Required documents applicable to the country

First application in Canada

If you are staying temporarily in Canada and this is your first application for temporary selection for studies, you must submit a copy of the following supporting documents with your application for temporary selection for studies:

  • payment of fees to examine your application, if you are using a form in PDF format or printed copy of the application instead of the online application
  • legible photocopy of the identity pages of your passport containing your personal information and the passport expiry date
  • letter of admission from the registrar (or admissions office) of the educational institution you will attend
  • proof of financial capacity
  • proof that you will hold health and hospitalization insurance in Québec for the first year of validity of your CAQ for studies and that you will continue to have the necessary funds at your disposable to purchase such insurance for the entire duration of your studies. (Students who will be attending university do not have to provide proof of insurance.)

The required documents must be in French or English. Documents in a language other than French or English must be accompanied by a translation signed and certified by a professional translator.

The original or certified true copy of the documents submitted may be requested by the Ministère at any time during the review of your application. It is important that the person submitting the application keep the original of the certified true copy in their possession.

If your application is accepted, two copies of your CAQ for studies will be mailed to the mailing address indicated on your application form. You must submit the copy marked “Immigration Canada” to the Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada office that will examine your application for a study permit.
