Announced on the last year, there are new changes to the study permit for International students wanting to study in Canada.

Now officers will issue a study permit for the amount of time required for the first program of study. This would be a prerequisite program such as an ESL (English as a second language) or a French as a second language program.


Before this update you would apply for the study visa with a conditional letter of acceptance from the designated learning institute. This conditional acceptance letter would state that after you have completed the prerequisite. Then the study permit would be issued for the entire time frame for both programs, plus 90 days. The second DLI would also have to be listed on this study permit.

The reason for this change is that there has been a concern that students may not complete the prerequisite (ESL) program but “will continue to hold a valid study permit allowing them to work.”

Now by issuing the study permit for the ESL/ prerequisite program only that will make sure that the compliance reporting is sent to correct college or university. After the student has completed their prerequisite program they will then be able to apply for a new permit. They will need to demonstrate that all requirements for the first program have been satisfied by (Government of Canada).
