What is the CO-OP work permit?

Some study programs include mandatory work experience as part of their curriculum. 

Therefore, if your program of study includes co-op (mandatory/mandatory), then you need to apply to your co-op along with your study permit application (many schools issue a letter supporting the issuance of a co-op permit to submit with your application). You must then apply to the CBSA officer when you enter Canada for your co-op permit, which is different from your study permit and which must be issued upon entry into Canada. 

Remember that the co-op work permit is not the same as the authorization to work 20 hours off campus as the study permit. The co-op work permit is a separate work permit, it is not related to the authorization to work part-time in Canada.

Can I register without the language test?

No, unfortunately we need proof of language proficiency even if you wish to do a pathway (see FAQ number 2 to understand the pathway). At Immiland we do not send incomplete documents because in order for a Canadian institution to reserve a place for you, you must have all the documents including the language test.

Only Lambton College in the province of Ontario has a 100% free internal test with us that you can take if you wish to enroll in this institution once we send your application.

Who can apply for an open work permit to work for any employer?

You may be eligible for an open work permit if:

-You are an international student who graduated from a DLI and are eligible for the PGWP
-You are a student who can no longer meet the costs of your studies (indigent student - conditions apply)

-Are a youth worker participating in special international mobility programs (famously known as a working holiday)

In each of these situations, you must meet additional criteria to be eligible.

What is the language level required for admission?

It varies a lot from program to program, the recommendation is that you first select the program of interest and we will gladly send you the details of the program, with all the admission requirements including the language level required for admission.

However, for a technical (undergraduate) program the level normally required is an academic IELTS of 6.0. For a postgraduate program an academic IELTS of 6.5 /7 and for a master's program an academic IELTS of 7 and above. With differences in their bands depending on the selected program.

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.
