Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada has clarified the rules for international students applying to study courses in Canada for a duration of less than six months. The Pie News says that though the documentation says that students cannot attain a study permit for courses that are less than six months long, the IRCC has confirmed that students are allowed to do this. “In the meantime, applicants who wish to apply for a study permit for a short-term program can indicate during the eligibility questionnaire that they intend to stay in Canada for longer than six months,” reads a statement by IRCC. “This will generate their document checklist for a study permit application.” The Pie News (National)
