Study Permits for CanadaTo study in Canada, international students may need a study permit or a temporary resident visa, but before applying for a study permit, students must have been accepted at a recognized school, university or college in Canada. However, not everyone must have these documents. Check the Government of Canada website at http://www.cic.gc.ca/english/study/study.asp to find out what documents are needed.
Many visa offices have specific local instructions about which documents to submit with applications. Find out what they are, and make sure to include all the correct documents. Consult the list of Canadian visa offices at http://www.cic.gc.ca/english/information/offices/missions.asp to find the office responsible for your country.
