4 Obtaining a Study Permit

"There is a second immigration document that you will need to obtain. After receiving your CAQ, you must apply for a Student Permit, which you can do online. This application will be forwarded to a visa office that processes all applications from your country of citizenship or the country into which you have been lawfully admitted. If your program includes a workplace internship, it will be mentioned in your letter of admission. You must take this into account when applying for your work permit as a student trainee or participant in a cooperative program. You may need to take a medical exam to obtain your Study Permit. You will be informed of such a need when your application is under review."
