International Students


Study Permits and Visas

Studying in Canada is an excellent opportunity to gain a global education, dive further into your career, develop a sense of community, and walk away with incredible peers and fond memories. However, international students require a study permit to begin learning in an institution in Canada.

To apply for a study permit, depending on what country you are travelling from, you must submit an application, along with fees and any supporting documentation. Remember that a study visa is a document specifically issued for travel purposes and does not compare to a study permit. The permit is required if you would like to stay in Canada and study; the visa is only for travel purposes, and its rules and exceptions are different.

Esna Law PC has extensive knowledge to help you navigate the process without concern. We also work tirelessly with many foreign nationals who contact us from overseas to begin the process.
