Frequently Asked Questions

Will my partner and I be able to work while I am studying the program? Does the time I work while I am a student count towards my residency?

Yes, you will be able to work while studying and your partner will be eligible for the open work permit. The time you work while studying is not relevant for residency. However, the work time that counts towards residency for the international student is the POST GRADUATION WORK PERMIT (PGWP), this permit can be obtained after graduation and international students are eligible depending on the institution to which they apply.

At Immiland we only offer institutions that make them eligible for this permit, it is our seal of guarantee.

Other questions you may be interested in

What happens if you do not meet the conditions of the study permit?

If Immigration Canada discovers that you have not complied with the conditions of your study permit, you may be asked to leave Canada and/or this element may create a negative immigration history that could have repercussions to your future processes. Please review your permit conditions and restrictions very carefully to avoid misunderstandings and contraventions.

I am self-employed / freelancer, how can I document my work experience?

If you are independent or freelance, the following are examples and alternatives that you can present:

  • Company registration or alternatively,
  • Registration as independent or alternatively,
  • Service contracts with customers or alternatively,
  • Letters from customers 2 or 3 attesting that you have rendered services to them.

Any of the above documents will allow us to attest to your self-employed occupations. In a complementary, but not main way, you can optionally add any of the following, to strengthen the genuineness of your business: 

  • Self-employed business cards -this document alone does not carry much weight for the officer, ideally it should be accompanied by one of the documents mentioned above.

Web presence: website, facebook -this document alone does not carry much weight for the officer, ideally it should be accompanied by one of those mentioned above-.

When can I register for the selected program?

Enrollment normally opens 10 to 12 months prior to the start of classes, as soon as enrollment opens we can register you, as long as you have ALL the requirements we ask for. It is recommended to apply at least 7 months in advance (because you must take into account the time it takes to process the letter of acceptance (LOA) which will be approximately 4 weeks to 8 weeks sometimes 10 depending on the college/university) plus the time it takes to process the study permit (approximately 4 to 6 months).

My study/work permit was issued for less time than the duration of my study program or job offer, why?

It is possible that your passport expired before the end of your study program or job offer. Canada cannot issue a permit beyond the validity of your passport.

Are the plans affordable?

Yes, they start at $25 CAD and for Immiland customers under the code Moving2Canada you get $10 CAD off.
