Our team of International Student Advisors can help enrolled students with their student-related immigration questions through group immigration advising, drop-in sessions and one-to-one appointments. Advisors are Regulated International Student Immigration Advisors (RISIAs) or Regulated Canadian Immigration Consultants (RCICs).

Study Permit Extensions
Your study permit is the official authorization for your legal studies in Canada. It’s essential to be aware of the expiration date of your study permit.
Co-op Work Permits
A co-op work permit is mandatory for programs with a work component such as a field placement, internship, co-op or clinical placement, even if the work is unpaid and conducted on or off campus.
Post-Graduation Work Permit (PGWP)
Post-Graduation Work Permits (PGWPs) are for international students who have graduated from a PGWP-eligible Canadian Designated Learning Institution (DLI).
Temporary Resident Visa Extensions
A temporary resident visa (TRV) is an official counterfoil document issued by a visa office that is placed in a person’s passport to show they have met the requirements for admission to Canada as a temporary resident.
You can only start working in Canada when you start your study program. You can’t work before your studies begin.
You and your employer must make sure you can work off campus without a work permit before you start working.
