Study Permits/Visas and Immigration

UTSC has no control and is not responsible for the issuance of Canadian Study Permits. This matter rests entirely with the Canadian government.

International applicants are strongly advised to check very early for the requirements for student study permits and entry visas with Citizenship and Immigration Canada (CIC). Do not wait until an admission decision has been made in order to begin the process of gathering required documentation for studying in Canada. A medical examination and proof of funding may also be required. Consult the nearest CIC office or website immediately for the full list of requirements.

The UTSC International Student Centre and the Centre for International Experience provide a variety of services regarding immigration regulations, healthcare, and other important non-academic matters after applicants accepted FAIR program/UTSC admission offers.
