To apply for a study permit, you need an acceptance letter from a designated learning institution.
A designated learning institution is a school approved by a provincial or territorial government to host international students.
All primary and secondary schools in Canada are designated learning institutions.
If you plan to attend a post-secondary school, make sure it is on the list.
If you plan to work after graduation then you need to know if you are eligible to work after you graduate.
Not all designated learning institutions qualify you to be eligible for the Post-Graduation Work Permit Program.
To qualify for a post-graduation work permit you need the DLI graduation plus all the additional CIC criteria.
The list below will let you know if your designated learning institution offers programs that will make you eligible for a post-graduation work permit.
Step 1: Choose the province or territory your school is in.
Step 2: Type in keywords such as the name of the school, city, etc.
Step 3: Find the designated learning institution number and write it under the section Details of intended study in Canada on your study permit application.
