Study in Canada
To study in Canada’s educational institutions, foreign students need a study visa. The application for a study permit in Canada, and especially in Québec, must be accompanied by a complete list of documents.
Before even receiving a letter of acceptance from the college or university in Canada where you will study, we start preparing your permit application. We assist you in the various steps to be taken to gather the required documents quickly and hassle-free. We also help you put together the application for the Québec Acceptance Certificate (CAQ) if you plan to study in Montreal or elsewhere in the province of Québec for the advantageous tuition fees.
At the end of your study program, if you wish to settle permanently in Québec, we take care of verifying which status you’re eligible for and assisting you in your efforts to obtain permanent residence:
- We look after your application for the Québec Selection Certificate (CSQ) in the skilled workers category if you’re a student or graduate of Québec;
- For CSQ holders, we prepare a complete application for permanent residence.
