Upon Arrival

When you arrive in Canada, you will be met by an officer from the Canada Border Services Agency at the airport where he/she will ask to see your travel documents. Make sure they are not packed in your luggage and that you have them with you. Ensure you have the following documents upon your arrival at the Customs:

  • Valid passport, including valid Canadian temporary resident visa if required
  • Letter of Introduction or Study Permit (issued by Citizenship and Immigration Canada)
  • Original letter of admission from the University of Toronto
  • Proof of funds available
  • Medical records and immunization records, translated if applicable (useful but not required)

When you arrive on campus and are settled in, visit the International Student Centre. We offer individual support and assistance through orientation and many information sessions.
