Indian Students should apply to a participating college. They may be considered under the SPP program if they meet specific set of criteria.

Canada college admission application submission under the SPP is at the discretion of each participating college.

Canada Student Partners Program has partnership with Canada High Council in India.

All Study Permit application checklists have been revised and improved as a result of the Student Partners Program framework to help students make simpler applications. All students are strongly encouraged to submit supporting documents as indicated in the checklists to facilitate the processing of their applications. Checklists are available online at VFS

It is strongly recommended that you submit your application by 01 August for September entry and by 01 December for January entry. Applications for a Study Permit received after August 15 for programs beginning in September or after December 15 for the ones beginning in January will not normally be processed in time for the start of class and will likely be refused.
