Study Permit – Renewals

If you will be studying in Canada for more than six months, you require a valid study permit for the duration of your studies. A Study Permit allows you to study in Canada and is different from your Entry Visa which allows you to enter Canada. Students and their guardians are responsible for ensuring student permits are valid for the entire duration of study in Canada.
Students and guardians must provide a copy of the Permit to the International Education Program Office.

For information on Study Permit renewal, please refer to the Citizenship and Immigration Canada website at www.cic.gc.ca and look under the tab Study > Extend your study permit. For Information on Visitor Visa renewal look under the tab Visit > Extend your stay.
If you would like the assistance of an agency, please refer to the Immigration Consultants of Canada Regulatory Council website at http://www.iccrc-crcic.ca/home.cfm.

Please note that the International Education Program does not recommend or endorse any particular agency. A fee will be charged by these agencies. You can visit the message board outside Room 166 for a list of local service providers.

Because of Immigration laws, we are not able to provide direct assistance with the renewal of your Study Permit and we thank you for your understanding. We are, as always, here to answer any questions or help with any concerns.
