Study in Canada



Canada attracts international students to come to Canada and study at Canadian K12 schools, Community & Career Colleges and Universities. In last ten years, Canada jumped up the table from 9th to 4th position as the leading Study Abroad Destination. Since 2014, Canada devised new measures and strategy to attract international students. In 2019 a new strategy to attract and diversify the target student markets was introduced. In 2019, Canada issued 615000 study permits.

Canada is a preferred study abroad destination due to its post graduate work permit opportunity to international students that may lead to Permanent Residence in Canada.

During their studies, students at post secondary level are allowed to work part time (20 hours per week) per week during term period, besides unlimited hours on campus. During vacations, they can do full time job.

International students at post secondary are also allowed to bring their spouse and children to Canada. Their spouse can work full time with an open work permit whereas their children are allowed to study at K12 schools without paying any tuition fee.

Children studying in K12 schools may be accompanied by their parents who can remain in Canada on Visitor visa.
