Study in Canada as an international student
Apply to study in Canada as an international student, extend your study permit and find out about working while you study or after you graduate.
Canada Post is currently in labour negotiations. Failed negotiations could lead to delays in:
- receiving applications mailed within or to Canada
- sending mail to you
If you’re planning on traveling to Canada or submitting an application (including for a passport or other travel document), apply early.
If you are travelling within the next six weeks, apply for a passport in person at a Passport Office, or send your passport or other travel document application by courier.
Visit Canada Post for more information before sending any application by mail. We’ll keep you updated as we learn more.
Study permit holders may receive emails from the following email address: IRCC.DNISPCompliance-ConformitePEERN.IRCC@cic.gc.ca. Please note that if you receive a message from this email address, it is a real message from IRCC and it is important for you to follow the instructions by the date indicated in the message.
