WHO CAN APPLY
You can apply for a Canadian student visa or study permit if you have been accepted by a Canadian high school, university, community college, Christian college, career college, graduate school or online program.
You must prove that you can pay all of your expenses, including return transportation for yourself and any family members who accompany you.
You must be in good health and willing to complete a medical examination.
You must be a law-abiding citizen with no criminal record, and must not pose a risk to Canadian security.
Finally, you must satisfy an immigration officer that you will leave Canada when your studies are complete.
If the student is a minor by Canadian law, they must either be accompanied by a parent or guardian or they must be cared for by a responsible adult in Canada. This adult is known as a custodian. A custodian has legal permission to act in place of a parent. This requires two notarized documents: one signed by the parents or guardians in the student's home country, and the other by the custodian in Canada.
