Children of 14 years of age and older can come to Canada to pursue their secondary education. Such children may be accompanied by a parent or a guardian, or they can be assigned to a Canadian family, where they will have a separate room, home-made hot meals and constant care of a substitute family. We hand-pick our families and make absolutely certain that the children are well taken care of.
College or University Education in Canada
A student can apply or transfer some of their credits to a Canadian College or University after successfully writing a IELTS or TOEFL at the place of their residence. Similar examinations are also available at some of the Canadian Universities for students after their arrival. Once you are accepted by a Canadian College or University, you are eligible to apply for a Study Permit. This Permit is usually issued for one year and it can be extended for as long as the study program requires. After you obtain a Canadian Diploma, you can work in Canada for up to three years without leaving the country to obtain a Work Permit.
A student (with the exception of private colleges) is allowed to work for up to 20 hours a week during their studies on a valid work permit, thus, earning money to sustain themselves throughout.
Reminder: Two years of full-time education or one year of full-time work experience in Canada adds five (5) points during your immigration process, the difference which may be decisive.
Certain students can qualify for immigration under the Canada Employment Class. More information can be found above.
