1. Enroll at a Designated Learning Institution (DLI).

2. Get your documents ready, including proof of acceptance, proof of identity, and proof of financial support.

3. Apply for a student permit online or via mail.

4. Prepare for arrival once your student permit has been approved. You will need to have the following documents:

  • Valid eTA or temporary resident visa
  • Valid letter of acceptance from a school
  • Proof of funds to support yourself in Canada
  • Any other letters of reference
