1. Do I need a visa to go to Canada?
Most foreign students will need a Study Permit to study in Canada. However If you wish to study a short-term course or program with a duration of six months or less you do not need a Study Permit. You must complete the course or program within the period authorized for your stay in Canada.

Students from the following countries will require a Temporary Resident Visa to enter Canada. This is an official document issued by a visa office abroad. It is placed in your passport to show that you have met the requirements for admission to Canada as a temporary resident.

To apply for a visa please refer to the nearest Canadian Consulate. Many visa offices have specific local instructions concerning the documentation to be submitted with applications. For a complete list of Canadian Consulates please visit http://www.cic.gc.ca/english /offices/missions.html

This depends on the length of your course. You should consider your expenses for public transportation -$112CAD per month- plus other personal expenses, which could total around $800CAD per month. Remember that if you join the homestay program, this will include three daily meals.

9. How far in advance should I book my course?
You should book your course at least 15 to 75 days before the starting date, depending on the country you are coming from. Students coming from certain countries need a visa to be able to come to Canada. When a course lasts longer than 6 months, a Student Visa is required for every student.
