Important Updates January 24, 2024

We'd like to inform you that there are important updates regarding Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) study permit applications in Canada. This year, these applications are capped at 360,000 across the country and will require an Attestation Letter from the Ministry of Higher Education.

Currently, the process for obtaining the Attestation Letter has not been implemented, and it could be in place as late as March 31, 2024, as per the deadline given to provinces by IRCC. Until the BC Provincial Government establishes this process, we regret to inform you that we are unable to provide students with Attestation Letter for submitting their Study Permit applications. Consequently, we strongly advise our applicants not to apply for their Study Permits until this process is established. Any applications made without the required letter will be returned and refunded by IRCC.

Please also note that applications submitted before January 22nd, 8:30 am EST will be processed without the need for the Attestation Letter.

The allocation of Study Permits among provinces/territories is yet to be determined by the respective ministries, and we will share those details as soon as they are communicated.

As for the potential impact of these changes on our enrolments, it remains uncertain and depends on factors yet to be determined. For more detailed information and updates, please refer to the following link:

We kindly ask for your patience during this period. We are actively seeking further clarification from the relevant authorities, and we understand the impact this may have on everyone involved. In the event that your plans are significantly affected, we encourage you to wait until after March 31, 2024, to initiate discussions about potential options. 

Thank you for your understanding and cooperation.
