you can stay for six months from the day you entered Canada or until your passport expires, whichever comes first. If you need a stamp, you can request one from a border services officer.

      If you arrive at an airport that uses primary inspection kiosks,

      ask the border services officer for a stamp after your transaction at the kiosk
