Student Immigration Services
Gaining a student visa, a study permit visa, and enrolling in an authorized learning institution in Canada might be an efficient first step toward obtaining Canadian permanent residency. Our immigration lawyers assist international students in obtaining Canadian study permits and guiding them toward permanent resident status.
International students entering Canada on a student visa may be accompanied by their spouse or common-law partner, who may apply for a dependent study permit or an open work permit valid for the duration of the primary applicant’s studies. International students may be accompanied by small children, who can apply for a study permit and attend school as well.
International students can work off-campus for up to 20 hours per week during the school year and full-time during the summer. Students who successfully complete their programme of studies can apply for a post-graduation work visa, which allows them to work lawfully in Canada for three years. During this time, spouses and common-law partners are also eligible for temporary work visas.

International students can apply for permanent residency through programmes like:
